I'm not that sure why someone would want to upload files to multiple file hosts unless it was for questionable or backup purposes. But I'm not in the position to question motives but to review two services that spread files to multiple file hosts.
RapidSpread and TinyLoad are two services that basically provide the same service. The user can upload a file and they start spreading it around to multiple file hosts. The major difference between the two services is as to how that is managed. Rapidspread does not allow the selection of file hosts but spreads the uploaded files to all file hosts that it has in its database. The ten file hosts currently in the database include Rapidshare, Sendspace and DepositFiles.
A profile page for every uploaded file is created which can be accessed to reveal the links to the various file hosts the file has been spread to.
TinyLoad on the other hand gives the user more choice. He can select the file hosts from a selection of 12 including Megaupload, Rapidshare and DivShare. Another difference is a file filter that is being used by TinyLoad to prevent that certain file types are being uploaded. Rapidspread did not have a problem with an executable file whereas TinyLoad did reject the file.
Update: Both services have stopped operation. An alternative that is still in operation is Mirror Creator which you can use to spread your file to up to eight different file hosting sites. Mirror Creator supports several of the biggest names in the file hosting business including Rapidshare, Depositfiles, MediaFire or UploadedTo. Free users get to upload a maximum size of 250 Megabyte per spread, and do not need an account to do just that.
Registered users get additional upload slots, access to a file manager to keep track of links, and account support on those sites.Advertisement
