i came accross this site when searching for free stuff at tucows. Its usefull for those who facing problems with big file size to transfer. According to their website:

" The old file transfer standard – file transfer protocol or FTP – lacks secure transfer, requires account administration, is difficult to set up, and is complicated to use.
Here is a better way:

Secure. The transfer is 128-bit SSL encrypted from end-to-end. Auto or manual file deletion. Notifications go to a password protected email account.
Economical. No server to maintain. No additional software to keep updated. No employee or customer training expense. Low administrative expense.

Easy to set up. No hardware or software to install. We assist with the set-up.
Simple to use. Sender makes a couple of clicks and the file uploads. We notify the recipient the file is available. The recipient clicks on a couple of links to download the file. The recipicent does not need a SendThisFile® account."
Now, what are you waiting for? its worth to register and try because its FREE!
