Free File Hosting Site
Persistance finally paid off. I found the perfect file hosting site.
It has none of the problems that make other sites useless.
No more posting ASC and PLT files to newsgroup. Just zip them and upload. They are ready to run after unzipping. This makes it very convenient for users since they do not have to cut and paste. You can also include the PLT file to show exactly what you are interested in.
- Files are permanent. They are not deleted after 7, 10, 20, 30 or90 days.
- Files are not deleted after periods of inactivity.
- No restrictions on filetypes. Some sites block ZIP files.

SaberCat File Hosting frequently asked questions.

A: Yes, uploading and downloading is 100% Free for all users. We offer premium accounts which allows for greater flexibility with uploading/downloading.
Q: Will my files be removed?
A: Free account files are kept forever. Premium account files are kept forever.

Q: Which files types am I allowed to upload?

A: For free users and users who do not have an account, your upload must be less than 50.00 MB in size. For premium upgraded users, the limit is 10.00 GB in size. If your file is larger than that amount, your file will be not be accepted and you must upload a file that is within the file size limits.
Q: How many files can I upload at the same time?
A: Premium users can upload 100 files at the same time. However, if you would like to upload thousands of small files at once, I recommend to zip them up with 7zip (it's free) and then upload the single large zip file instead of thousands of files at once. This will make it much easier to download them all when you need them.
