    I have a folder that is 2.83 GB and need to get it to my friend. But i'm looking to send it to him over the web. We both have Comcast High Speed Internet (Cable).

    so whats the best FREE way to get it to him?
    i'm trying to avoid compressing and splitting the files up.

    thanks,
    TRBMan.

    http://filezilla.sourceforge.net for both a client and server for FTP. But no matter how you send it, it's going to take a long time.

    If you run the FTP server, they can download the files with an FTP client, a download manager, or even a browser, whenever they want. The advantage over sending the whole thing is that a broken connection doesn't mean that they need to start from scratch and download it all over again.
