Share Files to Individual without software

Recommended Posts

I have looked through all the documentation for a way to share a file with someone via email that allows the recipient to download the file without the need to install any software. This would allow one time sharing/sending of file from the repository without the need to download the client. I know there are many cloud file sharing applications like pcloud etc but I Resilio is a great product and extending with this one time share would be really useful. 

Additionally it would be great for the recipient to be able to send a file via email back to the (Resilio) sender without the need for any software.

So where do you want us to report our wish for this functionality?
This feature is sourly lacking, many people I want to share files with (say family pictures with  my mother) really do not want to or are able to install the app AND open an account with yet another password etc etc only to receive my files.

This would make Sync so much more powerful in comparison with Dropbox and also Wetransfer etc..

Also it is almost impossible to find in documentation that syncing is only with peers and not 'outside public'. Almost if this is kept purposely unclear..

you can share a link to a folder or file and send it through email , QR code or IM.

Requires the receiver to install Resilio Sync first. The link doesn't work without the app!

I agree that this would be a powerful feature.  I am currently migrating away from SugarSync (after 10+ years!) to Resilio.  I think SugarSync has the advantage here.  But the underlying P2P technology and architecture of Resilio I can see is better.    

Ultimately, the capacity to share a link and allow others to download without needing the software could be a really good Pro or Business feature.  Yet, I can see the question: "Where do we host the file?" when there really is no cloud offering.
