    They are both wrong. #1 would be correct with the right form of "share".

    I don't understand. The word you highlighted (sharing) is the same as I wrote.

    Did you mean:

    1). I have share some files with you.

    ??

    The word was highlighted in red because it is wrong.

    You could say: "I have shared some files with you."

    Thanks.

    What about these:

    3). I am sharing some files to you.
    4). I have used ExampleFileHost.com sharing some files to you.
    5). I have used ExampleFileHost.com sharing some files with you.

    Because English requires "I have used something to do something".

    Your answer is very clear and simple. Thanks.

    By the way, can you guide me where I can learn more about "Because English requires "XXXXXX".
