I want to transfer around 400Mb of files from one computer to another. The problem is that the one the files are on doesn't have a CD-R drive. Normally I would use MSN Messenger but for some reason it won't allow me to sign on on one computer (it says there is no connection)!
Basically I want to know if there's a program I can install on both or one computer that would let me send it to the other.
might even be worth just unplugging the hard disk and putting it in as a slave and copying the stuff. Say 30 minutes to pull it out, put it in out and in and not long to copy - less than an hour. Using floppies or broadband could take a day or two!
If worried about the hard disk drive, could always burn a CD for back up and just move the CD drive ... remember though, if it has no access to back up media what will you do if it goes pop and loses all that data!!
But a simple cross over cable for under a tenner and network them would, as mattyc_92 suggests be best.
