File Sharing

File sharing describes the process of exchanging files with other parties or services. You can share files on the Internet using various methods and programs, from using P2P (Peer to Peer) software like uTorrent or BitTorrent, to email, web-based services like online file hosting services or cloud storage providers.
The file-sharing category offers reviews of popular file-sharing programs, news about updates and what they include, news about file-sharing-related services on the Internet, and also technological breakthroughs that improve file sharing in one way or the other. Tips and how-to articles make up another large section here which helps you get the most out of programs you use.
