SendFile is a software tool which was built specifically to provide users with a simple means of transferring files from one computer to another, though a LAN connection.
Advantages of portability
Surprisingly enough, this utility is portable, which means that the installation process can be bypassed with great ease. As a result, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be updated with new entries, and no leftovers will remain after its removal.
Another important aspect that you should take into consideration is that by copying the program files to any kind of removable data drive, you can run SendFile on the breeze, on any machine you can connect you.
The interface you are met with presents a simple and intuitive design, as it presents a menu bar, a few shortcut buttons and two panels in which you can view your shared items and all processes, be they ongoing or complete. It becomes quite clear that both beginners and experienced people can learn how to handle it with great ease.
Sharing any kind of file
The only manner in which you can upload items to the app is by using the incorporated file browser, as the “drag and drop” function is not supported. Once this process is complete, a code is going to be generated for the file and the person trying to download from you will have to input it.
Aside from that, you can set your IP manually, look it up on a website and use one of the addresses detected by your system. The main window displays the direction, destination, name, progress, speed and approximate time left of all processes, and a message is going to pop up if an action fails.
To conclude, SendFile is a simple, yet efficient piece of software when it comes to receiving and sending items through a LAN connection. The interface is minimal, the response time is good, the system’s performance is not hindered and our tests did not reveal any kind of errors or crashes.
