Hi Again
Hey I have to send a 200mb file by internet. Outlook won't let me do it and my gmail niether. One of my friends recommended Drop box but it does require the recipient to have the same app installed unless you make the file public, which is not ideal.
I guess what I am saying is, What is the normal practice for large file sending?
Thanks for time.

Without a storage server where someone can download from,yes. 10 meg is typicly the file size limit for most email servers. Yahoo instant messenger installed on both machines will allow you to drop a large file on the connection window, and with the reciever's permission, you can also do this. Peer to peer, like this needs someone on the other end to except the file. Hope this halps, Danny Hays, Universal Orlando.

Thanks Danny that is interesting.
I'm trying out this drop box, I will give feed back after a while of using it.

I use Dropbox a lot to send files to clients. It's only as public as you want to hand out the password.

You can use rapidshare.com or megaupload.com. The file limits are at least 250 MB. The instructions are fairly simple and you can have multiple files. Suppose you have a 1GB file, make it into a split archive using 7zip and send it in 5 parts of 200 MB each. We do this all the time at work, although our files are usually under 500 MB.

The best part is it's free, just expect to upload all night long.

Let me know how it goes,

Jeff

We have had such a problem with yousendit.com. It took us over 9 months to cancel our account with them. All the while they were taking out their $9.99 per month. After several others tried I finally had to call them and suggest that the California Attorney General may have something to say about their business practices. These are signs of an unscrupulous business that does not deserve our support.

Just my thoughts,

Jeff

I used drop box last night, it's almost a little spooky the way it works. There is a folder in My documents which is the drop box folder and as soon as a file is copy and pasted in there it starts to sync it to your online folder. If you have a second computer registered to the same account it will sync the drop box folder in there to the online folder and the dropbox folder on the other computer. If you delete a file on either computers or the online folder, it will automaticly delete them from the other two. I sent a link to my brother inlaw of a vid I done and it worked fine.(eg copy and paste the link onto an email I sent him)

Yes, installing new soft is evil if you just need to transfer a file. I mean, isn't the internet is build for data transfering? What for you will install new soft? What I use is http://click2copy.com - it doesn't require any additional installation and transfers files directly (without uploading). You select the file, click2copy creates the link, you sends the link to your friend, yozur friend opens the link - and the file transfer begins: browser-to-browser, without uploading or something. So, the data is transfered directly. That's really the only one service in inet that do such an amazing stuff. Give it a try!
