    Just a headsup: MiPony DL Manager seems to be infected according to my MWB so I wont be using/recommending it anymore!

    Instead I started using https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/free-download-manager-portable (no 1fichier support though).

    When uploading a file using ftp (ftp.1fichier.com) client, does it always upload to root (/) only? I can't figure out a way to upload a file via ftp to a particular folder (already created using web-ui).

  • @dynamo said:

    Yes, you have to move it manually afterwards.
    After using this system for a day or so I decided it wasn't fit to use as a backup repository, it's meant for sharing dubious media to the masses rather than any reliable / usable storage.

    It works for me and my ~ 20 sites I backup but I can see if it doesn't fit for your needs. Tbh for that price I am okay with some workarounds here and there as long as my files dont disappear :)

    Still cannot see PayPal. Can you please provide a link?

    You can go to their reseller list page at https://1fichier.com/revendeurs.html. However I would suggest you check the PP fee at different resellers. Some resellers charge a ridiculously high fee that you might not believe until you see it (:lol:). For example, at digitadiko, they charge $10.1 PP fee for $15.5 transaction https://puu.sh/wkoAk/5b6916aa8e.png

    Technically, they're not allowed to charge for using PayPal. It's against their legal terms.

    4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method.  You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.
    

    https://www.paypal.com/ca/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full#4 (scroll down to section 4.6)

    Basically, unless 1Fichier charges the same $10 fee for using a credit/debit card, they are violating the PayPal User Agreement. Many companies do this, and you can report them to PayPal. Most they'll do is force 1Fichier to refund the fee charged for using PayPal explicitly.

    Yeah PP is complicated with them. Afaik they stated once that they are/have been banned from PayPal. Anyway I paid with BTC so I'm good. For anyone looking for PP just check their long list of resellers. They sell the yearly offer for ~14€. Still your best bet. I doubt reporting the reseller sites will help and 1Fichier is more or less PP blacklisted anyway so..

    @Ympker Can't vouch for them, but they must be running a sketchy operation to be banned. I guess it's whether it fits your needs, because I wasn't really able to adapt it to my requirements.

    Im happy for what I get although Id pref google drive features for that price, too.

  • @Ympker I encrypt my files on every platform I use. Google Drive, 1Fichier, etc.

    My account with them is still paid for, so I guess I should make some use out of it. :)

    True that :) For normal stuff I use winrar encryption/pw protection (128 bit). For important stuff I use Veracrypt.

  • Just a quick update:
    It has been nearly a year now that I am with 1Fichier and although the need for storage has decreased for me the past few months I am still storing 2,74 TB with them and that's for just 10€/year. Even if this is not where one would store the most crucial files it is definitly more than I expected. I haven't been contacted to reduce my storage either (although I believe the soft limit is 30 TB ish anyway). For that price it's almost a steal.
    I've yet to make use of the 1,2 TB CDN credits I have collected over time :P

  • More specifically, this is what that US Trade Representative report says about 1fichier.com:

    This cyberlocker is hosted in and popular in France and allegedly makes available
    illegal video game copies and other copyrighted content. According to the video game industry,
    1Fichier is responsive to just 2% of takedown notices, one of the lowest response rates of
    cyberlockers that allegedly host infringing game files. The site derives revenue through a
    subscription service although some major credit card processors do not service the site due to
    allegedly illegal activity. Additionally, the site reportedly contains harmful content, including
    pages that contain suspicious or unknown software.

    Personally, I don't doubt that there are (also) illegal files shared on 1fichier, but it's unclear what conclusion to draw from this paragraph (note "... and allegedly makes available ..." and "According to the video game industry, ...", the latter claim without a reference). If the situation were so bad, given that 1fichier is in France (EU) and has existed since 2009, you'd think that some action could have been taken against it by now.

    But I also don't doubt that the US government doesn't like 1fichier.

    "Linux will run happily with only 4 MB of RAM, including all of the bells and whistles such as the X Window System, Emacs, and so on." (M. Welsh & L. Kaufman, Running Linux, 2e, 1996, p. 32)

    Whatever the exact issue is, I doubt that this is a reliable sign that the US government has taken over 1fichier.

    As @Ympker said, you could just ask them if this is a concern.

    Also interesting in case you wanna store encrypted backups in yet another location (not only 1Fichier please!):

    Can we use 1fichier.com for backups ?

Not because I like illegal hosting content (I don't) but because a) the us of a gov is the single worst i.a. cyber criminal of all, and b) their making that kind of noise usually indicates that someone didn't just bend over for them.

    Not that it matters, if you encrypt your backups -- this will make it difficult if not impossible for them to read your files. Even if they cooperate with the government, unless they have a warrant, they probably won't bother you.

    Of course, if the US government actually wants you, you have greater things to worry about.

    You are right. But, of course, the (backup/storage) providers don't like their users understanding too much. After all 'we super-encrypt all traffic with you and store your stuff in our hyper-encrypted triple-vault' is a major sales point and sounds much better than "we store your stuff on a bunch of reasonably smartly set up disk arrays". So much so that they virtually all "forget" to mention that, of course, as a result customers become victims with their data held hostage - and that's the positive case, i.e. the case where the crypto of the provider actually works properly and isn't crapto in the first place ...

    Not according to their website (-> prices). Some (all?) of their resellers seem to have cheaper packages (about 14$/yr) but I might be mistaken because their product structure (as well as the info) is unclear. There are, for instance, "1 year" packages as well as "premium" packages but I'm not sure whether the 1 year package is premium (or "access" or whatever), etc.

    Moreover their resellers aren't looking like well known entities. And there are other strange things, too, like one can upload via ftp but not download.

    All in all the whole thing is so lousily made that I simply clicked away although the offer - if only it was clearly specified - might be very attractive.

    As for 1fichier and the US government, I don't have the impression that the US government is trying very hard to take down 1fichier. Trump has already met with Macron a few times, and there are no reports that 1fichier was one of the issues discussed. :-)

    It's not necessarily about "state sponsored". The nyt (like others) is well known for spreading lies.

    Well noted, my point isn't about bashing the nyt; it's about newspapers of countries which write BS about other countries, particularly ones that aren't exactly friends.
