split the file with 7zip or winrar(file size depends on host you choose)

then upload to a file sharing site like 4shared.com

give download links to your friend

alternatively you can create a torrent with a program like uTorrent and give your friend the torrent info

Yousendit is too costly for me. Dropbox free version only supporting 2GB

pretty much all the major archive tools have a split archive feature.

google docs is free and each file can be 1GB so it's another option once file is chuncked
and I'm pretty sure can store 5 1GB archive files.

7Zipping will lower the capacity need for sure...

I will either burn a classic 4.7GB DVD and ship it to my friend or send it by FTP (about 13h upload time @ 110KBs) using this kind of free site http://dl.free.fr/ (french language website allowing up to 10GB by FTP without any warranty and with 30 days unused files deleted automatically)

use hjsplit to split the files of smaller size
Sky drive offers 25gb of free storage

go to egynte.com   Their entire business is data transfer in large quantities, and I've used their inexpensive service to transfer hundreds of GB at a pop.   It utilizes data compression and java front ends to browsers and such to make it painless.

It pretty much is a windows-explorer drag & drop and it is secure.   Also a free trial ;)
