Free Service to send Large files via email?

Hi

Am looking for a free service that would let me send a 30gb file via email if this possible,or somewhere even i could upload the file too for someone to get access too.

Any help would be appreciated

Thank You

The PogoPlug is a free service, since you provide the service yourself once you buy the device:

eFax has a 'Large File Sharing' feature (Watch Video). I don't know however, whether that feature is included in its free services.
Check the website: www.efax.com

So basically, you want a FREE email server that will let you store 30GB on it?

Good Luck with that.

Every email system I've used caps their file storage at far less than that -- even the paid services.

Besides -- how are you uploading this? Have you run metrics on how long it will take to upload 30GB?

No server admin in their right mind will accept a 30GB email file. Even if you could find a server to send it, the other side won't accept it.

Email is not good for file transfers and is not a file server. We put a 20MB cap on message size where I work.

You could use a program like uTorrent. Create a torrent with the 30gb folder then email the torrent to whoever & let them know what times your computer is on so they can download it directly from you. It will take some time to download though.

One option would be to buy a USB thumb drive for about 25 for a 32 GB one & send it by mail.
