Re: Freespace Files Inquiries

We've moved servers a few times, that usually causes some downtime. I last switched servers in June 2015; I think we were offline for a few days. Before that.. possibly a few days in 2012? Can't remember much beyond that. There is sometimes a software/hardware failure that causes an outage. Overall though, we've been steady for about a decade now.

Re: Freespace Files Inquiries

Hello! Well, I've been doing some tinkering here and there and I've decided to implement private accounts for FreeSpace Files - again. This time though, you don't need to obtain user details from me, you can do it automatically by registering on the site. Here is how to do it:

First go to the homepage, then in the drop down menu select 'My Repository'
Register an account - Enter your Username, Password & E-mail. Once you've verified it, you'll be presented with the upload and create options:
Drag and drop files, or press the button to select up to 20 files at a time, which will then automatically be uploaded:
Once everything is uploaded, you can do whatever you like including rename, move, delete and share files. Select one or multiple files to generate a share link:
Copy and paste the share link, then post it wherever you like. Those files will then be downloadable by the public:'
All files are private unless you decide to share them.
