Got some big 500 megabyte files on my PC I'd like to make available to friends via the internet. Saw Microsoft IIS, and some software like Easy File Share.
Tried putzing with these and either didn't have any luck or got too confused.

Any suggestions?

These are HD Divx kids soccer video files so I would be OK uploading them to some free storage site but 500 seems to big to upload. Any suggestions? They have music to them so YouTube will kill the audio. Vimeo is good but I think I don't think I can get 1080 on Vimeo.

Either way is good, either they can download it from my PC or I can upload it to some site and I can provide the URL to my friends and they can download it. The files aren't personal or anything.

I am trying Opera Unite now. Looks pretty neat. Haven't completely verified it yet.

What about Dropbox? You could post it in a public folder and give anyone access (just email them link) or put it in a protected folder (they'd need a Dropbox account to access). How many gigs of files do you need hosted?

You are the king. Will try that too.

I am trying A Drive.

It looks like Opera Unite requires me to have that program running in order for people to access the files on my PC.

Vimeo actually looks pretty darn good, probably 90% as good as the HD video itself.

Right now I need about one gig, for two files about 500Megs each. They are video files, one is divx the other is wmv. I put up both because I think divx looks a little better but a lot of people might not have the divx codec installed, that's why I am making an wmv version available too.
