|You need to select a list of some of the files in the folder so that the max size that can be sent in the email is not exceeded, and send more than one email to that person. |
Or, if the folder has subfolders, you could try attaching some of those, depending on their size.
XP has a built in program that makes *.zip files (compressed files or compressed archives of a list of files) . Any computer that has XP or above (2000 or above ?) can open those *.zip files. If you don't have anything else that can make *.zip files, you can use that program to make one *.zip file from a selected list of files.
Select the files by holding down Ctrl while clicking on them. Move the mouse cursor slowly, don't move it at all while clicking (otherwise you will make copies of the files in the same folder - those will be listed at the end of the list of files at first, then they will be listed alphabetically after you have gone out of the folder - Copy of...).
When you have selected all the files you want to, RIGHT click on the highlighted files and select Add to Zip or similar - type a name for the file, note where the file is made (in the same folder as the list of files by default - at first it will be at the end of the files in the folder, then it will be listed alphabetically after you have gone out of the folder ) , or choose to save it in a different location.
Hold your mouse cursor over the *.zip file to see it's size to make sure it isn't too big.
Then use your email program and select that *.zip file as an attachment. .
Or you could try making a *.zip file of the entire folder, hold your mouse cursor over the *.zip file to see it's size to make sure it isn't too big.
" RIGHT click on the highlighted files and select Add to Zip or similar "
I have installed WinZip 7 - it may not say Add To Zip for the built in program but it will say something similar.
