I use 4 hosting services for my zip files : rapidshare, megaupload, easy-share and depositfiles. Rapidshare works fairly well, and if you can change IP (lucky bastard, I’ve got a persistent IP that changes once per year), an IP change will kill the long wait between two downloads from them. Megaupload and easy-share sometimes load a blank page when you want to start the download : try again and it will work. Easy-Share sometimes downloads a 1 kb file : try the download again (“shit happens”). The big piece is depositfiles, though !
There has been people having problems with my zipped download links, hosted at depositfiles, so I have gathered here some explanation links, written by me :
- depositfiles (like all free hosts) will try to make you believe you have to pay or install a toolbar. False : you can download without paying, without installing a toolbar. Read the whole explanation on why depositfiles is doing it
- what if the mirrors are dead and, for the main (first) link, his own link, depositfiles demands a payment ? That started happening recently, when their download link (not the mirrors, THEIR link) is replaced with a payment page.) There is a way to download the file without paying or installing anything. Read the whole explanation
- there is a tool to resume broken depositfiles downloads, very handy for people with slow or bad connexions, Read the whole explanation
- depositfiles and the mirrors : depositfiles offers now, if his own links are not available, mirrors at rapidshare, megaupload, mytempdir and moolad. So that means I don’t need to mirror my files anymore, I feel !
Because I’m honest, I also inform you that I have chosen depositfiles and not other hosts because, with equal quality, they give me a bit of money. In february, that paid me and my wife and kid a restaurant at the end of the month, for instance (“tagliatelli salmonata”, yummy). You can also use depositfiles like that, read more if you’re interested.

You liked it ? Hated it ? You've got additional information and links ? Or did you see broken links (please report them, I will reupload it) ? Bring more life here, participate, add a comment ;-)
If you report a dead link, please, tell me what is the precise dead hyperlink and the precise error. Never forget to try again !
