    Ok so i know theres emailing files, and i know theres aim....
    But is there another way i can share files with a friend?...with privacy of course

    I have drop box for work and i tried to create another folder and invite my friend to it, but would people from work still be able to view what is in the folder that i only sent a share invite to my friend?

    Also is it possible to connect to her macbook maybe using an FTP program like Filezilla? and i can just upload files to her comp and she do the same to mine?

    Thanks,
    Mario

    Do you have mobileme and an iDisk? I usually send files to people that way because MSN is way too slow.

    It would help to know what two computers you're transferring between, and where they are relative to each other.

    Barring that, there's FTP, direct FW link (target disk mode), thumb drive, burn a CD, USB drive, NAS, the list goes on and on.

    You should both download teamviewer. This is the best way I have found to transfer files. It's free for personal use and it is secure because a new password is generated everytime the program is opened (unless you set one). This way you can also give remote support if the person you want to share with ever has problems with their mac. Try it out
