Searching for new free file sharing site

Where can I find one?
When I uploaded my draft of our latest chapter, I discovered that Mediafire has imposed some major restrictions on sharing archives. Now, free users may only share archives such as zips and rars 10 times per week. As a result, I'm looking for suggestions for a better, free, alternative to place our releases. I'm looking for a free sharing service with the following features:

1. Least amount of hassle to downloaders. Little to no wait times, capthas or such. This was the reason I choose Mediafire in the first place.
2. Fast and trouble free connection.
3. Must be a managable storage site. Not one of those that are intended for emailing links to a limited number of people.
4. Largest storage capacity and period. The more files and the longer they can be kept, the better.
5. Not a sync service. I do not need the service to synchronize with folders on my system.

If you have any suggestions, please post them here.
As a final note, I have no intention of paying for a service. The nature of our operations is such that there is the risk that our file sharing account could get suspended for one reason or another. In that event, I do not intend to have to argue about fees already paid.

    1. Dropbox is tiny and is what I referred to as a sync service. I have actually thought about using it to store torrent files, because it can hotlink for free. But It's not suitable for storing entire chapters for sharing.

  3. sendspace.com seems like the more popular choice for everyone but there might be some stuff for the uploader to deal with and decent to low speeds, but it works, no capatcha, and free? I hopes.

  5. You could try using Zippyshare. I've seen several sites using it. File sizes that are larger than 100mb just requires a simple catcha. There does not seem to be a file download limitation either.

  6. Dropbox?.... maybe to risk... but for a close community it's the best

  7. Sendspace, BillionUploads, UpToBox, Cyberlocker, Megafiles.se, Megaload.it, UploadCore, Sendmyway, Putlocker.
    These are all full speed downloads and some of them simultaneous download possible also.

  8. I guess I would try Dev-Host (url: d-h.st). They seem to have a minimum of irritating limits and annoyances. The only potential problem is that they delete a file if it isn't downloaded for 30 days.

  10. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before. “I thank God for my handicaps, for through them, I have found myself, my work and my God.” by Hellen Keller.
