4 Ways to Send Files Without Uploading to Server-Send Files Directly

Sometimes we may need to send the files to our friends without being uploading the files to server. Because that files may contains some important details or you don’t want to share that file information with anyone. Of course, we can compress and password protect the file and send to another user but you don’t want to take risk on it. We can simple upload our files to file sharing sites and we can share that, but those files are accessible to file sharing company and you don’t want to share those important files with anyone except the receiver.

So here is 4 best ways to share your files without uploading to any server and you can send files directly to the recipient. All the services what we have listed here are totally free to use. Most the these services supports large file transfers too.


isendr is a new company which can help you to send files directly to the recipient. With this service we can password protect the files what we are sending to add an extra layer of protection. To send and receive files both the sender and recipient must be online because the files is going directly to the receiver without being uploading to the server.

No registration required to start using this service and it’s still in beta.

I personally use FilesDIRECT to send large files and store them online: you can send 2GB files even with the free plan, storage starts at 2GB, there’s no software to install AND it includes 128-bit SSL encryption on all transfers. And unlike most similar services, this one’s been around for nearly a decade.

The problems with all you have listed are: 1. you can send only one file at a time. and 2. the moment you or the receiver closes the browser, or connection is interrupted, you have to start all over again.
The best one for direct transfers is Binfer. You can send hundreds of files of any size with a simple drag and drop. Binfer will manage the transfers with auto resumes, encryption, notifications etc. You or the receiver can shutdown the computer and resume from anywhere and anytime, and it will pick up right where it stopped. It even has a private chat. Check it out: http://www.binfer.com

I have something unique to present in this topic. Though, all of the mentioned services claim not uploading files on the server it is not really correct. These services uses there own server for relaing files over it. So, the files are piped over these servers. The only one true sevice in inet who do direct transmission peer-to-peer is click2copy. It uses special algorithm to traverse through your NAT / firewall. Try it. It is the most interesting service in this category.
