Working with large files with multiple users can be difficult without dedicated cloud space for storage. YouSendIt Express for Mac allows you to upload files without a Web browser and add additional security.

Available as freeware, YouSendIt Express for Mac is free to operate, although it does require that you provide an e-mail address to log in. Once signed in, you have the option of upgrading to a paid account, which allows for larger file transfers and more messaging capability at about $15 per month. The program's native installer is well designed and sets the program up quickly. Since the program and service allow large files to be transferred, it may facilitate some activity that violates copyright. As such, you must acknowledge and accept several licensing agreements and disclaimers before the program begins. Once running, the program's menus appeared dated, but they are designed to be functional. Once the file uploads, which it does in an expected amount of time, the program gives a link to access it. You can then send this out to whoever needs access to the file. There are options to add password protection and expiration times to limit unauthorized use. Overall, the service worked as intended and may help people who often collaborate with large files that will not attach to typical e-mails.
