Instantly Send or Share Large File Collections with Anyone: Minbox

Robin Good's insight:

Minbox is a new web app (dedicated app available for Macs) which allows you to send or share files of any kind and size to anyone in a fraction of the time that it would take to transfer them by other means.

Not only.

Minbox let's you also create separate collections of files that you can upload and share with anyone you want.

Uploaded files can be sent directly to anyone email, shared via a link, commented, downloaded and you can also add additional files to any existing collection at any time.

A PRO version allows you to password protect files, decide when they expire, find out where your files are being viewed and downloaded from, and more.

There are no limits to the number of files you can transfer nor to the maximum file size of each.

Extremely handy and fast file sharing service, allowing easy uploading and sharing of huge files without bombarding you with annoying ads, malware or other intrusive promotions.

Free to use.

Like WeTransfer X2: GetaLink Allows You To Send 4GB Files to Anyone for Free

Like WeTransfer X2: GetaLink Allows You To Send 4GB Files to Anyone for Free | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

If you like the free large-file sending service WeTransfer, you'll probably like also GetaLink, a new web app which looks exactly like WeTransfer, but which allows you to send files up to 4GB in size.

N.B.: The files you send are stored on the server only 3 days (instead of 7 for WeTransfer) and only 1 person can download the file you have sent (20 emails for WeTransfer and unlimited downloads). 

A useful service with a familiar interface to send large files to anyone.

Free to use.

A Decentralized Secure P2P File-Sharing, Chat and Discussion Network: RetroShare

A Decentralized Secure P2P File-Sharing, Chat and Discussion Network: RetroShare | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

RetroShare is a cross-platform, open-source, trusted and distributed P2P communication software and social sharing network.

Retroshare allows you to chat and share files of any size with your friends and family, using a web-of-trust to authenticate peers and OpenSSL to encrypt all communication.

RetroShare provides filesharing, chat, messages, forums and channels. Other key features include:

  • Serverless, completely decentralised
  • Multiple simultaneous downloads / uploads
  • Search Friends
  • Messages
  • Forums
  • Channels
  • Voice over IP
  • Instant messaging
  • Groupchat
  • GnuPG Authentication
  • OpenSSL Encryption
  • adding downloads via website links
  • Plugins support
  • UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding support
  • Graphical User Interface written with Qt4 toolkit
  • System tray integration

RetroShare has been inspired by the design of the Turtle algorithm:

"When designing Turtle, we were inspired by the way people living under oppressive regimes share information deemed "hostile" by their government (this can be books, newsletters, video and audio recordings, or even political jokes). Because of the potentially very serious consequences raising from being caught possessing/distributing such material, no single individual is willing to share it, except with close friends. Experience has repeatedly shown that, even in the most repressive environments, this "friends-to-friends" delivery network is remarkably effective in disseminating information, with relatively little risks for the participating parties; if one chooses his friends carefully, the chance of being caught doing the forbidden exchanges becomes very small."

Retroshare "... makes it difficult to intrude and hardly possible to monitor from an external point of view." This makes government monitoring and prosecution impossible beyond the will of Retroshare users

Free to use.

Send Up To 1 Terabyte for Free: P2P BitTorrent-Based File Sharing with SoShare

Send Up To 1 Terabyte for Free: P2P BitTorrent-Based File Sharing with SoShare | Online Collaboration Tools |

Beyond WeTransfer.

Robin Good's insight:

SoShare is a free web service based on BitTorrent technology that allows you to send as many files as you want to anyone at no cost. The service allows for up to 1 TB in file size for each bundle you send. A bundle is made up by one or more files you want to share.

From GigaOM: "SoShare combines BitTorrent file transfer technology with cloud caching, making it possible for recipients to access the files even when the sender is offline."

To upload or download a file you need to install a browser plugin.

SoShare displays your file transfer progress, provides both a file deletion and a file expiration command (by default files transferred / shared via SoShare expire after 30 days), as well as social sharing buttons for any bundle sent.

Free to use.

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy

Secure File Sharing and Large File Cloud Storage with Copy | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Copy is a cloud-based service which allows anyone to easily upload, store and share any kind of file, while keeping in sync your different devices. Copy comes also with desktop versions for Mac, Windows and Linux as well as iOS and Android mobile versions.

"Once uploaded, Copy generates a unique URL for the file that you can copy and send to the intended recipients over email, social media networks or IM. On the receiving end, the user just needs to open that URL in their web browser and click the Download button to download the file to their PC, smartphone or tablet.

While you can use Copy’s file sharing features without creating any account, registering for one rewards you with a few additional privileges like 5GB of cloud storage and file synchronization straight from desktop or mobile, depending on which platform you use it. An account can be created both from the web interface and from within the service’s desktop or mobile apps."

Copy provides you ith 5GB of inital free storage space, which gets bumped up to 10GB as soon as you install a desktop or mobile version.

"You can share files without even creating any user account that most other similar services often require."

"Copy also keeps past versions of your files so that if you accidentally lose or change something, you can get it back. The Android app of the service comes with PhotoCopy – a feature that automatically uploads your photos to the cloud similar to Dropbox, SugarSync and Google+’s offering."


For up to 5GB and more free to use.

Robin Good shares a new Cloud Service with us in this scoop. Have a read of his comments below. They are very helpful. Thanks Robin, once again.


One question I do have is what is the sustainability or business models of these services. It's hard enough to keep up with local storage equipment and standards, or connectors  (e.g., Firewire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB TNG, Apple Lightning, SATA, etc., etc.,) How will we keep up with the technology? How will we know where we put that important file? This why curation, maintenance, and digital archive management are becoming much more important. 

