Recently in my new job i had to send very important large files ? What is the safest way because this data shouldn't fall into wrong hands ?

For me large files are over 100mb that can't be sent with mail.

The problem is not exactly the size but the method and security. Right now i use two sites to do that :
First is a site where i upload my file and get link for download: http://tranzit.dir.bg/.
Second i use this one to encrypt the link and set password for the recipient for security reasons : https://urlcrypt.to/
That the way i do it now but i am not sure if that is the best way.

The problem is that i am in my office and i have to send large .dwg files to other engineers working on the project. Some of them work from home and on top of that they are 70+ years old and the use only Autocad and some basic mail client. So you see VPN tunnel here just can't happen. As till now i found that sending them links to download is the easiest way. If someone can suggest me something else. As for the encryption i do it just for safety reasons.

Thank you for the suggestion but 100-200mb file can't be reduced to 10mb :( Or i don't know how. Some mails have that limitation still.

Hi

WinZip & 7-zip provides compression AND encryption and can contain several files

Winzip costs money but 7-Zip is free

I was suggesting encrypting before you upload the file to the cloud or similar resourse
Then the recipient uses the same program to decrypt the file after dowloading.

[The maximum file size for email systems varies a lot, at my place of work the maximum file size is 20MB]

regards
Mike Barnes

So you think it's better to encrypt the file rather than the link ?

yes, i've discussed that with people from forums with much more knowledge and the result is that encrypting before sending the files and password securing them is maybe the best option.
