Bad news, it could be that I did something wrong but is it as it says: "1mb can takes between 5 and 20 minutes depending on your upload speed" meaning that 1Gb is likely to take forever?

If you're on dial up, it's going to take a long time to send all those files even if they are broken up into 1Mb files. Phat Al is trying to send 2 Gb so hope he has a fast conection.

Post back if all this has taken care of your problem(s). I haven't use the online e-mail service for sending large files yet so curious if it lives up to its name.

I remember when I had dial up back in the late 90s downloading those humongous files. One took close to 15 hours! Nevermore sayeth the Raven.

i checked out the u send it link. didn't try it out but looks like all it does is store the data on its server and provide a link to that data to the recepient. i guess this allws the recipient to access the data but not actually save it. perhaps it has some method of sending the large files to the recipients comp but it looks like it just makes them accessable on thier (usendit's) server. it says the files are deleted after 7 days.

guys check out http://www.justupload.co.uk they had me sending huge files within minutes! no FTP software, just using a web browser I could set up all my friends and colleagues to be able to send me files in their own upload areas.

I even got to change the logo on my sign in page!

StreamLoad

I found this site when I was sending files back and forth between school and home. The free account allows user to upload up to 100mb. Paid accounts get more.

You can upload and download either with the browsers or download streamload utilieties. Friends can go to the site and send you large files. You data can be reached from any location with internet. Some type of files can be dispayed in the streamload window and it will play music from the server is you put music files on the server.
