Takeafile is a free online P2P file sharing service that has some amazing features. Whereas other similar sites let you share maximum 1GB or 2GB sized file at a time, this website supports unlimited file size. Any type of file with any size can be shared with anyone you want. Also, the sharing process remains between sender and receiver only. The files are transferred in real-time between sender and receiver; so, as the file is being uploaded from your end, the receiver can simultaneously download the file. No third party tool or server stores your files. Moreover, you can share files on different networks. So, even if your friend or colleague is miles away from you, you both can share large files with each other easily over P2P.
To share files, you don’t have to create any free, trial/paid account. So, multiple benefits are provided by this website. You only need to take care that browser or tab should not be closed. Otherwise, the file transfer process will interrupt and you have to start from the beginning. However, there is something more. During my testing, the file transfer process stopped/failed when I or other user switched to some other tab. I’m not sure if this is a bug or was trouble with me only. So, this is something you have to be aware of. Rest of the features are really good.
Above you can see the file transfer process with multiple users.
Note: Currently the site works with Firefox and Google Chrome only.
Using This Free Online P2P File Sharing Website:
Peer to peer file sharing is really simple with this website. All you need to do is access the homepage and drop a file on its interface. Immediately, a file sharing URL will be generated. You can copy that URL or directly sent to someone using e-mail option.
When the receiver will open the URL, then file transfer process will begin. Now you both have to take care that browser and tab must not be closed during the file transfer process. The download progress depends on the Internet connections of sender and receiver.
If someone else will open the same URL, he/she will also be able to get that file. However, if multiple users try to access the same file, then it will affect the file transfer speed.
I have come across many online large file sharing sites. However, the feature to share the file of any size is unique. The sharing process is also very simple.
