Transfer Large Files
WeTransfer is a slick application which allows you to send large files to a friend or colleague, and which completely eliminates the process of sharing a file in Google Docs or Dropbox. The free version allows you to send files up to 2Gb in size. A paid version allows you to send files up to 20GB in size, and you can have a custom download page.
Boss works from home. Boss wants to have access to QuickBooks accounting, running on Windows. Boss is a Mac person. So, we have two problems…one of access to the QuickBooks data file, which is running on a dedicated server, and the cross-platform problem of running Quickbooks on a Mac. After talking this through (VPN?, Shared file on Google Drive?, Buy dedicated laptop for Boss?), remote access software comes to the rescue.
