FileChute offers an easier way to send large files. How many times have you tried to email a large file only to have it bounce?

FileChute makes sending files easy. Just drag a file and drop it on FileChute. FileChute puts the file on your Dropbox or website and generates a Web link for retrieving the file all in one step. Next drag the generated link into your email and you're set to go. And since what you're sending is just a link, your recipients can retrieve the file from a Mac, a PC or any other platform. You can even drop multiple files or folders at once. FileChute

An old reliable, updated, that does away with all the new Apple services that too often simply don't work.

I have been using Filechute for years.
It is one of the fastest and easiest ways to send files to colleagues
family or friends. Thank you for this excellent time saver. Would like to add that I just recently transferred to a newer Macbook with no hassle at all unlike some other developers where you have to jump through so many processes. Excellent! Well worth every penny.

I have been using this for years - painless, simple and elegant. LOVE IT! My only quibble (it's tiny) is the reminder about old files on your server - I would like that to be a pref to ignore.
BUY IT!

I've been using FileChute for years. I originally purchased it as part of the awesome Yellow Mug software bundle. The integration with DropBox is wonderful for photographers. Highly recommended.

Filechute definitely gets a "hats off" from me. I've been using file chute for years now. It is very simple to use and very effective at what it does. I like to send pointers, not files. It allows me to control what files people can have access to, minimizes issues with receiving mail servers and allows me to easily expire access to files after a predetermined time period.
I like all my yellow mug applications. Simply, done right!

Use now for over 5-6 years. At times, steep learning curve, but once you do, it is stable and works very very well. No real complaints at all. Worth it for large files such as music or photos.

I've been using this program for 3 or 4 years and it has one of the things I rarely get out of such utilities: Consistency! It always works just the way it's supposed to and I don't have to endlessly fuss with things. I drag them in, I sent a link to a friend and I'm DONE.

I have used this program for several years now. I started out with MobileMe. I recently set it up for Dropbox because it is a one step process to upload the file and get the link to send. Drag the file to the Dock icon and then drag the link to email or even your Instant Messenger program.

philbridges had trouble on 28 Aug 2008
I've had a problem recently after my ISP locked me out unless I reset my password to something far more secure... so I set a really went it for and included the £ sign (it's similar to a $ but far stronger!) .

For some reason Filechute didn't like the changed password so (tongue-in-cheek) I logged a call with the author to see if he could offer any clues. Bear in mind the program only costs just $15, I kind of thought I was pushing my luck but..

Within a few hours Jay (the author) came back to me, asked for a bit more info and.. afew hours later... hey presto updated Filechute to accommodate my very draconian password scheme!!

I'm an IT Manager and hey, I've bought software for the office costing anything for 10 -100 times what Filechute costs yet the support those companies gave me didn't even touch the sides compared to Filechute.

As Amber McArthur and Don McAllister have pointed out in the past, Jay is one of the good guys for sure, he clearly doesn't do it for the money, he does it c'os he believe he wants to contribute to the Mac community, and I for one am very grateful, THANK YOU Jay!

Very good app indeed, it has helped me several times.

FYI: version 2.8.2 does not decompress correctly (neither the download through MacUpdate nor the update from the app itself. Probably some corrupted file. Maybe the developer could inform us on MacUpdate once this is fixed.

Problem appears to be at your end, the downloaded .dmg mounts with no issues here.

Thank you, I will try again later, after restarting my Mac. Since I had the same problem both through MacUpdate and inside the app, I had not expected the problem could be on my end - especially since the previous updates went flawlessly.
