I think you may have heard of cloud storage options like Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and others. They basically make the task of file storage and file transfer easier. You can see a comparative study of various cloud storage options here. With cloud storage you can upload something your cloud account and then easily share the respective link with anyone, so that they can download your file. But there is something called as space restrictions for free use, whether you’re using Dropbox, Box or any other cloud storage service as a free user. For example Dropbox allows you to upload 2 GB with a maximum restriction of 300 MB per upload, which btw is good enough, but what if you want to upload a larger file and wanted it to share with your friends. Now you may have heard of peer-to-peer file transfer, which enables you to transfer any file type of any size to anyone. Too good to be true, but luckily it is. There are lots of peer-to-peer cloud services, but the one I’m going to state is called zeZebra.
zeZebra : Free peer-to-peer file upload service and why it is better than free cloud storage services
zeZebra is a free peer-to-peer file transferring service which allows you to upload and share unlimited photos, videos, documents, and other files of any size. Unlike most of the peer-to-peer file uploading services zeZebra maintains encryption so that the file being transferred is completely secure. And on top of that the file being transferred also doesn’t go through any server so you don’t have to worry about the file being monitored or something like that. So this means the file isn’t stored anywhere and follows a closed circle or loop between the sender and the receiver (something like an ad-hoc network).
zeZebra interface is so amazing that even if I don’t explain anything about its interface, you’ll figure it out yourself without a sweat. So when you run zeZebra for the first time you’ll see options like Share Files and Inbox. With share file you can share any file from your computer with anyone. In the Inbox you can see a list of files already transferred.
To upload or share a file you can either drag and drop or you can browse the file manually. After adding a file to be shared you’ll see a confirmation message like the one shown below.
To share a file or files with anyone you can click on the share icon as shown in the image below and share it via a lot of sharing options like Facebook, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoomail, and outlook (default mail).
As I mentioned before the file will be uploaded from your own computer so you don’t have to worry about the security of the file being transferred.
Note: It will be advised to users that you shouldn’t transfer any personal file through any kind of file sharing service, for that you can always use your email service.
