Top 10 Free File Hosting Services To Store Your Files

If you’ve ever had an email inbox clogged with attachments from friends or coworkers, you’ve probably experienced an inbox slowdown or run up against its storage limit. Maybe you’ve  send or receive large files through email, but the system wouldn’t even allow your oversized attachment to be delivered. Web services that let you avoid these problems have arrived on the scene, and some of them don’t require any tech-savvy skills and won’t cost you anything. Here are the 10 best file hosting services for you and your friends.


Upload up to 10 files of up to 100MB each at a time, unlimited storage. Allow to link to files from your MySpace page, your blog, or forums, upload an unlimited number of files to share with friends and family or storage, use folders to easily share groups of files or create galleries for all your images. No registration necessary and no software to install.


Up to 1GB of storage of files up to 10MB size each. Store your documents on Box so that you can access them from anywhere. Share photos on your blog or website, and more.


Filedropper is amazing. It offers yet another free file sharing service, but with a 5GB capacity, no registration requirements, and a theoretically unlimited download period, this one may be a standout.


Badongo is an exceptionally neat file host, and I would most certainly rate it as one of the best. As a unregistered user, you are allowed to upload up to 4.8GB a day and as a free, registered user, 12GB a day. To make it similar to Filedropper, Badongo allows users to upload files of a maximum size of 1GB. When you register with Badongo you even receive an account that stores all of your files of course, but also allows users to create picture albums out of the pictures they store. This brings even more wonderful features to this awesome site.


It offers unlimited downloads, and you can upload files up to 100 MB. The service is completely ad-financed so there isn’t any premium service.

Update: This web service has been discontinued.


ADrive is a free service and the 50 GB of space is currently the most you can get as far as free offerings (most others offer just 1-5 GB for free.) There is a 2 GB file size limit, but very few people will have files that exceed 2 GB. To put that in perspective, high-resolution digital photos are only about 2-6 MB each.


MyFreeFileHosting has an interface similar to MediaFire’s. It includes the option to send an notification email to someone to tell them of the upload, tags to categorize the file, etc. Of course, after one uploads the file, links are given to allow for download and distribution. The maximum file size allowed is 100MB.

Windows Live Folders – Skydrive

Windows Live Folders shows a great deal of promise. It could be a good option for smaller organizations who can’t support a VPN or use Windows’ built-in file sharing, and it may end up competing with other media sharing options. At present, you get 500MB of free storage with it, and it always displays how much you have left at the top of the window. The maximum file size you can upload right now is 50MB.


RapidShare is at the moment the most popular file hosting service in the world. Downloads are generally fast, and you can find virtually any kind of file on RapidShare. However, the download limits are very strict.


FileCrunch ups the ante on most of these services’ maximum file size from 100MB to 250MB. Very similar to YouSendIt, it’s really just web storage that generates links to download your files. There’s no limit on storage and downloads, and it supports download managers and accelerators.
Thats it for now, enjoy these file hosting services. Got any suggestions or feedback, leave a comment and we will be back in touch with you.
