  • SendThisFile is a file sharing site in the strictest sense. You can share large files and you get 500GB of monthly bandwidth. However, it lacks many of the features that are standard with most file sharing services.

  • Sendthisfile is among the best of file transferring services in terms of security, but features for free and home users are fairly limited. Therefore, while business and professional users will appreciate the high level of security that sendthisfile offers, those who are looking to upload files for casual use may wish to use a free service instead.

  • SendThisFile lets you send files with no size limit via email for free, while paid accounts offer many amenities and can be used to send and receive large files in a branded manner through a web site, for example.
    All accounts do have a six day pick-up time limit, though, and SendThisFile does incorporate secure transfer and storage, but no virus scanning.

    Secure File Sharing provides a good File Sharing service, to begin to use it you must access the official website https://www.sendthisfile.com and make the free registration, you can also subscribe using access through social networks ( Facebook, Linkedin, Google Plus), once you have registered at the site for the Free account (this allows you to use the product for 15 days as a trial). You will have 50GB encrypted bandwidth, the ability to use Filebox (now let's see what they are), an integrated plugin directly in Outlook, download notifications, sending to multiple recipients file.

    Pros :

    -The main strengths of SendThisFile that differentiate it from other competing services, in my opinion, are two: Filebox and Outlook Plugin.
    -The Plugin for Outlook requires an installation on your PC, once installed you will have the Tab SendThisFile directly in Outlook, to use it you'll have to obviously connect with your account, once connected you'll just have to send an email containing your attachment, and you can decide if you send it as a standard mail or whether to use the SendThisFile service.
    -You can also set security password on the file you are sending, you can decide whether you want to receive a notification when the user has received and downloaded your files, you can monitor the upload progress, and you can decide the maximum number of file downloads sent. A further special feature really useful to SendThisFile is to allow the user to obtain (inegrable into your sites) a FileBox.
    -This allows you to have a personalized area, protected by a password if you want it, where a user can upload the files for you, the process is really simple and allows both easier management of file transfer.
    -Share the customs area is very simple because once you have created a FileBox from your SendThisFile account provides you a link, this link may be forwarded to the user that you want to click on this, and he will be redirected directly to FileBox.
    -Once the user has completed uploading, you will be sent an email that warns you of the new available files, in the email we will have of course the link for the uploaded file.

    Cons : -The usability by the site is not very attractive.

    Sometimes you may need to send a big file to the other person. It is not possible to use email in this case because the message size is limited. You may use cloud services, but there is one more option — file sharing services. SendThisFile is worthy of mention here because there is no limit to file size here. You may send 5 or 10 GB — it doesn't matter. SendThisFile works as an email plug-in. When you need to attach the big file, you simply add it to the letter, and SendThisFile does the rest. The other way of using the service is more usual — the user may create the share link for the file, send it through the email or the instant messenger, and the recipients may download it from their browsers. But beware the bandwidth! SendThisFile provides limited bandwidth, so it does matter how many times your file was downloaded. There is no free plan (just trial), and the starter plan provides 25 GB of bandwidth for $4,95 a month. The other distinctive feature of the SendThisFile is the emphasis on security. The service uses 256-bit encryption on SSAE16 and SAS70 encryption for file transfers. It is also possible to protect files with the password to prevent unwanted downloads. The passwords are never saved on the remote server, and the sender has to pass it to the recipient. The file's download history is saved in the log, which can be accessed from the sender's account. It is possible to make all recipients to authorize before file downloading. Thus, it is easy to track who already downloaded the file.

    Pros :

    • No limit on file size.

    Cons :

    • No free plan.
    • Monthly bandwidth for sharing files is limited.
    • No folders sharing.
    • Does not sync files between devices.
    • Does not provide mobile apps.
    • No file versioning support.

    SendThisFile has been around for a while, and with competitors like WeTransfer around, as well as cloud storage solutions such as Google Drive and Dropbox, it is becoming more difficult for it to remain competitive. SendThisFile allows users to exchange large files, and its biggest selling point is that there is no file size limit imposed by the free version, unlike WeTransfer and other services. This is arguably the most important feature that SendThisFile contains, and for users wanting to share large files that are a few Gigabytes in size, and are not keen on paying for premium memberships to services such as WeTransfer, then SendThisFile might be their only option.

    Besides the huge advantage of being able to send large files for free with no limits, SendThisFile also brings a number of useful features to the table, such as the ability to send files from different devices running on numerous platforms, as well as applying password protection to the files. Furthermore, file encryption is also available; however this cannot be used in the free version, and one must upgrade to a premium account. SendThisFile also has a few problems and annoyances, such as the fact that bandwidth when uploading and downloading files on a free account, is throttled and shared amongst free users, which means that very slow speeds are experienced at times.

    Furthermore, SendThisFile has a very outdated interface and is full of bugs and glitches. When compared with WeTransfer, which is truly modern and works relatively flawlessly, SendThisFile starts to look less attractive. Besides this, SendThisFile does not offer version control and file history, there is no synchronisation across multiple devices, and there is also no virus scanning. Due to these reasons, unless the file that a user would like to send exceeds the maximum file size in WeTransfer and other services, then I would recommend looking elsewhere.

    Pros :

    • No size limit for files sent in the free version, unlike WeTransfer.
    • File encryption available in the premium version.
    • Supported on multiple devices.
    • Files can be password protected.

    Cons :

    • No virus scanning.
    • No file encryption in the free version.
    • An account must be created, unlike WeTransfer.
    • Uploading and downloading of files use throttled bandwidth for free users.
    • Outdated and buggy interface. - No syncing across devices.
    • No version control.
    • Files are only stored for a few days and can be removed without warning.
