Hi Juan,

I also use Hightail but here's the problem: Your DPs' upload speed at his place. 93GB is huge and will take quite awhile, many residential connections would time him out. I'm with Comcast and mine would. He should do a speed test at:

and make sure he is getting the absolute highest upload rate his provider is charging him for. He should not use his wifi, rather, he should get his computer closer to his router and use a ethernet cable. He should also turn off all other devices that are hooked into his wifi. That file is so huge it would be best if he could do it in chunks. There's a service called Signiant’s Media Shuttle that claims to do it seamlessly:

Something that huge he should just ship you the hard drive.

P.S. Everyone should do the speed test above several times a year. Very good chance your speeds are less than what you are paying for! You can then complain to your provider and get better speed or at least a refund. Often it is a matter of getting firmware updates for the router. Try it.
