File Shares are becoming more and more important as more of our data is handled through computers,
Here are 5 surprising File Share facts.
1. Some File Shares have Virtually No Limit
While you may need to pay in order to get this service, you can share literally huge files of 1gb or more on some File Shares.
2. There is Secured and Unsecured File Sharing
Secured means a website connects to your computer through the “https” protocol (the ‘s’ stands for secure.) If you’re downloading a sensitive file, especially if you’re using Wireless internet, you will want to make sure you use a provider that opts for this more expensive add-on.
3. There are File Shares Big and Small
With so many file sharing sites on the web, it’s easy to find one that’s perfect for your needs. You might want to share a picture or two, or maybe a large file, or perhaps a confidential excel file. Do your research and choose the right file sharing solution for you.
4. You can earn free hosting and even money by referring your friends
Many file sharing providers will offer rewards for referrals. Since so many people need to share files, this is a great way to get some free hosting or make some money. However, most file sharing companies are leaning to a free-hosting only model.
5. Some File Share site connect directly to your computer
Some sites, like DropBox, have software that you can install on your computer that creates a “virtual drive” where you can copy, cut, pase and delete files just like a normal drive. This is handy if you use file sharing extensively.
