SendFile (beta) is a useful software that helps to share files on same network. You won’t require any online file sharing service or flash drive to share files, if working on same network. Just add files on its interface, give the file code to your friend, and he/she will be able to download that file to his/her PC. This could be a useful software for employees working together in same office connected either with LAN or wireless network.
Multiple files can be downloaded together and file size also doesn’t matter.
In above screenshot, you could see interface of this file sharing software where all task can be performed for sharing files.

How To Share Files Using SendFile?
To share files with this freeware, download a zip file (around 3 MB in size) and extract in a folder. I have placed its download link at the end of this review. After extracting the zip file, you can double-click on sendfile application to open its interface.
One of the important thing to share files is that you need to set IP address of your PC. And make sure that you and your friend is connected with same network. Use settings button to enter IP address from list of possible IP addresses or enter it manually. To make it work perfectly, it is good to enter IP address manually at required field. If you don’t know your IP address, then you can get it from Command prompt window by typing ‘ipconfig‘ and pressing enter.
Now you can add files from your PC to its interface that you want to share with your colleagues. Just use Share button, select files, and add them. For each file, a unique code will be generated, which you can copy to clipboard, and paste it on a text editor.
Files codes you can give to required person. Now to download files, the person just needs to enter codes one by one, and select destination locations for each individual file. Batch download can be performed for shared files by multiple users together, which makes it interesting to use.
Similarly, you can download files shared by your friend. Just this application is required on all PCs.
SendFile works quite fine and is useful for sharing files in batch on same network. But this file code option should be improved as generated code is quite complex, and user have to send it through a text file. It should let user select a code or some password protection instead of file code should be included.
