Overall Satisfaction with MediaFire

My usage of MediaFire has been mainly of a personal nature over the years. I met MediaFire several years ago and I always used it to share some files within some groups and forums (mainly photos and videos). With the passage of time and perhaps a more mature use, I started using MediaFire as a storage system for files and documents since unfortunately at some point I lost all the information on my PC product of a virus, and from there I decided to use it as a of backup of sensitive personal files. At present I still use it to store and share some files, mainly for the ease and speed to upload a file, as well as the ease and speed to download without a limit.

  • Speed and ease to upload and download files.
  • Available for iPhone, Android, OSX, Windows, and Web.
  • Has no limit of downloads.
  • Give you a considerably large size of space within your servers.
  • In free accounts you can only manage files of little megabytes (200), which could be improved since currently file sizes are higher.
  • Thanks to MediaFire I have been able to recover information stored many years ago on their servers, since they usually do not delete files after a certain time.
  • It has helped me to be able to backup sensitive information from long before the existence of massive clouds, so if you did not make these backups you had to lose all the information, but thanks to half fire that did not happen to me.
Although both have similar functions, the differences between the two are perhaps more associated with the publicity they have received, since Dropbox is a more formal use, while MediaFire is used a lot of time to share movies and files illegally. The advantage that MediaFire has is the storage space that it gives you, which is much higher even in the free version. But the disadvantage is perhaps something more personal and has to do with the feeling of "security" that Dropbox gives, which finally is something equally important.

Usually MediaFire is quite adequate in all contexts that can be used, because if you want to share a file it is a good idea to be able to do it from there, anyway, if you want to make a backup it is a good idea (due to its speed and ease of use), and even if you want to download something from the web usually MediaFire links work very well even when they are old. Now, if you need it for a more formal use, maybe for companies or serious jobs, its use may not be as adequate because it is not a well known platform and is more related to shared files in forums or web pages.
