really need to have you look at it for safety and privacy

Well... if you cannot post it, and I must look at it, how am I to look at it? Any ideas? I confess it's a bit late and I don't see how we can do this evaluation and advisory process.

If i send a file link, will it stay private and not post on message board?

I see. Well, you could post it to a file posting site, but with a password ***** you only let me know. That might ... uh, no, that wouldn't be secure either, because the password ***** also be here as well as the link to the file's posting. Hmmm.... would you be willing to email the file to Customer Support at Justanswer, then have them forward it to me?

I think so, yes.
