Dropbox is a well known file synchronization and backup service. But this tool comes with some limitation. Those users who are not using Dropbox can’t upload files on other’s account. This restriction leads users to use other clunky file backup services if they need to transfer large files over internet.

The tool comes with one nice feature. After sending one file, the sender can’t send other file because the secure link automatically expires after one usage.

AirDropper uses SSL encryption at each stage of a request, both while you’re making a request and while the file travels from the sender’s computer to your Dropbox. They don’t save any of your data inside their servers.

It comes with one restriction also. User can’t send more than one file at a time. To overcome this problem, one nice workout is to zip the file using Winzip or other file compression tool and then send the file.

I really liked this tool. Will have to give it a try. Just wondering is there a file size limitation?
