    Inexpensive file sharing service...recommendations?

    My computer isn't on 24/7 (when it is on, my broadband connection is dead slow), so am looking for an inexpensive, cloud-based file sharing solution for files that are too big to email.

    I don't need much storage. I'd simply like to be able to upload the occasional video or music file to the cloud, and send a download link to friends.

    Can anyone here recommend a service that would fit the bill? Thanks kindly.

    Google [My]Drive is also another good choice. Just email the google drive directory to the parties, no need to send an email to each person for each uploaded file.

    And then, of course, there is OneDrive, as well.

    A couple of years ago I opened DropBox, Google Drive and OneDrive free 'cloud' accounts. For many reason - primarily ease of use and dislike of advertisng popups from respective client software - I now just use Google Drive.

    It's worked for me and my family for years to share photos, videos, music, etc.

    If I ever come close to Google Drive's 15 GB free storage limit then I'll try an internet-connected HD like Western Digital's MyCloud.

    Hope this helps...

    Much obliged, Rui and Rick.

    Storage capacity really isn't important, since I'm only looking for a temporary holding pen for files too big to send via email. I'll likely delete the file from the cloud once the recipient has downloaded it.

    Again, thank you all.
