hello i have xp pro with 150k,what is the limit for transfering files ? i know e-mail is out for large files,but whai is the limit for messenger? i have a file just under a gig with photos,video,etc,i wish to send to a family member,is this possible,and if so,how long will it take approx,?(1 minute or 10 minutes or 1 hour?)they are on 56k,i am on 150,but soon upgrading to 600,thanks.peter.
have i got my maths wrong i thought it would take more than a few cds? 700mb on a cd,so 700kb would be 10 wouldnt it?i had reckoned on 13 which is why i asked the question about messenger.i know a dvdr would do it,but i aint got one.peter.
with somebody on 56k it would take a good 12hours or so to get 1gb esp as they are getting it off you who has not got a lightning fast connection. couple this with disconnection from the net and stuff like that and youre either gonna have to set up an ftp or send it in the post
