Share large files with ease using Share by BitTorrent

It can be tricky to find a way to share large files with people over the internet. One option would be to split a large file into a number of smaller pieces, but this can be a pain. Share is a free tool from the people behind BitTorrent that makes it easy to share files of any size with anyone online. Raher than having to rely on email attachments, Share enables you to share files using the BitTorrent P2P protocol - and thankfully this is far less complicated than it might sound.

Anyone who has used uTorrent will be aware that the program is wonderfully easy to use, and Share takes a similar approach. Sharing files is a simple matter of signing up for a free account with Share and then selecting which files should be shared. Selecting files can be achieved by browsing through folders, or you can simply drag and drop files onto the app interface.

There are a number of cloud storage services available which advertise themselves as being ideal for file sharing. While there are other services that make it possible to upload files and share links with other people which they can use to download the files, there are almost always limits on file sizes. This is not the case with Share – you are free to share files of any sizes as there are no restrictions on how it may be used.

Share can be used to share files with individual people, or you can configure groups for mass sharing. When files are shared in this way, greater download speeds can be achieved in much the same way as when a particular torrent has a large number of seeds as it means that bandwidth can be shared. When sharing, you can share using email addresses as a point of contact or you can share via Facebook and the ability to add comments makes it possible to communicate information without the need to send separate emails/

Verdict:

A great way to share files which helps to overcome a number of frustrations when it comes to sharing large files.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
