Two ideas. Send your project in much smaller chunks. First, do a super small send, say 1% of the total project.
If you can send a much smaller size file, then you can begin to experiment with just how large of a file you can send before you have problems.
Another trouble shooting aspect to consider is the use of newer software programs with more established ones. Existing editing software may not be future compatible with something that just came out recently.
The perpetual need for software designers to improve the true resolution and compatibility capabilities of their software programs before it is discovered that the first couple versions of their softwareware were substandard, sadly makes the non-linear world go round and round.
If you are able to parse up your project into much smaller chunks, maybe you can notate if certain small chunks did not have some type of software plug in whereas another portion of your project did. Eventually you may be able to isolate what it is that is causing the hang-up.
I always tell people, don't ever wait until your project is finished before doing the type of "sends" that will be required once the project is done.

I have found https://www.wetransfer.com/ to be very reliable. Up to 2GB per transfer, unlimited quantities per month.
thanks, I will check them out. The 536gig file was the full res master which I attempted to deliver via hard drive, but it got wiped or corrupted in transit. thanks again
