If you need to send someone a large enough file, then you may encounter a problem that, for example, by e-mail this will not work. In addition, some online file transfer services provide these services for a fee, in the same article we will discuss how to do this for free and without registration.
Another fairly obvious way – the use of cloud storage, such as Yandex Drive, Google Drive and others. You upload the file to your cloud storage and give access to this file to the right person. This is a simple and reliable way, but it may be that you have no free space or desire to register and deal with this method to send a file in a couple of gigabytes once. In this case, you can use the following services to send large files.
Firefox Send is a free, secure file transfer service over the Internet from Mozilla. Of the benefits – a developer with an excellent reputation, security, ease of use, the Russian language.
The disadvantage is the file size restrictions: on the service page it is recommended to send files of no more than 1 GB, in fact “prolazit” and more, but when trying to send something more than 2.1 GB, it is reported that the file is too large.
Details on the service and how to use it in a separate material: Sending large files over the Internet to Firefox Send .
File Pizza file transfer service does not work like the others listed in this review: when using it, no files are stored anywhere: the transfer goes directly from your computer to another computer.
This has advantages: there is no limit on the size of the file being transferred, and disadvantages: while the file is being downloaded on another computer, you should not disconnect from the Internet and close the window with the File Pizza website.
By itself, the use of the service is as follows:
- Drag the file to the window at https://file.pizza/ or click “Select File” and specify the file location.
- They passed the received link to the person who should download the file.
- They waited for him to download your file without closing the File Pizza window on his computer.
Keep in mind that when you transfer a file, your Internet channel will be used to send data.
Filemail service allows you to send large files and folders (up to 50 GB in size) for free by e-mail (a link comes in) or as a simple link, available in Russian.Sending is available not only through the browser on the official website https://www.filemail.com/ , but also through the Filemail program for Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS.
Send Anywhere is a popular service for sending large files (for free – up to 50 GB), which can be used both online and with applications for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, iOS. Moreover, the service is integrated into some file managers, for example, in X-Plore on Android.
When using Send AnyWhere without registering and downloading applications, sending files looks like this:
- Go to the official site https://send-anywhere.com/ and on the left, in the Send section add the necessary files.
- Click the Send button and send the received code to the recipient.
- The recipient must go to the same site and enter the code in the Input key field in the Receive section.

Tresorit Send is an online service for transferring large files over the Internet (up to 5 GB) with encryption. The use is simple: add your files (more than 1 can be) by dragging or pointing them using the “Open” dialog box, specify your E-mail, if you wish – the password to open the link (point Protect link with password)
Click Create Secure Link and transfer the generated link to the addressee. Official site of the service: https://send.tresorit.com/
With the help of the service justbeamit.com you can send files directly to another person without any registration or long waiting. Just go to this site and drag the file onto the page. The file will not be uploaded to the server, as the service implies a direct transfer.
After you have dragged the file, the “Create Link” button will appear on the page, click it and you will see the link that you need to transfer to the addressee. To transfer the file, the page “on your part” must be open, and the Internet is connected. When the file is uploaded, you will see a progress bar. Please note, the link works only once and for one recipient.
Another very simple and free file transfer service. Unlike the previous one, it does not require you to be online until the recipient completely downloads the file. Free file transfer is limited to 5 GB, which, in general, in most cases will be enough.
The process of sending a file is as follows: you upload a file from your computer to FileDropper, get a link to download and send it to the person who needs to transfer the file.
The service is similar to the previous one and its use occurs in the same way: downloading a file, getting a link, sending a link to the right person. The maximum file size sent via File Convoy is 4 gigabytes.
There is one additional option: you can specify how long the file will be available for download. After this period, get the file on your link will not work.
Of course, the choice of such services and ways to send files is not limited to those listed above, but in many ways they copy each other. In the same list, I tried to bring proven, not oversaturated with advertising and properly working.
