WeTransfer is the most popular service for sharing large files with our contacts. It is a tool that allows you to share files up to 2 GB in its free version and up to 20 GB in the paid version. Today we propose 10 alternatives that you can use if the free WeTransfer plan falls short, or stops working for some reason.
First, let’s look at services that also allow you to store files in the cloud to be able to access them from anywhere.
Mega has become one of the most used services for sharing files on the Internet. Its free version offers you 50 GB of storage space, and you can share large files without problems. Mega even allows you to encrypt files with a password so that your content is more protected.
If you need more, you can opt for several payment plans with a starting price of 5 euros per month, with a storage capacity of 200 GB and 1 TB of data transfer.
Google Drive is another excellent option to share your large files. The free version offers 15 GB of storage, and you can share the content with anyone you want. One advantage is that it has full integration with other services of the company, such as Google Docs.
If you fall short you can use the Google One service that gives you access to several plans with storage capacities of 100 GB, 200 GB and 2 TB for prices starting at 20 euros per year or 2 euros per month.
Dropbox is still one of the pioneers in file-sharing services over the Internet. I was using it in my student years at the university and it is great for sharing documents and all kinds of files with classmates.
Its free version offers 3 GB, a very limited amount but it can be valid if you do not need to keep the files in the cloud once your contacts have received and downloaded them. Your payment plans start at 2 TB of space for 12 euros per month.
OneDrive is Microsoft’s cloud storage service that you can also use to share files. The free version offers you 5 GB of space so you can store and share your most important files.

We continue with Send Anywhere, a tool that is well known and allows us to send files up to 10 GB without paying a single cent. The negative point is that the service shows some ads, and the files expire in just 48 hours, compared to 72 hours in the previous two.
