computer geek question

I need to e-mail a folder full of music to one of my instructors so she can use it while teaching in my studio in my absence. But both Yahoo and Gmail will only let me attach one song at a time. Is there a way to attach an entire folder? Please help. Thanks!


You can pack all the songs together as one big file, using WinZip or WinRar. Your instructor needs the same program to unpack the one big file into the separate music files, again.

I recommend WinRar.

And in case that the packed file is too big to attach to an e-mail, you can upload the file to SendSpace or MegaUpload and just e-mail your instructor the link to where the file has been uploaded.
Or yousendit.
I would zip all the files and then upload them but that would go over the amount. So use YOUSENDIT http://www.yousendit.com . I use it all the time to transfer soundtrack work to and from Los Angeles.
Useless data...that icon does funny things to my biochemisry.
Another alternative is to burn the files to cd (in mp3 ~ or other ~ format) and leave the cd there for your instructor.

Or copy them to a USB drive or Memory card...
These are all excellent suggestions and I've been wondering the same thing myself. Thanks for posing the question!
I like 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) as an alternative to WinRar and the like. It's an open-source Windows program, it's free, and it's easy to use even if you have no real idea what you're doing (like me). WinRar offers a trial version, but it's not very functional until you pay for it.
