Is there a way to send a Maya Prject folder online

A friend of mine and I are working together on a project but we've been doing our share on two separate projects. I need to find someway to give my work to him but I cant think of a way to send him my entire maya project folder with all my scene stuff, sourceimages, images etc. Its too big to email, is there ANY other way to possibly send this stuff to him? Please help.

do you know about Dropbox?

I have heard of dropbox but dont really know how it works. Do you just sign up, make an account, put your stuff in it somehow and then have your friend sign on as you to pick it up?

^ Pretty much!

Yes, that's basically it - although you don't have to have your friend sign in as you - you can make shared folders that both of you (with your separate dropbox accounts) can access.

Sign up to dropbox here

If you sign up with this link (or your friend does, or better yet, both!) you'll get an extra 500MB of space! Full disclosure: so will I

Thanks everyone, I made an account there a short while ago, and demoed a maya project folder through it and everything opens up just fine. I'm definitely going to break this badboy in (I did go through the trouble of making an account afterall)

@Royg Sorry man, if I read your comment a little earlier I'd have used your link to sign up and given you free space, but I actually went to check the site out a little after I responded to the first guy. Still, thanks for your reply!

Again, thanks everyone.
