    How would this be done fast?
    I'm transferring my Minecraft server folder to my friend as he wants to host it since he has more ram on his computer. We're using TeamViewer to transfer and it's taking FOREVER to transfer my 1.82GB folder.

    Is there a speedier way to do this?

    Load it up on your USB stick/HD drive and give it to him that way? Or burn it on a DVD?

    Well, I was thinking about the USB stick, but I wouldn't be able to give it to him until tomorrow, and the transfer will be done in 13 hours... :P So I could leave it on overnight, except we want it transferred faster. :/

    That means you'd have to archive it, wait while it's uploading and then the other person can download it.
    http://ge.tt/ would be better since they can download while you upload.

    But there isn't much you can do about your upload speed anyway.

    try packing it in .rar or .iso that will be a bit faster with uploading

    Rar it up, make a torrent for it. Send torrent file to friend. Have you friend start the torrent. Wait. Much faster than Team Viewer.

    Lol. Since their already transfering and are willing to wait overnight. Wait overnight. If not go to him the next day. Whats the point in all of this if it requires him to stop the already ongoing transfer

    If you are transfering over the internet and your internet upload speed is slow, you cant do anything about that, its gonna take a while.

    Burn the shit on dvd or use a usb key.

    Actually torrents are very slow and inefficient for 1-1 transfers, they're made for swarms.
    And if the limit is his upload speed a 1-1 torrent is just going to make it worse, what with all the traffic overhead.
