Windows has it's own File Sharing abilities built-in. Just right-click on a folder you want to share and select "Sharing and Security".

A 6Gb file is going to take all day on a wireless connection.
A 6Gb file over a wired connection will take a long time.

An external hard drive is realistically the only practical solution, carry it between the computers, for those sorts of files. There's too much to go wrong realistically any other way.
