WeTransfer is the most popular service for sharing large files with our contacts. It is a tool that allows you to share files of 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 WeTransfer free plan falls short , or stops working for some reason such as a problem on their servers.
First, let's look at services that, in addition to sharing, allow files to be stored in the cloud so that they can be accessed from anywhere.
Mega has become one of the most widely used file sharing services 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 for sharing your large files. The free version offers 15 GB of storage, and you can share the content with anyone you want. An advantage is that it has full integration with other company services , such as Google Docs.
If it falls short, you can hire the Google One service that gives you access to several plans with storage capacities of 100 GB, 200 GB and 2 TB for prices that start at 20 euros per year or 2 euros per month.
Dropbox was one of the pioneers in file sharing services over the Internet . I have been using it in my student years at 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 which may be valid if you don't need to keep the files in the cloud once your contacts have received and downloaded them. Their 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 gives you 5GB of space so you can store and share your most important files.

We continue with Send Anywhere, a tool that is well known and that allows us to send files up to 10 GB without having to pay a single penny . A 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.
