Best way to share files with external users.

What is the best way to share a folder on my server (about 30G) with external users via Internet. We need extra users to have access to only that folder.

If privacy is a concern then VPN is best.  But if it's not a concern the a cloud solution may be worth checking out.  There are many to choose from and something like Dropbox require subscription for over 2GB.

You can use Drop Box as suggested above or One Drive if the users are Microsoft users. Something like this is normally the best approach for us.

One Drive is not third party and VPN (mostly) is slower and a little more technical to use
