This tutorial explains how to share large files with expiration time.
Yttr is a free online service that is used to share large files with expiration time. Expiration time can be set for 1 day, 4 days, or 12 days. Thus, your files can be downloaded by users until the expiration time. After the expiration time, uploaded files are deleted from servers automatically.
This service is useful to share large files of any type. However, upload limit per file is restricted to 300 MB. If this limit doesn’t bother you much, then this large file sharing service is very handy.
