Try a file upload/download service that supports resuming uploads and downloads. Even FTP supports that. I thought Dropbox supported pause/resume with their rich client, but I've never tried with huge files.

 

Your best bet might be to find an internet cafe nearby that will do it for you, or even one anywhere in the country and use overnight courier. Still faster than shipping to Europe.

 

 

 

 

Yes I believe the problem is with pause/resume but I'm not techie enough to troubleshoot further.

Sounds like D/Box is playing silly buggers with the files,

 

have you tried Google Drive or another cloud service?

 

 

no, not yet

Upload to Amazon S3 with CloudBerry, which has chunked upload (aka resume) function. Download will be pretty fast for them too. Alternately S3 browser or some other product. Some may upload in parallel which would make better use of your bandwidth. Getting an AWS account is easy, using S3 is easy enough.

 

 

This sounds like an interesting solution. I have never heard of Amazon S3 or Cloudberry so will need to investigate further.

Hmmm, well in that case, strange things are afoot.  Have you tried contacting Dropbox and explaining the issue?

 

 

No not yet, thought I'd ask here first as some of the "help" desks I've found to be far from helpful.

Amazon Web Services is the biggest cloud provider in the world. S3 is Simple Storage Service. It's basically a web server that lets you upload and file and serves it to anyone you allow it to. It's more than that, but that's what it is to you. It's also free for the first year, within preset limits, which you'll probably go over, but it'll be a discount.

um just outta curiosity how big is your dropbox box 

 

 

 

from dropbox's help page

 

 

 

File size limits

 

 

Files uploaded via the desktop app or mobile apps have no file size limit.

 

Files uploaded on dropbox.com must be 20 GB or smaller.

 

All files uploaded to your Dropbox must be smaller than your storage quota. For example, if your account has a storage quota of 2 GB, you can upload one 2 GB file or many files that add up to 2 GB. If you are over your storage quota, Dropbox will stop syncing.
