Sharing is Caring

    I signed for Dropbox and i felt cool and easy.. Love it and feels lazy to try out other websites :) But still if anyone feels anyone better than Dropbox then Reply me :)

    • http://slodive.com/ SloDive

      My personal favorite is DropBox too.

      • http://www.1fichier.com Marc

        Did you tryied 1fichier.com ?

        • http://slodive.com/ SloDive

          Not yet. Thanks for suggesting, will try it out.

  • http://dpshots.com Uzair

    DrobBox and CloudApp are my favorites. You didn’t add box.net though.

    • http://slodive.com/ SloDive

      Oh yes, we missed that, will add in next round up, keep on suggesting.

        Well, I’m sure Box is fine. I’ve had a free Box account for years. None of my files ‘expired’. Free is all I can afford. Box is polished. But, alas, Box isn’t in the giving or sharing business. My pc bit the dust, so I was sort of pleased that I could listen to the music I uploaded to Box from my blog, via my netbook. When I discovered (today, June 9, 2011), to my horror, that the streaming quits after a few minutes, I tried again. A few times. I then emailed Box support (who have always been very prompt in replying, which I have always appreciated) who told me bluntly that since no one was using the feature – which worked perfectly, so go figure – they decided that keeping as they were evolving the product wasn’t worth the effort. I’m not techie, so I can’t say anything technical about that response.

        The streaming, prior to this, worked great, automatically playing music in a neat, clean and simple player on Box’s end. You could play a single file or else check a box that said ‘autoplay’ and the playlist would play and stop, rationally, at the conclusion of the last track. In my case, No one visiting my site ever bothered to use the feature. I only ever had it because it was something that helped make my site more interesting and appealing. The capability to dowload the mp3s I uploaded wasn’t what interested me.

        None of which matters now.

  • http://piotr.lemiesz.pl Piotr

    what about ubuntu one ? :)

  • http://knightvisiongames.com jim

    I would suggest Divshare.com

  • http://www.zakada.com Mike

  • http://dlewis23@veeapps.com dan

    I would suggest Uploadingit.com

  • Lupita Kitterman

    Thanks for sharing great information. I am looking for such contents so many times, your blog is very helpful.

  • I Know You

    I see lot’s of new competitor on the list except few like mediafire, badongo & filesend (both completely useless back in the past, can’t upload/download anything from it)
    but just like before, how long of them will last till next year and years and another year in the future. Lot’s of new “free” host sites, but lot’s of them died too within a year.

    while big provider like megaupload, rapidshare, and other few newer but popular like hotfile, filesonic and depositfiles is a bit annoying for completely free users but they still exist until now.

    Nice Article :)
    Cheers

        Media fire is the best thing for the security but , the only worst thing is that they will delete the files with out any proper reason ……

  • Josh

    Hate to say it but u might want to take fileden off the top 20 best list due to it’s recent problems. A few months ago they had server problems which led to them shutting down for almost 2 weeks while they brought new servers online & those new servers were just recently hacked this fileden has temporally shut down while they get new servers once again. think i’m making this up well i’m not this was the notice when i just signed into my fileden.

  • Bob Hart

    I personally hated both megaupload, rapidshare AND most of all hotfile…I used to have alot of my stuff on RS, but then their service went down to crap…then switched to hotfile, who’s servers crashed & lost ALL my files…then megaupload which omg i can’t believe what happened.

  • http://linuxthebest.com Sinbad Konick

  • Tom

    I can understand about Hotfile and megaupload. But I have been using rapidshare since 2008 and even when they changed the system a year or so back, they realized they did something wrong. Allot of users were going away from there. But now they have a better system now. I have thousands of files hosted there and have never lost anything. I think they are one of the top 5 or the best out there. But thats my opinion. If you haven’t tried it lately then you should try it again.

  • zippyshare rocks!!

    Zippyshare is the best hands down!!!

  • Jai

    Appreciated your post and took you up on SLINGFILE — BEWARE!

    No problems uploading but absolutely ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE for an entire month just trying to delete the file!

    NO response to my 4 customer service requests after my emailed link wouldn’t delete it.

    Now my file is stuck out there online endlessly and a quick second is all it would take to delete it…..isn’t anybody home over there at Slingfile???
