I noticed that Daniel had to send a large file to another member the other day and had to send several emails to accomplish this. Here is an alternative.

Dropbox files can be accessed online from any computer. Also, it can be installed on your iPhone or Android gadget.

The free version allows 2 gigabytes of files to be synchronized. If you need more, you can pay for an upgrade. You can get 50GB or 100GB for $10 and $20 a month. Average users shouldn't need to pay. Files are deleted after 30 days.

Just wanted to say that ducky sent me a large amount of files with this and it worked very well. Took a while at my download speed, but I got them. Pretty neat tool. Give it a try, folks. Beats having to break files apart.

I've seen this option in a couple of Linux distro's I have tired recently but I haven't heard of anyone using it until now. Thanks for the info ducky & Kenny.

Been using dropbox to share files between home and work for two years. Even shared a disc image (700 mb) with my sis in Indiana with dropbox. While it was slow it was still faster than overnight mail and cost much less.
