You place us in a difficult position.

Forum Policy is not to help with users who use P2P like uTorrent, Limewire, etc, for downloading copyrighted and pirated files such as music, films, commercial software, and so on.

Piracy and Copyright is an oft-used term, but the experience in these forums is that, generally, P2P users use these applications for just such purposes.

Because of that, we are reluctant to give help in any form.

Except in this particular case, it's a followup to another question about emailing a 700MB file, and I suggested that they try bittorrent.

I can't say for certain the file in question isn't copyrighted, but it seems like a case where the benefit of the doubt should be given.

Hmm. A good point.

I had thought of that, but I had assumed from the OP's reply here;
that that issue had been resolved using an online file store at

I even checked out that web site and saw the reference to P2P users.

If Sanguine_about_denouement would care to explain more, then perhaps we can help. As it stands I am reluctant to do so.

default download path
double click
browse and select a new path

just remember:
P2P of pirated material is both illegal
and hazardous to your (PC) health
