I have a file (that's roughly 2 - 3 GB) that I need to move from my PC to my laptop. I don't have a USB of Wi-Fi available to me right now. But I do have Windows Server at my home. What would be the best way to move this file?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have the hardware, you could burn the file to a DVD and move it that way. IF you have a home network set up you could share the drive and copy it that way.

    If the PC and laptop are in the same place, you can use cross LAN cable/Ethernet crossover cable to transfer/move the file.

    You don't say in the question, since you said that have Windows Server at home,my assumption is is that both the desktop and the laptop can see the server and the same area's on the server. At this point I would create a folder on the server, copy the file to the server folder, verify that it copied correctly to the server, then copy the file back to the laptop. There is another possibility here too. If the server see's both the desktop and the laptop at the same time, then both the laptop and desktop should also see each other because there is already a share setup on the server. If both the laptop and the desktop can see each other through the server and home network. and the shares are setup correctly between the two, then you can do a direct copy of the file from the desktop to the laptop.

    Moreover, if the both systems have internet connection, you can use Ammyy Admin/Teamviewer for transferring files.

    Other options like cloud storage or even possibly sending via email if you get desperate.

    While if you send data through email system, keep in mind, almost all  email clients have a quota to send any file, that depends on vendors. That is a particular bytes they can support, like 5gb, 25gb, 10gb, even 2gb also, It depends on which email client you are using now. For that case, you may zip the data and send.
