Any free applications that would allow to upload large files (4/5 GB) to the cloud?

    I am interested in storing videos up in the cloud, most of the known software wont allow transfers of individual files larger than 2 GB. Is there a free way to circumvent this limitation? As I understand there are 2 possible bottlenecks. Limitation to individual file size, AND limitation of total individual transfers even if each and every file is under 2 GB.

    I would appreciate any knowledgeable answers on these particular issues I do have sites that accept up to 50 GB storage space. Yahoo mail even takes limitless BUT all sites i know of wont let you transfer over 2GB per file

    Thank you

    I am not sure what limitation you are referring to as far as an application goes. I would think it would be more of a limitation imposed by the place the file is being uploaded to.

    Agree with Rockn. This is more of a limitation of the Website hosting the file. You are going to have to pay for a service that gets you 4GB file uploads. I don't know of anything free off hand.

    I am also aware of ISP's that limit the amount of bandwidth used and limit upload and downloads to a set limit and charge above that limit.
