Where to upload a very large file

I am looking for a service to where I can upload an 18GB zip folder. Any good suggestions of sites you have used before. There are many in Google but which ones are any good.

I only know one service with true "no limit" file size policy, the GigaSize.

You get 1 TB storage, starting from $5 a month (one year plan) or $10 (one month plan). Also available a lifelong "pay once and forget" plan for $199.

Thanks Kari. I really did not want to pay for it. It was for uploading a tutorial - yes you heard right, an 18GB tutorial. I'll beat your record, LOL. One file is an image of a whole system. I don't even know how long such an upload will take. Maybe I am dreaming.

I have never heard of a free service allowing such a huge upload file size.

I have some parked domains, if you want I could create you a subdomain type whs.karisdomain.com and give you access to UCP to upload. However, I do find the idea not very good, I would rather edit the tut (Part 1: Preparations, Part 2: Install and so on) and upload each part as its own file. Additionally, all videos only as links to a Vimeo / YouTube video, not embedded in tut itself.

The problem is the system image. That is 15GBs and is the heart of the matter. That is one file that cannot be split.

Another way would be to create a self-extracting archive and split it to 2 GB parts; the user needs to download all parts to same folder but then simply run the .exe file to unpack it. Example screenshot from WinRar:

If you select this option I can offer you a storage if you have no cloud storage where at the moment is free space for such a huge archive.

That looks promising. I still have to make a couple of days work to complete the system setup. I'll get back to you when I am ready.

OK. The easiest would be if I gave you temporary access to one of my OneDrives, I have a few available with over 200 GB available at the moment.
