Dropbox? :)

http://www.dropbox.com/

Just use the public folder and send them a link – simple and (fairly) private

I use Dropbox for most big file shares… but https://www.yousendit.com/ can be a nice tool for one-off files as well as it shows up directly in the recipients inbox – and it doesn’t require the other person to download/install anything :) Just don’t pay for the premium service if you don’t need it and I’m pretty sure it’s still 100% free unless they’ve changed up their biz model.

Just for the record – when using your public folder for sharing, the client won’t need to install anything to be able to download the file from Dropbox either. You just send them the link and they can download the file. :)

But yeah, yousendit is awesome too!

wetransfer.com is the best I’ve used so far. And it’s free.

I use Ge.tt. It’s great! You can share the link when you’re still uploading the file, and they can download it at the same time.

Yes, as long as your upload has completed before you go off-line :)
