Tutorial: How to share large files in Google Drive.

Large files can be shared via Dropbox, OneDrive, Wetransfer or via Google Drive. One of the most widely used platforms is Wetransfer. The advantage of Wetransfer is that it is fast and you can quickly upload large documents, videos, or other files. The downside is that you have no control over the shared files.

My advice is to use a web solution and that you can also control the permissions and the people who have access.

Sometimes you want to share a file temporarily. Sometimes you'd rather share it permanently. At all times, you want to be able to break access, and you can do that best with Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox.

Create a Google account to get started

Navigate to: accounts.google.com - press create account at the bottom left.

Creating an account takes only 2 minutes. You do not have to fill in all the fields, only those that are mandatory.


These are the most important fields in account creation.
