Sending large files

You have a file that's too large to send via email, maybe it's several GB in size. How can you send this, hopefully free?

Note, I don not guarantee the accuracy of this information as it changes over time.

Notes

  • 6/25/2023. Transferred files using both TransferNow and TransferXL. I found TransferXL was faster. TransferNow is having trouble uploading the 49MB of 35 files for some unknown reason.
  • See also https://github.com/timvisee/send-instances/#instances for other send possibilities (I did not test these)
