Plugging Adrive
« on: July 26, 2011, 11:31:06 AM »
If you came here to read about floppy disks you're in the wrong decade thread.  :P

I just want to plug the online file storage service, Adrive.

I needed to download a few episodes of a TV show before they were taken down from the channel's site. The downloads total to a few GBs and I have other stuff downloading that I don't want to interrupt. So I looked for an online service that would directly download files from the web. Fetch.io, which I tried first, was a disaster. I read about Adrive and tried it next and it seems like a great service. No-nonsense signup, 50GB free, it fetches the files fast from 3rd party sites (~10 mins/GB - would be dependent on the host servers too, so YMMV) and it allows the use of a download manager with resume capability. I thought they deserved a mention. :Thmbsup:

Cool, transferring large files across the web (i.e. not from my machine) sounds pretty darn useful. Going to give it a try.

I signed up for ADrive nearly 3 years ago but never really used it.

Thanks for letting me know about this feature. It seems pretty useful.
