We are having a LAN Party tonight and everytime we have one we run into the same problem, trying to copy files over the network. Typically we have one person sharing and a few copying, thus creating a bottleneck. Then those who finally get the file after an hour of copying start to share it themselves for the others who have yet to get the copy. And then another hour goes by.

Is there any better method of going about this, and if so how would we go about it? One thing I was thinking is copying the file to everyone at on time by multicasting it but I have very little experience with that and have never heard of multicast programs made for just single files or directories. They all seem to be for imaging programs. Are there any easy to use Windows multicast programs other there that would help us fix this problem?

Does anyone have any ideas as to how we can do things more efficiently whether its multicasting or anything else? And if you do have an idea, how should we do it?

What type of files are you trying to copy to these pcs?
Place the files on a thumb drive and copy them over if this is possible
