If you are having a large file which needs to be send to your friends who is located at some distance from you, you may try Megaupload or Rapidshare like platforms to share your file online. But in that case, first of all you will have to upload the file on these platforms and then tell you friend to download the same. As your computer is connected to Internet, then you may try sending the files directly to your friend using Instant Messengers (IM). But that will again take so much time and memory to handle large files and you don’t have option to download files using Download Manager. Here is a tool to share files from your computer to your friend by using simple sharing technique.
