    Free online storage space

    I am looking for some FREE on-line storage space software , which MUST fit the following criteria:

    No inactivity limit (i.e account does not time out if do not use it for a while)

    Ability to upload files of all types

    Able to include hyperlink to files on storage space on a seperate web page

    Users accessing files stored on storage space do NOT have to install storage software in order to view files

    Upto 2 Gig in file size can be uploaded (If not possible then 1 GIG)

    Any help would be apperciated.

    I have tried google and there are loads and it will take me weeks to go through them all!!

    I am just enquiring if any one has an experience of using this type of software and can recommend any.

    >> I am looking for some FREE on-line storage space software...

    Are you looking for storage space, or software?

    I'm not really sure I'm even close to following you on this one!

    I think...

    You are looking for free storage space, 1GB minimum.
    Yes? You then need to look for a site offering free storage space (as you asked for in <post:=685,487>post 685,487</post:>)

    You want the "Ability to upload files of all types"
    I think that will depend on the ISP offering the free space. For FTP software, see the thread beginning with <post:=574,503>post 574,503</post:>.

    You want to be "Able to include hyperlink to files on storage space on a seperate web page"
    You need web authoring software to produce a webpage including hyperlinks - plenty of suggestions in the Software forum (e.g. <post:=559,187>post 559,187</post:>).

    "Users accessing files stored on storage space do NOT have to install storage software in order to view files"
    Depends on what you mean by 'view', but any browser should probably do. IE is included with Windows, Firefox is free.

    You're looking at it all wrong. Take notes on them, create a storage review web site, put Google ads on each page, and your investment of time will be paid back 100-fold. (Okay, I can't guarantee the return, but you obviously can't be the only person looking for this information.)
