Too big to Email? Drop.io!

December 15, 2008

Attachments are a handy way to share files. One problem, our Email Inboxes are only so big. Sometimes you have a file that’s just too big to send. You need drop.io – a simple private way to share your computer files.

Instead of sending your file to your recipient(s), you upload your file to drop.io. Then, you use drop.io to notify everyone where to get the file. Then, they click on the short link you’ve set up, like http://drop.io/humungouspowerpoint, to access the file.

How?

  1. Go to drop.io
  2. Come up with a short name for your drop, or use the random suggested code. You’re link will be drop.io/yournamehere.
  3. Load the file, just like you would for an attachment.
  4. You can set the file to be removed after a few days or weeks. You can even password it for extra protection.
  5. Plug-in the Email addresses you want to send the file to.  You’re done.
