Re: Better than drop box? Anyone

I have a Dropbox account but the main one use is Google Drive at 130gb @ 4 per month. All the cloud services should have around the same upload speed and it would be your choice of ISP that is more relevant. I got a higher upload speed by switching from BT to Sky as the latter was about 3x faster at that time.

Why not just upload overnight or from an unattended laptop if your resources and time are being tied up.

Also, some internet cafes have upload speeds vastly higher than any you can get at a home office. You could just go into one of those with a laptop or even leave them a usb stick to do it for you if you trust them with a particular cloud account of yours.

Copy.com is another cloud service but regular account gives you 15GB for free vs 2GB for Dropbox. It works well. Sign up with this link & you will get an extra 5GB for a total of 20GB free (forever apparently)

https://copy.com?r=7Cadj6

Full disclosure I too get an extra 5GB if you sign up with my referral link above.

Vimeo, password protect it. Its web optimized so faster streaming than sending it.

Or if you do want to send it then we use www.wetransfer.com

Re: Better than drop box? Anyone

Vimeo only allows your client to download an original high definition file if you have a Vimeo Pro account. Which costs USD 199 per year.

I think the client can download the original file if they join Vimeo but that is not something you can ask a blue chip client to do without looking a bit amateur.

Personally, I have a Vimeo Plus account which doesn't allow me to share an original 1920 x 1080 file with a client.

But it seems easy enough to do that via my existing Google Drive account. So that is what I will do.
