Upload, share and download files online
- Easy to use
- Nice Flash uploader
- Limitations in free accounts
RapidShare is an online file storage service that lets you upload multiple files and generate private download links you can use to share that content with anyone.
Uploading files to Rapidshare is easy as pie: simply select the file and click the “Upload” button. You can also use the Flash-based upload manager, which allows you to upload up to three files at the same time. The size limit for RapidShare files is 500 MB, but you can split up larger archives if necessary.
The Free account in RapidShare has some limitations: files can only be downloaded 10 times and the RapidShare links are erased after 60 days of inactivity. The RapidShare Premium account, on the other side, is much faster.
Signing up for RapidShare is free and helps you manage files in a much more organized way. On the downside, many of the Premium services must be paid with Rapids, the RapidShare credit system that allows you to buy more storage space and bandwidth.
RapidShare is a fast, efficient file storage system with extra services – though many of these must be paid for.
