Most of us need to share large files every now and then. So a service like Uguu that allows you to do that with a minimum of fuss can be a welcome addition to your toolbox. As you would expect, Uguu is supremely simple to use. Upload a file (the service supports files up to 100MB in size), and share the automatically generated link with the file's intended recipients.

Uguu stores uploaded files only temporarily, and the service deletes them automatically after 24 hours. This simple creature comfort ensures that none of your shared files linger on the web longer than necessary. Uguu is written in PHP, and the software is available on GitHub. The software requires a web server like Apache or Nginx and PHP, and Uguu is relatively easy to install. In other words, you can roll out your own Uguu service in no time.
