I have to send a 2GB mpg file to someone. This is much larger than the files I normally send and all my usual methods of file transfer are ineffective.
- My ISP limits email attachments to 10MB.
- My free Hightail (formerly yousendit.com) account limits me to 250MB per upload and wants my charge card number for a free trial of their upgraded service. (I have been the victim of identity theft before, so I never send charge card info online).
- My GoDaddy hosting plan includes painfully slow ftp storage up to 10GB. It took about an hour and half for me to upload the file, although my upload bandwidth supports transfers up to 5GB/second. When I finally got the file on the server, it blocked permissions to download and then wouldn't let me remove the file when I gave up on it. (Nobody knows why. Their techs are working on it.)
I am sending the file as a favor, so I don't want to spend money on service upgrades -- especially since it is unlikely that I will ever have to transfer something this large again. My paying clients give me WAN access to their servers when needed, and we are never working with files this large anyway.
I guess what I am looking for is a free alternative to Hightail with a file size limit over 2GB. If there is such a thing, I would appreciate it if someone would let me know as soon as possible.
