Hello:

I friend of mine needs to upload several big files (videos around 20 gb each) so I can download and work with them. Now, the issue is that his Internet connection is slow and he can't leave the PC on during night, so we need a program that can resume the file. He tried with Google Drive but it restarts from zero. The files are .mpg

Do you know how this can be done? If I have to pay for the space (cloud) no problem.

Thanks

Make a torrent and agree the hours when you're both going to be online... It's just as slow but at least you both can resume after a recheck.

 

Sending an USB via snail mail is maybe a better and faster option?

 

Hope this helps!  :wink:

Thats a Movie Bluray for that size , hope you have a fast PC to work on them...

 

But as  GNULINUX stated , i think USB { Bubble Wrapped } is the go and maybe by a Courier to get it On Time.

 

Aussie Post ? May never get there.

We don`t need to be online. He has to upload the files. Once in the server, I can download them without any issue.

 

The USB or many DVD's would be the last option as we are in different continents and I wanted to avoid the Customs issue specially if they are going to verify the info.

 

Thanks.

I find incredible that in 2016 there is not an online solution for that.

You need to be both online, there is no server with torrents... and since he will be the only seeder, he has to be online for you to be able to download anything... Read more about how torrents work here:wink:

Ahh ok, so then this option is impossible. Yeah, I have idea what torrent are, I used to download mp3 with a software that had to close by law requirement, I don`t remember it name and lately Pirate Bay  :guitar:

I used to use GetRightPro.  It had a great resume feature -- as long as the involved servers did not mind [read: did not dork with] such operations.  I believe one can find a similar utility more designed for Windows 7-10.

I just want to say that nothing is wrong with using torrents.  Just because BitTorrent is widely used to pirate media, it doesn't make the technology itself bad or illegal.  There are many legitimate uses for torrents.

How much RAM would one need to have in order to work on ONE 20 GB video file?
