Email is commonly the go to method for sending out information to other individuals over the Internet. However, email is not always the most reliable, especially when large files are concerned. A single MP3 audio file is not overly large, but if you send multiple files at the same time your email account is probably going to stop you, as most electronic mail message service have a limit on the size of attached files. This is where 4Shared comes in very handy.

Submit the information, then open your email account and select the message sent from 4Shared MP3. This activates your account, allowing you to use the service.
4Shared Premium Service vs Free Service
You have 10 gigabytes worth of storage available to you via the free account. There are other features and more storage space with a premium account (you can add as much storage space as you need), but if you are only uploading MP3 audio files you should be fine to start off with the 1- gigs. Once you believe you need more space you can either delete some current files you no longer need, or opt for the premium service.
Log back onto your account, then click the "Upload" button. This loads a browser window onto the middle of your screen. Select the MP3 audio file you want to upload to the 4Shared network and click "OK." Depending on the size of the file it is going to take a few minutes to completely upload to the network.

Once complete you are then able to log onto the account on a different computer or device. Once you have logged onto your account you are able to see all the current files you have already uploaded.
