MediaFire is a superb file sharing service. What makes it stand out from the crowd is that a user can upload, download, store, backup and share as much as they want, no limitations. Just create an account on MediaFire for free and then start sharing files with your friends and family. The web interface also shows detailed statistics related to the download of the file. Isn’t it great that we get all these features for free and you don’t need to pay even a single buck for this. MediaFire have recently launched an application for desktop for Windows, Mac, Ubuntu and Fedora and this application is named as MediaFire Express.
Upload Files to MediaFire from Desktop
MediaFire Express is a quick way to backup and share files. Basically this is a desktop application that allows you to upload files to MediaFire by a simple drag and drop interface. The program also allows users to capture screenshot and then upload, save or print that screenshot.
The program’s interface is very simple. It shows you the current status of all services. You can drag and drop a file to this interface to upload it to MediaFire. The status will then change to working and when the file is uploaded, you can see options like view, copy link and close. Copy link option allows you to get the download link of that file and then share it with others.
There are two more methods to upload files to MediaFire. Hover your mouse over system tray and you’ll see this drop-zone. Drag and drop files to this drop-zone to upload.
Lastly, you can also upload files by right-clicking on it and then clicking on Upload to MediaFire.
Yes, its really a piece of cake to upload files to MediaFire. This program would have added more value if there would be an option to download files from the user’s account. For example, let’s say you have uploaded 5 files to your MediaFire account. If you want to download those files, then there is no option to download it. You would need to click on My Files to open the web interface and then you can download it from there.
Clicking on “options” opens settings for this application. You can set number of concurrent uploads, SSL uploads, launch or disable on Windows startup and can set many such options.
The biggest plus point of using MediaFire is that there are no limitations. Even a free user can upload unlimited files but each individual file should not be more than 200MB. These limitations are removed by opting for their paid plans.
Its worth noting that MediaFire Express is in Beta stage right now. But while using this application, we didn’t encountered any bug. Download MediaFire Express from here.
