I’ve been using MediaFire since some time for now and I am impressed with features offered to my Free account till now, you can no way compare this service to Dropbox or Google Drive which offers files synchronization but useful enough which offers 50 GB of free cloud storage space to free accounts, there are some limitations and advantages with this file sharing site with other sites when compared, here they’re in brief.
Limitations: Maximum individual file size that can be uploaded or downloaded is 200 MB, if your account stays inactive for certain period of time your account will be removed.
Advantages: Store up to 50 GB of files in your accounts where other popular services such as Google Drive, Dropbox offers 5 GB and 2 GB respectively and let me tell you MediaFire offering this since July 16th onwards. You can download any number of files simultaneously without speed/ bandwidth limitations. MediaFire supports resume of unfinished downloads.
Onetime links is a great feature that lets you restrict number of downloads to specified person to one, to get 1-time download link for a file right-click on that file and select share button and click on option provided on share lightbox. Free users can able to create 15 onetime links per a day.
Files uploading made easy with Drag and drop: You can drag and drop multiple files at once from your Computer to this service ‘s Uploader area. You can also drag and drop new file onto old file without needing to change the link.
Online document viewing & editing: You can view and edit uploaded documents such as PDF, Word, PowerPoint online on its web interface without needing to download them to your Computer.
More reasons for bloggers to use this service than Dropbox: Bloggers will relish this service because it doesn’t ban your links which you shared on your blog once they get excessive traffic, Dropbox does this.
