Have you ever wanted to send a file to a friend? Too large attachment for an e-mail? Or just wanted to transfer files without a flash drive? Files Over Miles is the perfect solution if you answered "yes" to any of the above questions. The process is simple and easy. All you have to do is browse for the file you want to send, pass the special link to another computer, and transfer the file! Very simple to use and best of all, its free. There are no forms or sign-ups needed or any catch. Wondering about the size limit? Well the size limit is based on your computer, according to their FAQ:
Unfortunately, there is a limit on the maximum size of a file that can be sent between a sender and a recipient. This limit is only because FilesOverMiles is based on Adobe Flash Player that requires that the uploaded or downloaded file is stored entirely in the computer memory (RAM).As a consequence, a sender may upload only those files that are smaller than the memory available on his/her computer. In turn, a recipient may download only those files that are smaller than half of the memory available on his/her computer.Hopefully, upcoming versions of Adobe Flash Player will remove this limitation and then FilesOverMiles will have no file size limits.
Files Over Miles is also very safe. I use it all the time knowing that my files are not looked at, or copied. The files are directly transfered to the recipient's computer. There are no loop holes or tricks. By sending files directly to the other computer, you can ensure speedy delivery and safe travels to your files.
FilesOverMiles uses 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
I can say personally that this site is safe and seure, Its reliable and has been featured on sites such as Lifehacker and MakeUseOf. What are you waiting for? Go send some files over miles!
