Need GOOD file sharing on net!

  1. Been trying to get Putfile to work, just a battle
    to get anything to work as far as getting URLs
    that actually connect to the files out of the darn thing.

    Been trying to send some large files to an individual,
    tried copy/paste the folder URL, he couldn't open.

    Even had problems copy/paste the URL for any file
    even, their "copy" button won't work for me.

    (Firefox latest, XP home)

    Tired of fighting with it, can't send anything to anybody
    so a waste of time uploading anything.

    Anything "out there" that actually works?

    Thanks!

    Uhm if file sharing you mean picture/video hosting that lets makes html code for you so you can post them on the internet then photobucket.com

    It's actually a mix of things - not all pics & video clips.

    Some Word or Excel or pdf, too.

    My daughter uses Photobucket and likes it, I'll have
    to check it out I guess.

    Thanks!

    mediafire free
    megaupload free
    rapidshare free
    you don't say the size of files your dealing with
    fastest upload for me is mediafire
    then rapidshare
    there's another that can hold a 3gb file megashares
    can use a download manager with that one but slow up and down
    imaging place sites only do that images
    very low file size's

    Thanks!

    I'd done a little searching but don't remember seeing
    any of those.

    Nothing huge on file sizes, mostly in the few mb range.
    Maybe a moderate sized Powerpoint slideshow or
    short home videoclip on occasion.

    who ever is your provider
    if you are on dsl or cable most isp's give you small website to host your stuff

    Afraid that wouldn't work in my case.

    My work takes me to different locations for months
    at a time but I'm seldom in one place for much over
    a year, so am constantly changing providers.

    setup your own server and use no-ip or nodns services its free
    takes about 5min to change dns ip address's
    anglefire may be a choice
    man there' got to be dozens

    Never dabbled in stuff like that,
    but no time like the present to
    maybe learn something!

    I'll give it a look.

    Thanks!

    I used mediafire back in december to get 297 megs of video from where I work to a professor at Carnegie Mellon University (you'd think my university would have been able to help me with that, but no. what was internet2 for again?)

    I rar'd up the video into 3 segments and placed them on mediafire, I got good upload speeds, 450+ kB/sec , which is about as good as I can do on speedtests from work.
