Free Online FTP storage?
 
Im switching computers and thot the easiest way to transfer stuff to the new computer might be just to ftp it up/down.
I have found a bunch of free online storage sites but they all seem to have stupid drag and drop, one file at a time interfaces. Anyone know of a service that offers free ftp storage?

Get a free trial from a web-host provider, that would give you FTP.

How much storage do you need?

Also, I personally would use an external hard drive for that.

Yea actually you would better use an external hard disk .

But I guess you want to use FTP because you don't have a hard disk ..


Ok look I'll tell you something better which will save you time and money and is pretty easy to do.

1.Make a torrent on the 1st computer , and in that torrent include everything you want to transfer. Make the torrent private.

2.transfer in an email attachment or USB flash storage the torrent file to the other computer.

3.Now every time you turn on both computers the data will transfer.

I think using a torrent is the best, since you also can freely shutdown and reboot computers, while with FTP I guess you'll lose most progress if there is some blackout.

I think 4shared has such offer and free up to 20 GB, there can be other servers also (ftp upload and wget or torrent download)
