I’m in a group that needs to have certain files. In the past, we kept losing things if we sent them out via email (people would delete an email with the file and then need it later). It wasn’t that organized.
We tried SkyDrive…but many of the people had trouble with it. (Most aren’t computer-literate.) We had some of the things private (partly since they were copyright and we only had licenses to share among us). So each member had to sign up for an account…(and there were many problems)
Also, some of the other people with the files couldn’t figure out how to post them (since SkyDrive had some confusing other features and all).
So I want: A free (or cheap) service that lets multiple people easily post files, and others can privately few them with a special link or something (or maybe a password…but it shouldn’t be anything harder like signing up for an account).
about the files… how big are they?
if they’re considerably small (<20mb?) , how about making a group email account (yahoo perhaps?), send the files as attachments to it, & share the email account user id & password to your groups :-La
Opera Unite maybe? Then only send the password to your most trusted friends, create a My Unite Files on your computer and throw everything you may want to share with others in there and nowhere else.
The whole point is not to have to email files to people each time I add new ones, but just email them the link to the folder so they can check themselves! 88) (Because keeping track of the emails can be hard).
