Which program do you use to send or share big files that are 700mb or bigger? I am trying to do this from PC to PC.

Hi,

I plan on sharing with many long distance family members.

I'm trying to look for one of those services like box.net and skydrive that will allow me to upload and share a link for files greater than 700 mb.

Anyone know of a good free service that I can sign up to upload large files to share?

Just tried it and was going to take me 54 minutes for a 932mb file. I thought I had a decent connection. Then it was 1hr to 1.5 hr for 2gb so kinda up to what you need.

I have always wanted the same thing. My only solution was to use the free 2gb account of storage that Comcast/xfinity gives per account and use that and FTP.

Then yesterday a friend sent me a link on skydrive of a 2gb file. So why cant you use Skydrive?

You might try dropbox but keep this in mind:

Is there a limit or maximum to how big my files can be?
Files uploaded to Dropbox via the desktop application or mobile apps have no file size limit.

Files uploaded through the website (by pressing the upload button) have a 300 MB cap. In other words, each file you upload through the website must be 300 MB or less.

All files uploaded to your Dropbox must be smaller than the size of your Dropbox account's storage quota. For example, if your account has a storage quota of 2 GB, you can upload one 2 GB file or many files that all add up to 2 GB. If you are over your storage quota, Dropbox will stop syncing until you are below your limit.
I'm curious about this as well.

Never checked this one out but looks like it could fit the bill.

I have 2.75gb of dropbox. It also has a cool app that can auto upload stuff from your computer, phone etc...Not sure of the upload limit. Same goes for Media Fire.
