Peer-to-peer file-sharing (P2P) services are good to connect small number (around 10) of computer and places where high level of security is not required. Popular P2P program Like BitTorrent, LimeWare, Shareaza, etc. are very fast approaches for file download and sharing.

-Create a user account.
-Select files to share and access shared files.

Don’t upload (or download) copyrighted material and business info/sensitive data. Also, make sure your computer’s security software is up-to-date.

Method 4. Transfer Big Files through FTP

FTP, File Transfer Protocol, was the best tool for transferring big files decades ago. It is used for public-file sharing (especially for things like Linux kernel source repositories). FTP is very tricky to get it working behind a NAT and many FTP sites are heavily used and required several attempts before connecting.

-Get a FTP service on green and safe site.
-Upload large files to the FTP server. You’d better keep a copy for the files.
-Customize parameters. You need set max. number of connections, account, password, basic info, authority etc.
-Log in the account to download files.

Note: After you shared the large files successfully, delete the file for security.
