If both PC's have an Internet connection "Windows Live Mesh" may be an option. You have to sign up for a windows live ID but its all free. It's part of Windows Live Essentials.

Access your PC from anywhere with Windows Live Mesh - Explore Windows- Microsoft Windows

But that would count against the OP's data allotment from his ISP which he specifically wants to avoid.

Yeah, I know but unless the two PC's are in the same room good luck with that. Thats not meant to be sarcastic but I think thats as free as you're going to get. Its just an option. :)

The original poster is going to have to use the net one way or another. I find DropBox good for moving large files (free for 2GB storage). You just upload and send your buddy the url.
