    From my server in zipped format and upload them to a new server. Server won't allow SSH access. The file size is 60 gb and i only have 40 gb available on my computer. I have internet download manager and cute ftp. Or is there another free program.

    Server is hasling me about upgrading so I'm going elsewhere.

    Thx

    You can try:

    hossa.org

    just Register and you can transload files from server to another via http or ftp.

    If you have the money for a 64GB zip drive ($150+) I'd say use that, but then what are you going to do with it? You might as well add a larger HD to your computer --- it would be cheaper, unless you're dealing with a laptop.

    Or you could go with an external HD --- you probably need one anyway to back up your computer.

    Do both servers have ftp enabled? You could do it command line from server #1:

    Code:
    > cd /source_directory
    > ftp server_2_URL
    ftp> bi
    ftp> cd /target_directory
    ftp> put giant_zipped_file.gz
    ftp> quit
    >
    60 GB is probably going to take forever, though. and ftp may time out in the meantime.

    Try splitting your giant zipped file:

    Code:
    > split -b1000m giant_zipped_file.gz giant
    This will split your file into 60 or so 1 GB chunks with names (giantaa, giantab, giantac, ...)

    Now you can transfer your sixty files from one server to the other.

    On server number two, you'll have to piece your zip file back together:

    Code:
    > cat giantaa giantab giantac ... > giant_zipped_file.gz
    And then you can unzip as normal.
