Just yesterday I was thinking about just this thing, and my suggestion is the implementation of a local HTTP server. Fire it up. Create a directory. Save one or more files in the directory. Optionally apply some authentication to the directory. Share URL(s). Wait for files to be downloaded. Shutdown the server. Yes, the process requires some practice, and local networking policies may prohibit such things, but it costs zero dollars, does not require third parties, and one has total control over their own data. --Eric Morgan
