    I have a friend who owns a small print shop and was asking the best way to get a means to upload larger files (30mb to maybe like 500mb; too large to email) to some place he can easily retrieve it.

    On a standard hosting package would they run into bandwidth issues? Possibly a service might be the way to go depending on the cost? Just curious if someone has had any success and can speak to it.

    I am actually having this issue right now as well. One site I’m working on calls for large audio file uploads, but the host (godaddy) doesn’t allow it, I will be curious to see what kind of solutions come up.
    I do know that it can be done via FTP but i think that’s a pain…

    In this type of situation, I really think it’s best to use a third-party service. For any file transfers that I need to do between clients I create a folder for them in Dropbox and get them to use that.

    I think you can make a publicly uploadable form with http://www.box.net/
