Sending Large Files

I'm always looking for ways to send large files to people. Okay, maybe not "always," but definitely more than just once in a while. I've tried a few different solutions with varying success, but I like the looks of two alternatives that I stumbled across yesterday.

The first one came from Emily Chang at eHub and is called FileURLS. It seems to be really simple and apparently anonymous. I would caution sending any kind of sensitive (private) information in this manner, but that's probably true about any of these solutions.

After seeing the first one I snooped around a bit more and found a review by Michael Horowitz at cNet about a service called SendThisFile which has both free and paid (premium) accounts.

All in all, these appear worthy of further exploration. If anyone has any experience with either of them I'd love to hear about it.

You can also try palshare
They allow you to upload complete folders and files and it also zips your files during uploading so the download process is really easy and fast. Seems to work really well.
