How to Send or Share Files using Google Drive
If you’re trying to send a group of files, or a large file, email is no good.
Many people are left asking how to email large files. The answer to the question is that you should use a cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox.
The two major cloud storage services that we recommend are Dropbox and Google Drive.
Google Drive is free with Gmail, and you can get increased storage limits with the $5/month G-Suite or the $10/month Business plan.

Two Sharing Options:
- You can either share a file with someone else that you’ve already uploaded to the Drive.
- Someone can share a folder with you, and you can upload into that shared folder
Which one does Feedbackwrench Use?
To send files to us, we like to share a folder with our clients where they can upload all their files.
This allows us to have an organized system.
