I'm tring to upload with ftp to my server, (using Transmit for MAC). But my Internet Connection is not stable enough. It's going to take 24 hours, which is ok, but something always happens that cuts it off

I also tried with YouSendIt, which I like because if the file gets cut off, you can resume later. But their max, even for paying customers, is 6GB.

I'm think of going with MegaUpload. But they only have software for PC. But I could deal with that but transfer the file first to my PC.

Anyway, any other suggestions, lemme know

Let me know. Thanks

If sending via the internet is really your only option, then maybe something like WinRAR (http://rarlabs.com/download.htm) which allows you to compress the file into chunks.

That way you can send all the chunks.

Some FTP tools will also allow you to resume a failed transfer, but I think that the server needs to advertise this facility to the tool for it to be selectable.

Using WinRAR, you could create 1GB chunks (or whatever size you want).

The user would require the freeware UnRAR or you could make a chunked self extracting version.

winscp would be another option.  I would definatley split the file using HJSplit or winrar.

I think http://www.techtalkpoint.com/articles/how-to-create-multi-segment-compressed-archives-in-mac-osx/ answers all the questions.

"Segments" seem to be the terminology used.
