It’s part of daily life for us to be uploading heavy files up to the web. Anything from a 200MB flash video recording of a speech to high definition corporate videos weighing in at a few gigabytes. Not so long ago files of this size would have necessitated physical delivery on a disk or remote drive. For over five years now we’ve been moving this type of file around effortlessly, and in the spirit of sharing a ‘good thing’ I thought the service we’ve been using worthy of a plug here.
That service is called YouSendIt. To date the facilities they provide have been faultless and highly efficient. A number of innovative applications make it readily usable from a number of common software packages and the ability to add branding (paid version) gives the interface a polished and professional look.
My favourite bit is the YouSendIt Express desktop application. Using this, if you lose your Internet connection or have to shut down for some reason, when you connect again the upload will resume from the point of interruption – a great usability bonus!
We tried a few other services before settling on this one, but none of them we found matched up to the all round quality that YouSendIt provides.
Thank you YouSendIt!
