Customer Question
I want to send...

I want to send large files via email. How?

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. This is an independent, pay-per-question, fee-based technical support site.

My name is ***** ***** I will help you now.

Try these steps with your google (gmail) account and reply to let me know the results.

  • Hover the mouse pointer over the Attach files button (or the + sign) while composing a message in Gmail.
  • Select Insert files using Drive.
  • To send a file (or more than one) from your computer (which you have not yet uploaded to your Google Drive account):
    (Note that you can only insert files from Google Drive or from your computer at one time; you can add both types to your email, of course, separately.)
    • Go to the Upload category.
    • Drag a file (or more than one) from your computer and drop it onto Drag files here.
      • If you do not see Drag files here or in general to pick documents to upload via a dialog:
        • Click Select files from your computer.
          • If you have already uploaded files, click Add more files.
        • Highlight all files you want to upload.
        • Click, typically, Open.
    • Click Upload.

NOTE: To reply to me, please type your message in the box below and click the button to send.

I have done that but I always get the error msg that the file is too large. I usually scan 50 pgs to send. I have even tried to zip them and send them that way
Software technician: technicalcat, Consultant replied 1 month ago

Is this greater than 10GB?

Software technician: technicalcat, Consultant replied 1 month ago

Are you able to break those up into smaller files? For a single download, greater than 10GB is not very good. That's why google sets that size (in part).

does another email provider work better?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
can I send a link that would lead the recipient to my file?
Software technician: technicalcat, Consultant replied 1 month ago

If greater than 10GB you are leaning more towards pay services (business). Dropbox business claims no file size limitation. You can also try it out free. I have linked it below. What you have to remember is that your recipient may have difficulty downloading such large single files.
