Okay so I need to do some file tranfering PC to PC.
I'm moving some files to a friend and the size of the files makes it impossible to email, and all remote access software has been troublesome, since you have to buy a subscription to transfer things.
i'll be moving some documents, but mostly movies and other media.
I need an easy program like CC File Transfer, but i'm poor so i would prefer a free program, or one i can uninstall and reinstall trials.

Help is MUCH appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Your best bet is FTP. Filezilla works fine, and is free. Filezilla contains both a server and a client. The machine running the server should be connected directly to the internet; i.e., not through a NAT. If both of you are behind NATs, then the one running the server should have the appropriate ports forwarded from his/her router to his/her machine.

Use an ext HD, by far the easiest way.

I was just about to say that.

If not, are you unable to use services such as www.sendspace.com ?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by ext HD. An external harddrive? if so, that's completely out of the question, he lives in another state.

sendspace only allows up to 300megs, and the movie files i have are at least 600.

I also want a few other friends to be able to receive these files.

And i'm having the worst time trying to figure out how to use filezilla.

Why not split the files into 300MB chunks and then upload them using that service? If it's 600MB, it shouldn't take more than two or three chunks.

because not all of them are that low, and i really don't want to go through the trouble of having to break up different stuff, considering the main reason i'm transfering these is because of low hard drive space.
and to copy and delete half of one is still sucking up much needed space.
and then there is upload time.

Bittorrent may be overkill for something like this, but if you have many gibibytes of files then it might be a good idea. The main reason to use Bittorrent is that you can stop and resume it as many times as you want. You still have to solve the NAT issue though.

For getting around a NAT, it really depends on the exact brand and model of router you're using.

Why not just burn it to a CD/DVD and then send it through mail to your friend?

i use nero to burn stuff, and either i'm not doing it right or something is wrong, because on videos it takes as long as the movie is to finish it.

and i wanted to get some experience with an ftp or some type of upload/download thing because i'm going to set up a website with featured media included in it.

I don't want to sound like a noob, but AIM always works fine for me. My friends and I use it all the time to send files.

If you burn it as a video DVD, it has to encode the file before it can burn it. If you burn it as straight data disc, it doesn't encode.

Dimi, first off, my respect is automatic for you, despite the fact that i don't know you, because you are a moderator and as far as i know, are well liked.

but i am talking about an at least 600meg file.
we both have broadband, but that's still a HUGE file to send even over aim.
it'd take forever....

Well, none of us here can magically make your internet connection faster, unless you mean that AIM transfers are throttled slower than other means of transferring files.

I'll usually send bigger files overnight. Or before I go out. Or even if you just leave them in the background while you're doing other stuff on the internet, it doesn't really get in the way much. Only problem would be if either of you have problems where you randomly get kicked offline. But even then, AIM usually picks up the download where it left off.

Well, thank you all.
i think i'll be attempting to figure out how to use filezilla, and go from there.

thanks again for all your help.
