Are you now looking for upload or share large files over Internet? then you have two options– Either simply attach the files to an email message to recipe or, if the files are too large for an email option, you can upload them to an on-line storage service and then  share the download links with the recipient.There are so many free Internet services that let you share large files without even a $0.1 .

Option 1: Share Large Files over Email

Google's Gmail service do not allow you to send files larger than 25 MB, but on the contrary Hotmail option let you send email messages as large as 10 GB. When you use Hotmail service the maximum size of an individual file that you can attach to an Hotmail message is only 50 MB.

Suppose your data is more than 50 MB use file-splitting utility like HJ-Split to break the file into smaller chunks. Now attach them all to a single message and can send. The recipient can then join these chunks without any external programs to restore the original file.

Option 2: Share Large Files without Email

When you share larger files over internet programs (including Gmail,Yahoo) will reject incoming messages that have big attachments. So if you are sending a bulky file via email, the better option is Hotmail, but the recipients also have an account on Hotmail as well.

The best option for sharing bulky file is Dropbox. You can either install the Dropbox in your (Windows, Mac or Linux) desktop, or you can directly upload files to Dropbox after making an account. For Free users the maximum space  allotted is 2 GB with single file of 300 MB is allowed to send at a time. Premium members get other featured benefits.

The second option is Google Doc, allow you to send files of any format with having size upto 25 MB. You have 1 GB of free storage space for storing all the non-Office files on Google Docs but paid member can buy more space with suitable price tagRemember that if the connection breaks while your recipient is still trying to download your file, they will have to resume the download from scratch. 

Use SkyDrive as third option. The service offers 25 GB of free online storage, with individual files limited to 50 MB. When you need to send big file, split them into chunks of 50 MB each and then upload them all to a single folder on SkyDrive. The recipient can now download the entire folder as a ZIP file or, if he’s on a breaking connection, he can download files one by one and then join them all at his end. Use WinRAR for unzipping the file.

Option 3. Share Files without Registration

You can also get online storage services without even registration. Use YouSendIt or WeTransfer, if the file size is larger. Just enter the recipe's email Id and upload your file via browser. WeTransfer lets you send files up to 2 GB in size while the maximum allowed limit is 100 MB in the case of YouSendIt .
