Collaborate easily with these file sharing tools

In this age of freelancing and work-from-home opportunities, it is important to have a way to collaborate with your colleagues as you perform your official duties in your pajamas while tucked comfortably under your sheets.


File sharing tools are essential if you are working online. Say goodbye to emails with limited attachment capacities with these file sharing tools your team of freelancers and online workers can use from now on.

1.      Dropbox

Dropbox is probably the most popular file sharing tool used and relied on and for a lot of good reasons. It provides easy file sychronisation and supports devices running on Windows, iOS, Android, Blackberry, Mac of Linus operating systems. Dropbox users can collaborate with Dropbox and non-Dropbox users as well. Non-Dropbox users can access Dropbox folders, add files to it, edit folders, or delete it by simply accessing the Dropbox link.

2.     Box

Like Dropbox, you can access your files on shared folders regardless of the device you are on provided that access to these folders is shared with you. Box is great for personal, business and enterprise IT use. People can send big files fast, collaborate seamlessly with other project teammates while making sure that these are all done securely.

 3.     Hightail

Hightail is an online file-sharing and storage tool that lets users send files of up to 2 GB from a desktop or from a mobile device. Users have control about who exactly sees and accesses files placed in the shared folders. It is also secure and allows people to collaborate with each other easily. Users can decide who can edit or update files on the shared folders, thus making it truly a secure option for file sharing and online collaboration. Users can also access their work saved in Hightail anytime regardless of the device they are using.

4.     Google Drive

Probably the easiest to use, Google Drive allows users to create folders, files and share them with the people they work with. Files and folders can be shared with people who may not have a Gmail account. You can see the modifications made on the folders and files and see who are currently online on the documents. Google Drive is probably the best file sharing tool to use as everything can be centralised on your Gmail account. Access your email, engage with people on Google+ and collaborate with workers on Google Drive all in one account.
