Hmmm....

Hiya

Rapid Share.de is popular here byfar but why?

I go there, I'm deluded with adverts, have to chose between free and pay downloads and have got to wait for minutes and more before a download starts. Not every Jane and or Joe is going to figure out their layout. I'm not bothering with trying to upload either. They state webhosting yet not a link exists to read about hosting a website. It states, 30,000,000 sized files. Files stay until you delete them or 30 days of inactivity.

With http://www.yousendit.com

1 gigabyte of transfer to multiple email addresses, no adverts, no pay, no wait and privacy is secure as well as they check for viruses. So, all I'd do is send the link to me and whoever else and post the link here at this board or wherever else. It stays on their servers for 7 days. Not a hassle at all. Go to where the link is at yousendit.com, the download starts in 20 seconds via auto select unless you start it first. The file can be deleted by the sender. Also yousendit.com hails from Silicon Valley, California, USA, the mother land of all Windows PC operating software and countless others worldwide.

....................and your vote is?

I'm getting really pissed off with RapidShare as it keeps saying I'm downloading files when I'm not. Then my quota for the hour is used up by downloading files I'm not, so I can't download anymore! I've tried clearing my cookies, but that don't work either...

Any other tips?...

How to cure the "it says I have downloaded when I havent" problem...

Buy the cheapest premium package. It's about £7. Then you can download up to 8 files at once and it solves the problem.

The reason there's a problem with it when you're on the free system is because some ISPs put a proxy server (or something like that) between you and their site. So infact the IP address that they receive isn't just from your computer. It's from hundreds of computers. Hence it says you've been downloading when you haven't. The premium service isn't done on IP, its done on cookies. Problem solved. For £7 I guess it's worth it.

I had to do that to get it so that I could download files. But there again I'm not surprised I couldn't download anything easily. NTL (my ISP) are crap, have always been crap and always will be crap. But they provide fast downloads and that outweighs the disadvantages.

RapidShare. For the guys with slow connection it's more good than YSI

The bad thing about yousendit, is that it allows a limited number of downloads...(i guess very few downloads)for example, days ago, in this forum, someone upload the KAMPUCHEA 1979 concert, but when i tried to download it, an awful message appeared to me "File/Server unavailable"... something like that... (what a great bootleg!!!)

But, every time i want to download something from rapidshare, it's very fast... and i've never had any error message!

... and your opinion is....

bye!

Well at this moment I prefer YouSendIt just because Rapidshare is becoming very frustrating. I mean it just sucks that you have to wait a whole hour just for some louzy 15 MB!

Mmmmh the terms of usage kinda bug me, they seem really strickt about certain things. I'm gonna give it a shot though, I just hope they don't think I'm uploading official stuff.

I recently found new file hosting site: Momoshare, yeah very funny name, but it's really good. It doesnt have the 1file/hour limit like Rapidshare.

I prefer Rapidshare.
That's why I bought a premier membership.

Disconnect from the internet, and then connect again. You will have a new IP address. Do this every time you want to download a new file.
