I have a few animal video files in the size range 30 MB - 65 MB. These are too large to email, so I want to use a file transfer program to share these files with select people. Which is best....Dropbox or OneDrive? Or is there something better?

This is not something I will need to do very often, so I want to keep it simple. Thanks in advance.

It is really personal preference. Both will work. I would personally use OneDrive as I am a OneDrive user.

OK, then......I will use Dropbox.

Just kidding. OneDrive it is. Thanks for the advice.

LOL! Actually, now that I think about it, I tend to just upload a larger file to my hosting and give a download link. Really for me it is no different than the files I put up on the CH download page.

I'm not saying that you should do the same BB. Just saying what I tend to do and offering another possible option. To be honest, if you are familiar with OneDrive and/or Dropbox, either would probably be the easier option for you as I know that using FTP to upload to your hosting is not as second nature to you as it it to me..

Actually, I haven't used either OneDrive or Dropbox, so I would have to learn. I did think about uploading the files to your Photo Gallery site, but these are video files and I thought you told me at one time not to upload videos.

And you are correct.....FTP is not a natural for me. I used it when building my webpage, but only with your help/guidance.
