Question: What is your favorite (low cost) file-sharing service that can be used easily by an entire team?
"We use Google Drive for file sharing among our team and also clients. It is free till 15 GB for each user and get 100 GB is only $2 a month. We can share any type of file and also create Google office files and share. It comes with apps for desktops and smartphones that we can download and synch from there. It maintains the versions. Also, many people have Google accounts, so we can share easily."
"BitTorrent Sync is the best file sharing solution we've used by a mile. For most use cases, it is completely free no matter how many users you have. It has higher security because it never gets stored in the "cloud." It's also fast, especially within a local network, precisely because it goes directly between the users rather than uploading and then downloading on other cloud services."
"People think of Slack as a chat, but it's a lot more than that. It's a perfect solution for a remote-working and mobile-friendly team to search, share and store files that need to be ready at a moment's notice."
A Shared Server
"All of our computers are connected and have a shared folder via Wi-Fi. This method is very low-cost and secure. "
"We have a unique Hightail upload link that makes it easy for employees and clients to send bulk files all at once, without dealing with multiple emails. Since our business heavily relies on receiving photo and video content from clients, Hightail has made our lives much easier."
"I love Google Drive for many things, but for sharing it doesn't always work right. Wetransfer.com is my go-to solution for quick, free and painless sharing for anything up to 2 GB. You don't even need an account to send anything, and I've used it at least 200 times over the years."
"The available SaaS file-sharing services aren't always a great fit: they have limited features, aren't easily customized and security is a coin toss. OwnCloud is a self-hosted file-sharing and collaboration solution with great encryption. It's hosted on your own servers, in a data center or in the cloud. The major benefit is that your IT department has full control over where and how data is stored."
"If you're already a Salesforce customer then you may be familiar with Chatter, what we describe as our internal social network. We communicate in department groups and often share relevant information — such as training material or marketing collateral — by posting it directly to the group. Chatter shows a PDF preview of uploaded files and allows people to like, comment and download a copy."
"If you have a lot of files to share but not a huge budget, MediaFire is a great choice for you and your company. There is no limit on storage space and the interface is extremely easy to work with and show to your teams. There is no limit on how many users can dial in to this tool, and it is a great space for team members to communicate, share files, bounce ideas back and forth and more."
