Recommend a script that uses a form to upload to a server, etc.

I'm looking for a really good form script to purchase.

I'm working with several companies that need to transfer large graphic files from a local PC to my server and back to a different PC.

I've messed around with a couple scripts already and they either aren't working or are not very robust.

Here's what we need to do:
1.  My Client's Customers need to upload large graphic files (some in MAC formats from MACS) to my server, using an online PHP form.
2.  Once the file is uploaded - I'd like to email my client that his customer has uploaded a file; and I'd like to send my client's customer an email saying that the file was uploaded successfully.

That would be great.

I've had such good luck with EE script recommendations . . . so I hope you know of a really good one.

Many thanks, April

    Well, the first link's page isn't in English.
    I really liked the second links script - but when I tried to download the file at - I get a 404 error.
    The third site doesn't seem to have any upload scripts.

    I'd really like to purchase a script that has some bells and whistles and good documentation and support.

    Any more ideas?

    concerning the first link you can download it from here (the link near the homepage zip) :
    the examples in it is in english (example_en.php)

    for the third you can find the download button in the middle of the page
    (I think you will need to create a free subscription before downloading)
    zip :
    or tar.zg :

    Hi.  thanks.  I was able to download the second one this time.  Don't know why I was blocked before.

    So now I've got a couple of script to try.

    Yeah, I looked through Hotscripts, but hadn't found anything really fancy.

    Looks like I'll just have combine a cool form script I already have with the PHP upload function.

    Appreciate your help.  Now I can stop searching - now that I know I'm not missing anything.
