So, you want to send large files over the Internet, but there are only two options available, either send it as an attachment via email or upload it on a web hosting service, but sadly you can only upload files up to 20-25 MB as an attachments on e-mails, and web hosting services aren’t convenient too. Ever imagined to send files directly to your friends, without uploading them? Here’s how you can do the same.
