The size limit of the attachments does not always allow large files to be sent by e-mail (unreduced holiday photos, video of the youngest child, etc.). WeTransfer, in its free version, allows to send up to 2 GB of files to a maximum of 3 recipients simultaneously. Its strong point? Its simplicity of use.
First advantage therefore, WeTransfer makes it possible to send large files to your recipient. The maximum size of the sending is limited to 2 Gb in the free version (and up to 10 Gb in the paid version). This is more than enough for a punctual use. There are many other solutions to transfer files, but WeTransfer has the double advantage of being very simple to use, as we will see, and of not requiring the creation of an account.
To get started, go to the WeTransferhome page at this address: https://www.wetransfer.com.
Firstly? You will have to agreeto the terms and conditions
The part we're interested in is on the left side. The first line allows you to select the files you want to send :
When you have finished choosing the files to download, you can enter up to 3 separate email addresses of recipients. You then enter your own email address to be notified when the recipient(s) have received the transfer link and proceeded to download the files to their computer(s).
You can also, if you wish, write a message to the recipient(s).
If you do not wish to provide a recipient email address, you can choose to use the download link that will be provided to you and that you will send yourself to whomever you wish
Then you will have to verify your email by inserting a code you receive by email
All you have to do is press the "Transfer" tab to start the download. Note that the files will be available to the recipients for a period of 7 days.
and you are done
Warning: the sent files are stored on the WeTransfer Cloud for 7 days and cannot be deleted by the sender at least in the free version. However, Wetransfer offers a deletion request procedure, under conditions. Moreover, data encryption is only available in the paid version. Therefore, avoid sending sensitive documents. It should also be noted that the recipient of several files sent simultaneously will receive them in the form of a zipped archive which he will have to decompresson receipt in order to be able to use them. Finally, the download time depends on the speed of your Internet connection and that of the recipients.
