Many share files outside of TTD and other sites.

It seems that many people are now using WeTransfer instead of Dropbox.

What are your thoughts on each, is there really a difference ?

Re: Filesharing

Both work fine but often slow.

Your control of the sharing is an advantage depending on what you are sharing...

wetransfer for me. Never liked Dropbox, personally.

Re: Filesharing

I don't like dropbox (don't want to install something to get files from you)
I don't like wetransfer (don't like the short time for file life hosting there)
I don't like Mega (sometimes files hang and never finish downloading)
I don't like filefactory (had problems uploading once...)

I like to send people files via public "private" torrents. My upload bandwidth sucks, but I also keep seeding whatever I download in perpetuity forever if I can. If I have to upload to a file host site, I have to shut down uTorrent, and I don't like to do that. So, I prefer incorporating the 1 : 1 private shares I need to do with the torrents I'm already upping. I make a torrent file with DHT and peer exchange and all that kind of stuff enabled, and put in a few public trackers, and send my friend the torrent file in an email or whatever. They start it, I seed it, they download it. Easy. no random file host to bounce your files off of! haha

So, try that!

Re: Filesharing is also a good site. It's free, doesn't require any sign up, and you can send huge files (I received a single 26 GB file with filemail).
