Post Recommend online storage and file hosting
Whilst cleaning up the forum I had to delete a lot of out-of-date links from the Members Section.

Can you please use this thread to discuss preferred hosts for online storage and file hosting - ideally these will have no expiry or are at least active over 30 days.

:googlyeyes:

I've been using MediaFire for ages now and I don't think a single link has expired yet...

MediaFire all the way. dunno if they're making any money out of it, but i wouldn't even bother looking at another host. the only drawback i've found with MediaFire is - for a free user - the maximum file size is limited to 100mb. while this normally isn't a problem, is can p#ss you off if what you are trying to up is over 100mb. i've over come this by either reducing the bit rate of the file or splitting it up. the links to some files i've upped to MediaFire have been ok for about 3 years and have had over 1000 downloads!

Mediafire is by far the best available. Rapidshare and other such hosts encourage you a little too much to pay for the service either by making u wait to download files or by limiting the amount of downloads u can have active at one time. Mediafire doesnt involve any of this making it the most user friendly and convenient for free users.

Mediafire for sure.

Rapidshare sucks, really restrictive on number of downloads.

You can also easily swap files over to your account from someone else's mediafire to yours.

Here's my mediafire account anyway, go brockwild!

Drop Box is another good one - though obviously you don't get the streaming goodness of Soundcloud.

I have to admit, I LOVE Soundcloud. Don't use anything else these days. :yumyum:

Only thing missing from it is the sociable side - they haven't really nailed that yet imo
