Hey guys,

I just thought I should post this little tip about two sites I know of. Many of the uploads in XDA are mirrored in sites which have annoying download limitations. Some uploaders do it trying to make some cash but at the rate these download sites pay, I doubt they'd make a lot.

In any case, this tip is for people who like to create mirrors.

There are two sites that I'd like to mention. Namely, URL Droplet and sideCLOUDload.

Both these sites provide an unique feature. They provide remote upload to Dropbox.

http://urldroplet.com/ (300MB limit)

https://www.sidecloudload.com/ (25MB limit)

So, next time you want to mirror something, you wouldn't have to trouble yourself downloading it first especially if the file is large or you have slower internet or you use a volume based package.

These sites are also useful for downloading files from slow sites. You add the file to queue and the these sites will upload the files you want to your dropbox and you could download the file without any delays from your dropbox.

If you are new to dropbox, do consider using my referral link when you signup.

Great info.
But find it a little useless when you look at it?
Why upload it to someplace to then mirror it to dropbox?

multiupload does it to multiple well known file sharing sites in 1 upload.

I use dropbox and it's great but the tools you provide are more for important stuff. Like let's say you found a software or license package you need allot and you always wanna have it . Well then those sites will let it synch to your dropbox and then a copy is safe on your space.

Rapidshare also has this service now.

In case on this forum where the majority of shares are Kernels,Roms,Apps i would still say that file sharing hosts (not promoting here) are the fastest and best solution to share.


Google should actually make a service like dropbox.

I often see requests to mirror some files elsewhere since some of these file sharing hosts have annoying limitations. This is to mirror already uploaded files. Not all files.

As you know, dropbox has no limitations. Plus, anyone can save it to their dropbox without a problem. Multiupload is great but not a lot of people use it.

This might not be useful for everyone but it might save some time for many.

Google already has a dropbox like service. Google Docs comes with 1GB free storage and uploading as well as sharing for all files but additionally editing for documents.

Google Docs has no sync. Maybe that's why you missed it. RapidShare is great and Uploading.com is great too. But, I find the download limits annoying. Sometimes, Rapidshare and similar sites will run out of download slots for free users with no means of downloading the file at all.

urldroplet is great, I've been using it for quite a while. The 300MB limit isn't that great though. Is there something like this for google drive though, preferably with a higher (or no) limit?
