Difference between share via url and transfer?

Difference between share via url and transfer?

I was just wondering what exactly is the difference between share via url and transfer?In my mind, share files with others means that they can always get the latest version of your files as long as they are not kicked out, does that apply to share via url too? if not,  what is the difference between transfer and share via url? just want to use the right method to share files with others. thanks 🙂
