I have an 800MB file that I need to share to multiple people. I'm guessing ~10,000 will download it.

I purchased extra space on Google Docs. Can Google Docs handle this or should I look into another service?

Here's Google's response: Google Docs size limits.

As long as you upload the file as is (don't convert to Google format) you should be fine with a free account.

  • I was wondering what kind of messed-up, government secrets would make an 800GB document! In that case, provided you upload it as is (don't convert to Google format), you'll be fine with a free account. Answer updated... – Hand-E-Food Oct 6 '11 at 4:43

You should use BitTorrent as a mean for information dissemination for a file that big of a size to tens of thousands of people.

800GB * 10000 is 8 petabytes worth of bandwidth. BitTorrent's peer-to-peer technology will help to alleviate the huge cost of the bandwidth and storage needed.

Edit:

My suggestion remains the same for a 800MB file.
