I want to sent 4GB+ files to someone, preferably directly. We are currently trying skype but this seems to not reach our maximum potential up/down speed by a long shot and is stuck at 172MB after 30 minutes.
My upload is 6Mb/s so according to my calculations
4000MB / .75MB/s = 5333 seconds / 60 = 89minutes it would take about 1,5 hour at best (Speedtest is stable at 6Mb/s).
I am aware of wetransfer (up to 2GB) and a lot of cloud storage services, all up to 2GB free. Since i do not need my files to be stored in the cloud i am looking for a much simpler solution. Just a program that connects our computers and is maximized for sharing files between two people would do.
My final resort would be to cut up my files with an archiver, upload one of many parts, wait for my friend to download it, delete the content and upload another part. This is a bit of a hassle.
Please don't mark this duplicate to questions which ask for files up to 2GB, i would not have asked here if that was my case.
We both use windows 7.
