There is no blinking the fact that web 2.0 technologies have radically revolutionized the way users interact with internet and if we narrow down our scope to the file sharing area it becomes clear how easier it becomes for anyone to upload and share files with a single click. The thing, however, is that free file sharing is limited to only a few MBs per file which is, most of the times, insufficient especially when we have many files to share with our students and colleagues.
