Hi everyone! I thought I would share a little tidbit of information – this is for anyone who uploads files and shares the download links. I would never want to spam my fellow scrappers with useless information, but I felt that this was something many of us could benefit from:)
I personally do not like sites like 4shared to share my downloads. I do have my own VPS server and have quite a bit of bandwidth allowance. Here is my problem though: Because I have a lot of traffic coming to my site for freebies and some of the files are quite large – I have almost reached my bandwidth limit in 3 days! WOW! I’m not complaining:) I LOVE sharing stuff for free! But I can’t invest more cash in my already pricey server costs – so I went hunting for a reliable online file storage site which would allow me to share my links without problem.
So – I found this:
Always have your stuff when you need it with @Dropbox. 2GB account is free!
It’s awesome and free as long as it is under 2GB:) They have a software that installs a folder which automatically synchs the files you drop into it, and then you can grab the download link and share it) They also have a link shortening option when you grab the public download link.
So now I solved my bandwidth problem:) I completely recommend using Dropbox.
