    Sending 53MB Files to Someone

    Google Searches aside...
    Does anyone have a suggested or recommended means of getting over 50MB of forms (mostly xls and pdf) to someone in another state? Looking for a free method. I could load a flash drive and express mail it for $20 but I'm looking for an electronic (secure) method.
    This should be a one-time need. Until next time <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Try this site : http://www.box.net/

    Online file sharing...I have never used it personally, but it seems to be a valid option for you!

    I am lucky as I have a website so I would have loaded it up on to my domain and then sent links to download, or allowed them to FTP

    Otherwise, for business purposes, sending a 50Mb file is not that big these days, you could send a series of emails, zipped in bite size chunks and just explain to the person it is the easiest way to do it.


    .....or if you are feeling brave RAS <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    Another option is Send This File. I have used the service for files to 75 MB. I do use a throwaway email address for this sort of thing and would suggest the same for a one time use. HTH

    Rudi, Bear and Doc -

    Thanks for the replies. I was watching the posting like a hawk and when Rudi's response hit the thread, I immediately went to [www.box.net]. Worked out great. Files have been transferred and I I have a free account to use for future use...

    Oddly enough - I have my own domain. Had it for four years. And all I use it for is personal email... One day, you guys are gonna have to teach me how to use it for file sharing. I figure at some point, I'll give it to one my kids for building a website.
