Hi,

How big is the file? there are many services out there that allow the transferring of large files for free.

If you can advise how big the file is we can possibly find a service that allows files of that size... other option would be to zip the file up into separate parts (i.e. if the file was really big, lets say 10GB, the original file could be zipped up into 5 x 2GB parts and transfer through https://www.wetransfer.com/)

It is possible to create an FTP server (Free too) but seems a lot of work for one file, you would need a PC/Server to install the FTP Server on and you would also need to set up Dynamic DNS access to it.

Regards,
Jamie

Hello JDobbsys and thank you for your suggestion

I realized that that task is to big for my knowledge. I did try to install a free FTP server and end up with a lot of junk.

I will look to see if using a cloud drive could do the job
