I was not sure which category to post this so I am posting it here.Feel free to move this if it is in the wrong category.But I have been using Mediafire to store my files from such as Windows Movie maker 2.1 and Windows Mail from Windows Vista and others.Which can be stored in a zip file and then downloaded onto Windows 7 because Windows 7 does not have these programs.They are only on Windows XP and Windows Vista. But if you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista computer like I have got,you can store the files online and share them with friends or make them private and download them onto your Windows 7 computer. This is what I do a lot when I am away from home and need to install or reinstall a program from Windows XP.And don't have my Windows XP or Windows Vista computer with me. So basically I have been relying on Mediafire,the online file sharing and storage site to access my files,some of which are public, others are private.But for the past 24 hours although I can get onto the site and log into my account.When I am taken to the download page and click on the green button to download but the page just returns back to the download page and the file does not download.And then I try again and the same thing happens,I am taken back to the download page but I cannot download anything. Also my friends have got exactly the same problem as me.when they try to download their files the page just keeps going back to the download page but they too cannot download their files or any other files that are on Mediafire. I have emailed the site Mediafire but they just told me that they removed a file from someone else and that could be why the site not working properly. And I even telephoned my ISP and asked them if they have blocked or restricted the site but they said no.And they tested the site and told me the problem is with the website Mediafire and there is nothing they can do.And that I have to contact Mediafire again.But they were of no help. But it has now been over 24 hours and still I have the same problem. And even when i try to download different files for example WMP 11 for Windows 7 from WinMatrix which hosts their install on Mediafire I cannot download that either. And it's not only me. None of my friends who are in different locations and have different ISP can download anything from Mediafire either. So there is a problem on the website which Mediafire won't fix. But i have got most of my important files on Mediafire and I am in the process of installing Windows 8 RP and reinstalling Windows 7 on another laptop. And so I need to my files from Mediafire but I cannot download anything. So the moral of the story is NEVER rely on an online file sharing and storage site. As I have just read some posts on the web and found out that they can delete your files or your account any time. then you have got nothing. But my account is still active and not restricted.The problem is that there is a fault on the website and Mediafire have not bothered to fix it. So I and everybody else cannot download their files. Everybody on other forums keeps telling me to back up my files on a DVD or a USB thumb drive.And yes even though I have netbooks,I do have a USB external DVD drive I could use to back up my files,using windows back up on Windows 7,Windows Vista and Windows 8. but it was just much more easier and quicker to use an online file storage and sharing site. And also I have my own website and write a lot of posts about install Windows XP software on Windows 7. And Mediafire is an easy way to share that program file with readers.So that people who do not have Windows XP or Windows Vista can just download that program file onto their computer. And a lot of people use file sharing sites like Mediafire both for sharing and storage. But now I cannot download any of my files. And my friends and other people I have talked to cannot download their own files either. So where do I go from here? Andrea Borman.
