  • I can not send a file because it's too large for the server. It says to put the file in a shared location and send the link. How ?, thank you.

  • Wrong forum as this is for Windows Home Server - try at answers.microsoft.com. Having said that, you can use Microsoft OneDrive for that purpose or a 3rd party cloud storage facility such as DropBox. There are many other similar facilities available.

  • If a file is too large to send, it depends from the file itself and where you need to get it, how you can handle this.

    Assume, if your sending mail server has already a limit how large a file can be, the recipient can even have a much smaller limit. So if you want to rely on E-Mail, you can only make the file smaller - if the format allows.

    If this is not an option, you can use either own webspace or 3rd party ressources as Phil already mentioned to upload and host your data for a while.

    In case you really have a Windows Home Server, you could create an account for the recipient on it, allow him remote access to the share containing the file and have him download the file from here.
