6. Cut it up
Cut it up into 10 slides each and then do it. Also you probably have graphics in it since its so big. Use the option to compress the graphics, the zip the file and then transfer it.

JR Split File is designed to turn your big files into smaller ones.

After the files are split, a BAT file is created. To restore your files to the way they were before, simply double-click the BAT file. Yes folks, it is that simple.

7. I have a little device called a Jump drive.
You stick it in one of the USB ports and it becomes another drive. You can drag and drop files, then remove the device, take it to another machine and drag and drop it to a folder on that PC. It holds the equivalent of about 4 CDs and is an awesome way to transport data in your pocket. I got mine at Radio Shack.

copied a big file to multiple floppies.
