Sharing files, tracking downloaders
July 19, 2010 2:56 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a good way to share files with my clients that average about 20-25 MB each. While I've seen a number of (excellent) recommendations, like drop.io, I haven't been able to find one with this feature: Tracking which people download the file. I'd be okay if users had to create accounts, or if it was tracked by click-through from email links. But it must be private and allow user tracking.

Box.net will do this, although their free service has a 25MB filesize upper limit.

Amazon's S3 offers detailed logging of transfers, and it's essentially free for small-scale use.

KnowledgeTree is very robust.

I've had good luck with Sharefile.

YouSendIt is excellent, although pricey for those features ($30 per month).

www.wetransfer.com is free and super easy. it emails you when the person downloads the files. i don't know if that's enough tracking for you.

sharefile is good, but it's expensive, and i've only used it with corporate clients who had their own account.

Boxcloud does exactly that as well. Full disclosure: I'm on an email list with the founder, who is a really good guy.
