    Question The future of filesharing on th is site

    With Megupload gone, filesonic and many others recently dropped dead and left people with a subscription hanging alone, what's this board doing about filesharing links? Seems like they're here and gone tomorrow. The big boys were charging only less than $10 USD/month for filesharing with and very fast speeds. There only a very few left wupload, their speeds are all taking a big hit because everyone is jumping to get upload onto them and people have no else where to go to download. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that they'll be here next week and likely they may not be

    What is this forums backup plans? Torrents? Binary Newsgroups (USENET)? European filesharing sites that are more expensive? With Torrents, your speed is based on the number of people sharing. With USENET it depends on your premium news server which is highly recommended. But retention is maxed out usually around 1000 days or so.

    I'm finding that not many sites are actually using Rapidshare which I know is a very common site. The price is 9.90 Euros which is around $13+ USD/month. Some of the filesharing sites which are attracting a lot of hosts are:
    Ul.to
    depositfiles
    filefactory

    Re: The future of filesharing on th is site

    I wonder why people do not switch over to usenet? It costs me 5 euro a month. 660 day retention ( i think only few down sw older than 2 years btw) 6mb/ps
    but most of all, no probs concerning the latest filesharing-hassle. Sure upload is 1mbps, so that sucks.
    But i hope someone can give me another practical counterargument.
    You wanna do whát with that screwdriver?

    I agree with you 100%. A lot of people have negative stereotypes of USENET or dont even know anything about them. Which service do you use? I pay $11 a month and the retention is 1100+ days with 20 connections. Very reliable and high completion.

    USENET is the way to go. No relying on seeders, and full bandwidth

    Re: The future of filesharing on th is site

    Another vote for Usenet. Apart from anything else you'd save yourself a load of time because you wouldn't have to keep on uploading files over and over again when the fileshare sites take them down. Upload once then they're there for as long as the Usenet service has retention.

    I use Giganews, I can download at 30Mb/s (my full connection speed) and the retention is over 3 and a half years now. The maps would be well out of date and updated loads of times by the time we lose access to them.

    Filesharing sites must be a major headache for you. I'm really surprised people still use them.

    I'd vote for RS with Usenet coming a close second.
    Fileserve are also back in the game but who knows for how long

    RS for sure so far.But all of them seem top be scrambling now so who really knows? People can only afford one and they all seem to have slow upload speeds which hamper most. Future will tell.
