    Are there any free reliable sites to send large files, like 60mb and up?

    My email account only allows 25mb attachments.

    All I know is Yousendit.com, but I think you have to pay there right?

    Any suggestions?

    If both you and the recipient has Microsoft live Ids (msn messenger Ids) then you can uw skyDrive (www.live.com you should be able to find it from there.

    Otherwise a lot of people use Dropbox, but I have not myself

    I still download art-related things from Mediafire.com, so I think that's pretty trusted. Hopefully the FBI doesn't take that down too. :p

    http://www.dropbox.com/

    Dropbox is free up to 2GB. Set up an account, it stores your files in a cloud server, you can invite anyone to your dropbox to download the file. It works in a browser and you can also download an application which allows it to mimic operating like a folder on your hard drive.

    I also recommend DropBox.

    Another recommendation for Dropbox. I use it all the time, never had any problems. And you have a choice between whether or not you want the file password-protected I usually don't bother, because the URL the system creates for you is so long and convoluted there's no way anyone could stumble across it accidentally ... but if the file is super sekret sensitive then I will go with the password.
