    How to create link to a large file in Outlook 2013

    I m trying to create a link in Outlook 2013 for a file which is bigger than the sever allows. When trying to use "Share", the e-mail recipient has access to everything in the folder and I want to restrict his access to the one file. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    My operating system is a 64 bit Windows 8.1.

    Create a new folder for that one file and grant access there?

    Or you may be able to increase or remove the attachment size restriction, depending on the type of email account you're using:

    "Attachment size exceeds the allowable limit" error when you add a large attachment to an email message in Outlook 2013

    If not, upload it to OneDrive and send a shared link: Share files and folders and change permissions

    Do be aware that just because you allow a large attachment to be sent does not mean that the receiving system will allow that large attachment to be received.
    Most systems do have size limits and that is good because email was never designed for this plus everyone sending huge attachments over email will help to cog the internet pathways and make internet usage in general slower.
    Much better to user something like Hightail for those needs.
