Best Way to Share 500MB File

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I need to send a 500MB file (510, actually) to my sister back at home.

I'm pretty sure my school blocks rapidshare because every time I try to upload the file (using a premium account) it starts the upload, then fails.

I thought about setting up a torrent but is there any way to make it so only she can get it? I don't want this to be public.

Thanks in advance.

Create a private tracker, then email it to her. What torrent download manager do you have?

I use uTorrent.

How do I create a private tracker?

I've created the torrent but didn't fill anything in when it asked for trackers.

Best way is a hosting service, such as Filefront or Filetube (or whatever it is).
Another possibility would be an FTP between your PC and her PC.

Or another way (extremely slow) is to set up a remote desktop (TeamViewer) and transfer the file from there.

Turn it into a RAR, create the most random password you can think of, upload the RAR as a torrent, tell your sister to download it, give her the password.

I have RARed it. It was originally 580MB.

I'd prefer that it not be online anywhere public.

Will these sites let me upload for free?

It's really simple. http://torrentfreak.com/how-to-create-a-torrent/ Just send her the .torrent file.. then delete the torrent when she's done.. Fastest solution..
