With their free hosting option, customers benefit from a large number of features integrated in the plan. This can be updated and customers have 24/7 support provided for them. For file management, features like zip files online (meant for file archiving), the possibility to transfer and manage files online, multilevel file system, file restoring, folder sharing as well as password protection for your files are all part of the free option.

What the Premium plan has to offer in addition to the free plan is that this one includes ad-free sharing, file editing, FTP/SFTP access, direct downloads of files on your page, file and account statistics, and for more protection, customers are provided with data backup, so your information are safe.

I registered for an account and was able to download the book that I was looking for. Overall, this site appears to be safe, although I would use your junk email.

Intrusive arrogance
Recenty had a new folder "Camera-L710" appear in my account. It was not created by e, was not wanted, but it could NOT be deleted. Multiple attempts failed. Finally I renamed it, and it was gone. NOT ! Next log on, it reappeared.

So, someone is able to enter my account, create new folders, and lock them so that the user cannot remove them.

I have sent a note to Tech support. Waiting to see if there is an answer. Meanwhile, I must conclude that either my account has been hacked or some 4Shared honcho has decided to intrude into private accounts and create folders. Either way it speaks very poorly of their care for customer privacy and security.
