Simple file sharing
It’s easy to upload and share your work with anyone, and recipients won’t even need an account to access your files.
Along with 256-bit AES encryption and other Enterprise-grade security offerings, you have the option of adding security permissions to prevent content from getting into the wrong hands.
Recipients and senders receive real-time email notifications when files have been delivered and are available to download.
Frequently asked questions
What are the file size upload and storage limits in Hightail?
Hightail offers four different subscription levels for file sharing, with varying restrictions on file upload limits and storage. With our free Lite plan, you can upload files up to 100MB each, and have a storage limit of 2GB. Pro plans, which start at $15/month, allow you to upload individual files up to 25GB each. Teams plans, which start at $30/user/month, allow you to upload individual files up to 50GB each. Business plans, which start at $45/user/month, allow you to upload individual files up to 500GB each. Pro, Teams and Business plans come with unlimited storage.
Can I store my files into folders?
In Hightail, we do allow you to organize files the same way you would in a folder. Hightail uses the concept of Projects (groups of Spaces), Spaces and File Groups within a Space to organize files. You can think of a Space as a visual folder, that not only allows you to organize files, but also allows you to collaborate around files stored in Spaces.
How do I access Hightail to send files?
Whether you’re on a Mac, Windows or other operating system, Hightail can be accessed through your web browser for sharing files. We also have mobile apps and integrations with other services. Learn more on our mobile and applications page.
How do I share files with Hightail?
You have a few options for sharing files in Hightail. To send files directly to a recipient’s email address, you’ll open up a send form and upload your files to be delivered. If you are collaborating on multiple files, and are ready to send them to be reviewed, you can store those files in a Space and send the Space link out to your reviewer, or invite them to join your Hightail Space.
Does Hightail offer a free file sharing service?
Yes, you can sign up for a free Lite account for sharing files up to 100MB each with anyone. The Hightail Lite subscription also comes with 2GB of free storage.
