For over 8 years this application has let me maintain my own large file share system perfectly!

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: My company gets a self-branded file sharing website which we use to distribute files to our clients, allow them to upload large files to us as a guest, and allows us to send large files to anyone with want, all for FAR less than maintaining an account at an expensive online service.

Pros:

Customer Service is FAST and FANTASTIC! Anytime I've ever needed help I just send a quick email and get a response in a few hours. They release updates regularly and have for many years now, and are constantly adding new features and tweaking others to make them work better. They listen to customer feedback and suggestions, and develop with open source friendliness to make hooking into their systems easy too. The free version they offer is reat for small businesses, but the software REALLY shines when you are running 10 or more.

Cons:

The licensing can get a bit expensive, but they have a free version for up to 5 users that helps a lot too.
