How long are the files kept? The files are kept forever as long as they are being downloaded.

From the "about us" tab. I wonder how long before the files are deleted if they're not being downloaded? Whatever, now I have an easy way to transfer large files between campus computers.

Bandwidth and servers aren't free.

that's why they're charging after september 15th.

Spoil sport.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is an attempt at something more sneaky. I mean, They've released a site with not even the option to pay for advertising, so that means they're not making ANY money right now, so that means they going to be running $1000+ servers a month, out of their own pocket. I speculate this is an attempt to steal usernames and passwords, granted it's elaborate, but just maybe.

It's totally not feasible to run a service like this. Rapidshare survive because of their pricing structure, and the advantage of paying. If we don't have to pay to get a better service with this, why will people pay?

Oh, and the upload of illegal content will get their servers seized.

And the accounts will probably be really expensive so that the company can break even.

FileSavr.com was created as a fresh alternative to sites like MegaUpload and RapidShare. Unlike those sites, we do not reel the user in and make them wait for annoying countdown timers. We do not hide the download link with aggressively placed ads. Our goal is simple, to offer the most basic file hosting and image hosting service so you can share your stuff quickly.

$10 a month for 250GB space with NO advertising? Haha, they'll be gone in a week.

Has anyone managed to upload a file over 1GB yet? I'm worried this is just another useless file hosting site, since it says 250Gb, not 250GB. Gigabit =/= Gigabyte :/

SCAM! yes you get all this 'free' space but the idea is that in 30 years they block you from it the charge you per mb of space used AND per month AND for every use after the 'free' period.
you also run the risk of billions of viruses and other things with this type of storage.
this only works if you have a fake name to set it up with that you never use again, if you use it on a diffrent site then they track you down and make you pay for it.

it is a scam and it works like an investment, they set up the storage for everyone, billions of people use it, they keep track of what everyone does, an after 30 years they 'cash it' making all users pay for their 'free time'

cuz after 30 years how many 'important' things might end up their that people will have to go back for.

I warn all users to clear out long before the 30 years is up,but you will probably forget and get scamed, so have fun.

And how would they get the money of you? If you don´t have to put in any bank details for a free account they have no way of knowing your details or anything.

If, god forbid, this somehow survives (If so, sweet!) Someone should coldwire this to work with Windows Live Mesh to treat it as a PC.

Lawl, a pron site is in dev that is going to be able to show 1080^2, you can actually start to see cells and shit at that level, but you need a supah-fazz comp to use it.

Apparently these guys registered their domain through a proxy, and for only 1 year. Sounds like a scam to me. I still signed up (using my regular login and password D: ) but w/e, I don't use those details for any important sites I go on anyway, if this turns out to be a scam.
