Hey guys, got a quick question for you all. My girlfriend and I are seperated by about 2,000 miles while we are both doing research. We both have access to high speed internet and are wondering if there is any free (legit) software that would allow us to download large files (couple hundred mb) off one another. Neither of us have p2p on our computers and neither of us are interested in putting kazaa, limewire or the like on our computers. Anyone know of any download?

Or, is there another way for us to exchange files between our computers? I think people used to use IM to do such things, but think that you can no longer do such things. I appreciate any and all thoughts.

Most large FTP transfer programs are set up for businesses and therefore charge $$.

If you still wanted to go the e-mail route, then I'd get a Google "Gmail" account as one can send up to 10mb (email including any attachments) per message and one has a full gig of storage per account (I've several now...) That's the simplest and cheapest way to go. Most of the "free" FTP sites bombard you with ....xxxxxx.....

But I would also use a private encryption program for any sensitive data/information.


[Edit] I should have added that if you'd like an invitation to Gmail accounts, send me a PM via "BC" with the e-mail address to send them to you as I've still a few to share.

Thanks for your thoughts. Unfortunately the files we are talking about are larger than 10 mb. If worse comes to worse, we can just mail discs to one another; just hoping there is a way to avoid doing this.
