I need to send a 29 MB Zip file to my customer. I can send as split file using HJSplit. But the problem is that it's taking toooooooo much time to upload.

I tried GMail email attachment & www.Box.net uploading, where GMail is taking more than 30 minutes + for 5.8 MB split file uploading & it's still uploading.

www.Box.net is crashing browser for each upload tries (I use FireFox).

I have IE, FireFox & Opera browser.

Can you tell me a SURE & QUICKEST method to upload the 29MB file, either split ot unsplit, and then send it to my customer ?

Thanks in advance.

If it is something that you don't want others to actually get I would just send it via FTP.   Create a server on your machine, get the customer to connect and Bob is very much your mother's brother.

Serv-U I think is the name of one such program.  Good part is you won't have to worry about it falling into the wrong hands, or the Email bouncing because there isn't enough space in your customers inbox.  Plus it is free!

yeah i would approach it the same way as angus said.

Set up and FTP and have him go through it that way. Or just mail him a burned CD.

I'd recommend here : http://www.megaupload.com/

You don't need to setup an account or anything, just choose the file to upload.

Here's another site as well. http://www.uploading.com/
