What freeware do you use for sharing large files with colleagues?

Drop Box is a popular service that provides 2GB of free online file storage that you can access from any computer and most mobile devices. You can also sync it across multiple computers.  Learn more about Drop Box in the video below.



Here are some other free file sharing sites you also might like-- 


DROPitTOme--works with https://www.dropbox.com/Drop Box to allow people to upload files to your Drop Box account without giving them access to the contents of your Drop Box account.


Uploader Box--shares large files.  Just upload a file from your computer, enter your email address, and enter the email addresses of your intended recipients. Once your file is uploaded, Uploader Box gives you two urls. One is for sharing your file and the other is for deleting your file.


File Dropper--shares files up to 5GB.  Upload your file and File Dropper assigns it a unique URL that you can then share with anyone.


Minus (Min.us)--allows you to drag a file onto the blank Minus canvas. Then Minus will provide you with a link to share your file with others. Minus will also generate a HTML code that you can use to embed your file into a blog or website. Those people with whom you share the url for your file can also download your file.


File Stork--offers you a place to make an individual file request by sending an email to someone or to create a "stand alone" request which will allow you to post an upload link on your blog or website. People can then use that link to upload a file to your Dropbox where you can view it and download it.  File Stork allows you to specify an upload password and which types of files you will allow to be uploaded to your Dropbox.  Anyone uploading files to your Dropbox through File Stork does not have access to any of the files in your account.   


Which one(s) do you use or like best?  What other free sites have you found for file sharing?
