Pando makes sending large files by email no more a difficult task. Install Pando app, browse your desired file, attach it to your email and Pando attaches a .pando file along with it and that’s all. When the recipient opens your attachment it kicks Pando app into action and it gets your attachment for the recipient.  You will get your job done for no cost.

As you select your file to share, a copy of the file is uploaded to Pando’s secure server and it keeps your file for 2 weeks allowing you to download anytime within this period. Pando lets you upload up to 1GB for free.

Pando will provide service with Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail and AIM or you can post your attachment to your blog as well.

If you are not a Windows or Mac user or if you can’t download and install Pando; then it’s difficult for you to make use of Pando software as Pando doesn’t offer a web interface. For all others, Pando is probably one of the easiest free software to send large files by email. Try Pando software.

    There is so much free software and services for transmitting large files. But WHY?

    This is an area where there will be a lot of companies going out of business or consolidating/merging.

    Unless you actually created the file yourself, most large files are already hosted somewhere on the web. Just send the URL and be done with it.

    Also, while some web email services will allow 20mb emails, most POP3 based emails are still 5mb or less.

      I’m afraid Jojo is talking absolute utter rubbish – I can only assume they live in a cave & are they completely out of touch with the modern world.

      Even mobile phones now come complete with 16GB memory, so how on earth can you say that we don’t need large file transfer systems?!!!

      I am a designer & routinely create or receive files in excess of a gigabyte that are private and often need to be sent to clients or colleagues discreetly.

      My son is studying 3D design – how do you propose he sends files to his fellow students?

      How do you propose my DJ friend sends a mix he’s created to our friend who’s travelling across Asia, or I send an edited DivX film of our New Years Eve Party to them?

      I could go on…

      Sufficed to say, if there’s just one system I can use to send them all, I will – I don’t have time to sniff around finding 101 different sites to send them all!

  • Another favorite option is File Apartment (http://www.fileapartment.com). Easy to use, no software to download or registration, up to 1 GB, free option, safe, and secure.

    • @Manish: There was just one reason that we had left FileApartment out of our review: the free download is available for just 1 day, and 1 download. So, if I send a file to someone today, but he/she does not downloads it today but tries tomorrow, the file will no longer be available. That’s not a good user experience.

  • Another is http://www.1fichier.com
    Support files up to 10Gb,
    Files expires after 60 days without downloads
    FTP & remote upload supported also

  • How about adding a client portal to your own site? I think that would certainly boost your business credibility. Check out The Client Space: it’s a complete client portal for small businesses. You can upload material for your clients to review, or clients can easily upload to their “space.” There’s more explained on the tour page at http://www.theclientspace.com/tour

    • @Bien: This looks like a good concept, but the free option gives only 10 MB of space. That is lesser than what most of the email clients provide.

  • MDUB28

    Pando has the only free option on the list. The rest are not FREE, they’re FREE TRIALS. You eventually have to pay.
