Every email service has a size limit for attachments. Therefore, it becomes absolutely impossible to send large files via email.
The problem with these tools is that they’re primarily storage and/or collaborative platforms and not just for sending files. This means you have to upload your files to their servers for storage before you can send those files and you must have an account with them before you can upload files to their servers. The sent files will also remain on their servers till they’re deleted which means those files will clog your cloud storage and reduce the size available to store important files that you will like to retain.
Now, what if I just want to send a large file and I don’t want it retained anywhere? What if I don’t have an account with Google, Dropbox or OneDrive?
