Secure big file service ?
« on: October 23, 2010, 11:03:00 PM »
Please recommend a big file transfer service(free or paid) that can help me do this:

I need to get large files ,eg 100-200MB max from an associate in Europe(I am in Asia).

I need to own the account & control their access to it eg by give them a username/pwd, valid for a limited time period etc.   Files must be virus scanned (can pay for this).

In short I look for a service (free or paid) that allows others to upload my account, so I can retrieve the files later

Thanks for all ideas !

The best thing I can think of right off is to talk to your ISP about setting up an FTP space.
You would control all security aspects and file size shouldn't be a problem.

My ISP refused to allow me any paid ftp service, and I see that most file hosters only allow you to share files that you yourself upload with others via shared folders/access controls, not vice versa.

GoDaddy has inexpensive services and you can get SSL there.

Most upload sites have paid services. RapidShare is one of the largest, so I'd check them out and see if they meet your needs.
