    If a file is too large to send by email attachment, I upload it to our server in an accessible folder with no other content and send a link to the recipient. I then delete after the recipient has received the file.

    Try We Transfer. Its free up to 2GB and you and the person you are sending the file to does not have to log on.

    I usually just use my own FTP, unless the client tells me they have dropbox

    Use a generic FTP called "Customer" that I setup for these things on my website.

    If you are sending the file (not receiving) they don't need to have an account. You can use the website to send a link to download a file. But yeah, for receiving it is tough.

    I tried to set up an FTP on our server so clients can upload/download directly to us, but I never could get it working, so instead we have a yousendit.com upload tool on our website, it's free, but it displays ads and it only holds the file for 3 days before it's deleted. You can pay for better service, but we haven't seen the need to yet.

    For sending files, we use our dropbox account.

    I've had good luck with mediafire lately... premium accounts are only $2.99/m and they have a nice embeddable code for clients to upload easy... very similar to most services, but it works well so far!

    I've ditched yousendit or whatever it's called now. If someone sends you 10 files you have to select and download them all individually which is tedious. They seem keen to have you pay for their online storage.
    Wetransfer or Dropbox allow you to download them all as one zip file.
    We have an onsite ftp server but it's not worth setting up for the occasional transfer.
