The most popular electronic mail, Gmail, has given its users the chance of sending large files using Google Drive. Gmail is a free email service whereby everyone can register for free and send mail to another email account without any required payments.
In this tutorial, TheGhanaTech.com will show you how you can easily send large attached files on Gmail using Google Drive. Google Drive and Gmail are all cloud-based systems developed by Google. These systems are commonly found on both Andriod and Apple.
When you are sending a file, you can easily add attachments in Gmail up to 25MB but when the file is over 25MB, you would have to save the file in Google Drive and insert the link to the drive or shared drive file in your email. In a post sighted by TheGhanaTech.com, most people were asking why large files cannot be sent without inserting a link from Google Drive.
Sometimes when you try to send a large file on Gmail, the system sees the file to be a virus unless you share it through Google Drive. When sending about two or more large files, I recommend you compress or zip the files before sending. The process of compressing or zipping files makes it so easier to be linked to the drive and shared in your email.
