Sharing a file via a link offers several advantages over attaching it directly to a message. Using a link reduces the strain on email systems, as attachments can take up significant space and cause delivery issues with large files. Additionally, links allow for more efficient sharing of files, especially larger ones, without encountering size limitations commonly imposed by email providers.

Even more importantly, when sharing via a link, users can maintain a single version of the file that can be updated or changed without having to resend it—ensuring recipients always access the most current version. This method also offers enhanced security by enabling the sender to control access permissions, granting specific individuals or groups the ability to view or edit the file while maintaining privacy and preventing unauthorized downloads.
