Share files with Drop.io

Drop.io
YouSendIt, MailBigFile, and Driveway are great if you need to share a file that's too large to fit in an email attachment. But what if you want to share a bunch of files with a group of people? Sure, you could just keep sending out emails with that link, but wouldn't it be nice if you could set up a temporary web page where people could download files or view pictures, watch videos, or listen to audio online?

Drop.io does just that. You don't need to register or even enter an email address to create a Drop.io page. Just enter a name for your page (7 character or longer), and start uploading files. Generally, Drop.io seems to prefer videos, images, audio, and documents. We tried uploading an executable file and it promptly disappeared.

The site includes a Flash player that will let you access media online or you can click a download link to save files. The user who creates a Drop.io page can choose whether other users can edit the page or just view it. You can also select how long files will be available for, from 1 day to 1 year.
