Google Drive: Share Links

If you need to share a large file (ie. a file too large to attach to an e-mail), you can use Google Drive to create a "share link".  You can then e-mail the link to your recipient, and they can click the link and download your large file.  Here's how to create a share link:

Step 1
Go to https://drive.google.com and login with your school issued @rockcreekstudents.org Google account.  Once logged in, click the "new" button and upload the file that you wish to share.


Step 2
Click on the file you uploaded to highlight it, and then click the share link icon:

Step 3
Click the slider in the upper-right corner to toggle sharing on, and then click on "sharing settings":


Click the drop-down arrow, and then click "More...":


Step 5
Select the option "On - Anyone with the link", which will allow anyone you provide the link access without requiring them to sign in with a Google account.  This is the easiest option for the person you are sharing your file with.  Make sure the access is set to "can view", and then click "Save".

Step 6
Lastly, click the button to "Copy link", and click Done.  Now you can e-mail your share link to anybody and they will be able to download your file!
