Whether working on creative projects or administrative programs, new file-sharing tools provide a myriad of ways to share documents, schedules, audio, video, and other data across the Internet—even large files that email can’t handle.

Transfer Big Files, You Send It, and DropSend.com are easy to use sites for transfering files as big as 1GB for free.
