The S4ve.as Web Site TRULY removes the complexity and limits to sharing or sending files to anyone! S4ve.as is PERFECT for those times when you need to send someone a quick file or photo. Its ease of use ALSO makes it the perfect tool when you need someone to send YOU a file.
A couple of things about the free S4ve.As Service:
- Although there is no size limit, the S4ve.As service will delete all files 24 hours after upload
- Anyone who has the link can download the file so be sure to Encrypt sensitive/confidential data before uploading it
- If you want to send Multiple files (and save upload/download time,) just compress them using 7-Zip before uploading
Ok, enough talk! Here’s a How-To Step-by-Step for Sending a file using S4ve.As
1. Start by Browsing to S4ve.as using your preferred browser and Click the Select File Button
2. Browse to the file you want to Send, Select the file and Click Open
3. Verify the file selected and Click Upload
4. Copy the bit.ly Link and Email it to anyone you want to have access to the file
Tip: Add a + to the end of the bit.ly URL to get stats on who’s viewed your link
Yes, it’s the EASE of use, unlimited file size, and no registration required that makes S4ve.As my favorite file transfer/sharing tool to date. Add to that the bit.ly integration and you have one VERY VERY GROOVY SERVICE INDEED!

Excellent tip. Never heard of these guys before. The domain name .as threw me for a loop at first.
To answer your question, i’ve always used yousendit.com it’s also free however limited to just a few hundred megs. usually that’s good enough for what I’m doing.
Ah yeah, YouSendit.com is a great service. We use it at our Corp. however we have the Pay version. With it’s integration with Outlook and other Enterprise features, it’s probably one of the best ways out there for delivering large files to your customers or having a customer send you a file. Really helps get around the 10Meg (ish) email limit out there.
Have you ever tried out the Enterprise Product for YouSendIt?
BTW – I’ve used the CORP edition of YouSendit.com. It’s great but a little expensive. I think we paid $10 per user per month where I used to work and the ppl who used it only used it maybe 1-2x a week. Not worth it probably. s4ve.as would be a much better FREE option probably.
I keep it simple and just use my microsoft skydrive when I need to share something. for everything else (regular sharing) I use folershare and gmail. :)
Thanks for the lead w/s4ve.as I think this will make it easier for ppl to send stuff to me.
I would LOVE to take a look at this but it’s been down ever since you posted this article. Just tried it again today and here’s what is says: “We’re making some changes to our system, but we’ll be back up soon. Thanks for your patience!”.
It seems they are back up. Charging 99 cents an upload now.
According to their FAQs: “Simply put, our popularity grew much faster than expected and so did the costs of running a free service. We remain committed to providing a simple and convenient service, and with your support, we look forward to making file sharing even easier.”
Sorry…. I pay ~$7 per month per use with yousendit.com and I get unlimited uploads, downloads plus a ton of other services like email integration etc.. For $1 an upload I'm fairly certain the service will die. It's to high a price point. Perhaps 5 cents per upload…? Something that wouldn't be so noticeable.
That's to bad, it was a great concept.
My spouse and i got joyful Chris could complete his research from the ideas he got using your web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply possibly be freely giving solutions many others might have been trying to sell. We keep in mind we need the website owner to thank for that. All the illustrations you’ve made, the simple web site navigation, the relationships you will help to promote – it’s mostly awesome, and it’s really making our son in addition to us know that this subject is awesome, which is truly essential. Thanks for the whole lot!