Salvatore Headwolf's comment, March 31, 2013 7:16 AM
very interesting, thanks Robin :)
wanderingsalsero's curator insight, April 3, 2013 11:51 PM

I find this MOST interesting.  Thanks Robin.  Cloud storage has become more interesting to me because I work on a laptop with a HD that is pretty well maxed-out for now.  I've used Dropbox for years and am up to about 11 G right now because I've had some referrals.  But I think it's always good to have some more storage.

Robin Good: Fuze Join is an iPhone app which allows Fuze Meeting enterprise customers to launch video-conferences with up to 12 people directly from their iOS device.

Unlimited Screen-Sharing, Branded Private Rooms and File Sharing with YouDazzle | Online Collaboration Tools |

Robin Good: YouDazzle is a new online collaboration service which allows you to share files, manage private meeting rooms, do screen sharing and have real-time discussions with your team members.

Key features include:

  • a minimum of 20 GB of storage
  • File sharing
  • Screen-sharing
  • Unlimited private rooms
  • Unlimited guests
  • Analytics
  • Dropbox Integration
  • Custom Branding

PCWorld writes: "The company uses third-party public clouds, hosted by Amazon Web Services and DropBox, to not only store files in a cloud, but allow for multiple users to access them during Web meetings.


YouDazzle features password protected online "rooms" that store files that can then be shared by a host with invited members to a meeting.

The software also supports screen sharing and a discussion feature that allows for real-time conversations during the online meeting.

The company's software is integrated with Dropbox APIs, which allows for documents that are stored in DropBox to be edited in the application and stored back into the cloud."


YouDazzle, which released the product this week, has a free version, allowing one user to host a single meeting. (*Credit card required)

For $20 a month, a user can host an unlimited number of meetings, while for $40 up to three hosts can access the software and for $100 a month up to 10 hosts can start online meetings."

Airdrop for Any OS: Transfer Any File Between Macs, PCs & Smartphones Over WiFi with Filedrop

Airdrop for Any OS: Transfer Any File Between Macs, PCs & Smartphones Over WiFi with Filedrop | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

Filedrop is a new free downloadable app for Mac, PC, iOS and (soon) Android which allows you to easily transfer any file from any two such devices by simply dragging and dropping your selected file over a hot box.

Once downloaded and launched Filedrop on at least two devices, you only need to drag and drop any file you want to transfer to the other devices onto the Filedrop hot box and accept the transfer on the receiving device, and you are done.

Zero interface. Zero registration or login.

Supersimple to use.

Excellent. Very useful. Highly recommended.

Free on PC and Mac.

0.99$ / 0.89€ the mobile app. 

N.B.: In my tests, Mac and PC versions run reliably on XP and Mac OSX 10.7.5 but not on my iPhone 4 with iOS 6. On the iPhone I could only get a blank screen. On a second iPhone with iOS7 everything run smoothly.

P2P + WebRTC: Share Any File of Any Size with Anyone Instantly via Sharefest

P2P + WebRTC: Share Any File of Any Size with Anyone Instantly via Sharefest | Online Collaboration Tools |
Robin Good's insight:

With the introduction of the WebRTC protocol, any browser wanting to become a vehicle for P2P real-time communications, that requires no software downloads or central servers, can now do so.

"In real terms, WebRTC enables features such as videochat, VoIP calling, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing, all within the browser."

One of the first apps taking advantage of the new protocol is Sharefest, an open-source browser-based app which allows you to send any file of any size to anyone that has its reference link. Just like a P2P torrent file the more people downloading it the easier and faster the transfer will be.

Sharefest essentially let's other people securely connect directly to your computer via the WebRTC protocol and to initiate a mesh, distributed file download that draws on your original file as well as on the parts of it already downloaded by others.

It goes without saying that you need to keep your computer on for this file transfer to take place unattended. 

"Sharefest operates on a mesh network similar to BitTorrent and all transfers are executed peer-to-peer. Files can be shared with many people at once and the technology can swarm to speed up transfers, just like BitTorrent. It’s Open Source and apart from Chrome or Firefox, no additional software is required."


"Sure, you could use Dropbox, YouSendIt, or even BitTorrent sync to do the same thing, but with Sharefest there's no extra software to install; no account registration; there's no centrally located server on which file delivery depends. And once other users download the file, they can expand the network as well, providing additional peer-sharing power."


My comment: Excellent direct P2P file-sharing tool, has no limitations in terms of file size, speed or number of people that you can distribute it to. Super-easy to use, free and open-source. Hard to beat.

N.B.: Currently, it works only with files under 250 MB (MioBook reports)

Free to use. 

No downloads and no registration required.

Ciao Robin, piacere di conoscerti! Ho provato a trasferire un file piuttosto pesante (circa 7 Gb) e il programma Sharefest dichiara la restrizione di poter caricare solo fino a 250 MB (per adesso...). Si tratta comunque di un servizio ottimo... Grazie ancora per la notizia!

Excellent feedback! - I have contacted the developer via Twitter to get a confirmation on this, but your response is already very clear. Thank you MioBook for your useful contribution.

File-Sharing for All on Facebook Groups

File-Sharing for All on Facebook Groups | Online Collaboration Tools |

Robin Good: Facebook has just announced that it is enabling across all accounts a "file sharing" feature inside Facebook Groups.

From the original article: "The social network has revealed to Mashable that all Groups will now offer the ability to send files.

This update rolls out to a small percentage of groups Thursday, and will become available to others during the following days. If you don’t have the feature already, Facebook wants you to know you’ll have it “soon.”

Facebook Groups for Schools, launched last month, incorporated the file-sharing feature — but you needed a .edu address to use it.

Users can upload most file types up to 25MB — the same file size limit as Gmail. The exceptions: music files (sorry, old-school Napster fans) and executable (.exe) files (sorry, hackers). But e-books, comics, music videos and other small movies are fair game."
