YAY! Good riddance. These sites make money because they host massive amounts of pirate files. I don't think I ever saw anyone using these sites for legitimate reasons!

false news.. they arent "shutdown" they just got rid of paying users for uploading.

you can still download your personal files if you have used them for legit purposes.

Called double edged. There are a number of people using sites like Filesonic, megaupload, etc that uses it legitimately, as well as piracy, and it's not just a few. I know many people use filesonic frequently for mods, or whatever else reason, and they are ****ed off that this happened. This is a case in point that legitimate people are being punished over criminal acts that they didn't do.

What you have seen =/= What happens for everyone

I used this site when I couldnt get access to megaupload to transfer files to work from my Home PC

Maybe if you came down off your anti-piracy high horse and took a little look around you'd have seen legitiamte files on filesharing sites.

Both FS servers are based in UK and Hong Kong.







So you have no doubt heard about the insanity surrounding the shutting down of MegaUpload, particularly the wild story about how the file-sharing website's founder was arrested in high fashion. Well, this has all clearly spooked other file-sharing services, including FileSonic. If you go to its homepage, you're greeted by a message that reads: "All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally." Not only that, but Uploaded.to is no longer available for use in the U.S.

Wow. Do you think anyone else will fold in light of the ongoing witch hunt? And could a major player like Mediafire go under?

Update: The FileSonic Facebook page has now disappeared. Props to our reader William Tran for the tip.
