LeechPack For Large File Hosts

Posted by Alan at 3:45 PM on September 13, 2010

If you want to share large files, then you already know that email is NOT your friend.  Many email services have file size limits – frequently 10MB.  If you have looked further then you also know of the services available to help you share larger files such as Rapidshare, Megaupload, EasyShare, FileSonic, and FileFactory.  Some of these services actually pay you if your files are popular and have a large number of downloads.  Most of these types of services have restrictions on file size, although it generally much larger than email.

That’s where LeechPack comes in.  LechPack gives you cloud storage so that you can quickly download files from most of the major file hosting services.  Leechpack will also handle secure downloading of torrents.

LeechPack works with all operating systems and can be used with all major download managers. All downloads are SSL encrypted so you won’t expose yourself to scammers. You can also tag and organize your files for better management and download them from anywhere.

The bad news is that it’s not free.  But, if you know where to look online then you can find an invite for a free account.  The free accounts are limited, but they will give you an idea of what it can do and if you really need it.
