Emails have become one of the efficient and faster ways to communicate with people. It offers many capabilities, an important one being the possibility of appending other attachments. Although, all the email services available out there has certain caps on their attachment capabilities.
Most of the email services do not allow you to send large files. For example, Gmail does not allow you to send more than 25 MB in a single email. This is the highest among any services out there as most of them are limited to just 10 MB. Here we enumerate several ways you can send those large files over the email.
Using a Cloud Service
There are many cloud services available out there which offer you enough space for free. Google Drive offers you 15 GB for storage. You can store your files in these cloud services and send the link through the email. The files over the cloud services are safe and encrypted. Moreover, you can edit your files in real-time over the Internet.
Using Large File Sharing Service
There are specific file-sharing services available over the Internet, which allows you to send your large files over the Internet in a safe manner. There are services such as “Jumpshare” and “Securely Send”. There are certain limits such as 250 MB over Jumpshare if you use a free account, but these services are quick and easy to use.
Jumpshare is one of the largest file-sharing platforms on the internet. The best part about the service is that it supports up to 200 file formats. If you are working in a team, it can help you share and edit files in real-time. Moreover, you can work with your files on the go using mobile devices. It also integrates with hundreds of apps and is a great alternative for businesses. Plus, it comes with additional security hence, you need not worry about the safety of your files.
Splitting the File
This might be a tad more work than the methods described above. The proposition is simple: You split your large files over small pieces using a splitting software. You can use software such as 7 zip or WinRAR to split your existing file over smaller pieces and attach them over the email. The recipient would just have to extract the file and it would do the trick.
WinRAR is one of the most popular file compression and splitting software out there. One can use WinRAR to compress the files into much smaller sizes. Moreover, it can also split a single file or folder into several smaller packets. It also offers other features such as encrypting your file for security and also supports a large array of file formats.
As emails are becoming more and more popular, more of these services are being introduced. Most of them have a limit imposed on them unless a certain amount is paid for subscription. So, if you want to send a large amount of data, then a subscription to any of these services should be preferred.
