How to Securely Share Large Files

Get Large Files to Their Destination with eFax

Emailing large files often results in complicated workarounds or failure to deliver. With improved high-definition video and large-format images, valuable files are often difficult to send. You can’t send a high-resolution image gallery, video clip or PowerPoint through email if the files are too big.

Electronic fax avoids this problem altogether, enabling fast and secure delivery. No more slow processing or bounced emails. No need to compress files until they are distorted beyond a usable state.

With eFax’s large file sharing services, you can:

  • Share up to 3GB per fax
  • Attach any file format or zipped file
  • Offer files for 90 days before the links expire
  • Send up to 75 large faxes a month
  • Ensure delivery with email receipt notifications
  • Send the secure link to up to 20 email addresses at once​

Benefits of Large File Sharing Through eFax

Sending large files can become an issue because many platforms limit what you can send. However, there is no need to turn to email or cloud storage or passing along a thumb drive for your large files. Modern faxing offers a better way. Large file sharing through eFax is fast, convenient and secure.

Here are some of the reasons you should fax large files with eFax.

Secure Sharing to Protect Your Files

For your most important documents, such as presentations, finance spreadsheets, strategic research or product plans, you need to be able to trust that your files will reach recipients without incident. With a direct fax number and receipt upon delivery, eFax delivers your important files into the right hands. For larger groups, you can share a secure download link for up to 20 recipients at once.


On-the-Go File Sharing Capabilities

eFax has a desktop and a mobile app you can use to you send faxes faster no matter where you are. eFax makes it easy to send faxes or generate large file sharing links directly from your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

Digital Format for Modern Convenience

Old fax methods required a printed document or image, but that left only a paper copy on the other end. New electronic fax options allow you to send digital versions that are ready to review, edit and use. The eFax platform supports over 170 file formats, including PDF, DOC, JPEG, PSD, GIF, DFX and more. Recipients don’t have to be registered with eFax to receive your documents and large files.

File Tagging for Improved Organization

Your eFax online portal supports free online storage for all inbound and outbound faxes. You can tag your faxes with keywords to make it easier to find specific documents and files. eFax keeps your important large files secure and easily accessible from any device. Simply log in to your eFax account and download the files sent or received via fax.

Electronic faxes are fast and inexpensive. With eFax, you don’t need to invest in an FTP solution or cloud storage option because you automatically get the ability to share large files. Plus, eFax is as easy to use as email—making the whole process extremely cost-effective, fast and convenient.

With eFax, you can collaborate with multiple account users, save your electronic signature, choose a local phone number, set up free online storage and more.

Should You Compress Large Files?

Some services, like SMS or text messaging, will automatically compress files that are too large. If you’ve ever tried sending a video clip via SMS, chances are it would be compressed into something similar to a low-quality GIF.

If you need to compress large files, keep the following in mind:

Compression Strips Content Quality

Compressing your files means stripping out the quality to lower the size of the file. For many companies and professionals, sending the original file is non-negotiable. Not only will original files enable editing, but they are also necessary for large-format printing. Once you’ve compressed an image or video, you can’t restore it to the original size.

Keep Original Files on Hand

Compression isn’t a bad thing when used correctly. You may choose to compress a version of your image or video for web use so it loads quickly. However, you still want to keep the original file in case you need a higher-quality version for another purpose, such as a conference presentation, printed ad or TV spot.

Set Clear Guidelines for Compressed File Use

When sharing files, you will rarely want to compress them first for the following reasons:

  • Low-quality images look grainy or pixelated
  • Low-quality videos look choppy and distorted

Compressing a file often leads to low-quality versions of your file being used in the wrong places, which can hurt your brand reputation or make you look unprofessional.

In many cases, you will have to share large file sizes. Whether you’re collaborating with a team, delivering a project, sending out company materials or working with a contracted professional, you need the ability to send large files.

Share any File Format or Zip File

In today’s interconnected world, seamless communication often requires the exchange of diverse file formats – from vital documents like PDFs and PowerPoint presentations (PPTs) to multimedia files encompassing videos, X-rays and images.
