    Question DropBox-style File Delivery Service?


    I work as an editor and frequently use online file delivery services like YouSendIt and Dropbox to privately deliver completed projects to clients. I noticed that I'm able to download really quite fast from my new Surpass shared site, and YouSendIt services come at a premium..

    Does anyone know of a program, install, or some type of service that I could set up at a directory on my server and use for the same purpose? I'm sure I could use a passworded folder but does anyone know of an existing thing I can install? The big and simple 'click to download' UI on the download pages in particular is what my clients find useful.

    Thanks for your time
