  • Do they ever do €5/yr access any more, or is it always €10?

    Favourite host in general: Ramnode (affiliate link)
    Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr ($50 free credit for new accounts, affiliate link)

  • It isn't exactly unlimited, though. They use the terminology cold and hot storage to determine how much you can store.

    The lowest price I've ever seen is 10.
    5 is too unrealistic.

    you can use as a backup with the rclone, this is a good solution for me

    I think so.

    However, rclone encountered a problem(some files):

    [HTTP error 403 (403 Forbidden) returned body: "{\"status\":\"KO\",\"message\":\"Flood detected: IP Locked #374\"}"]

    I tried to limit the speed and concurrent connections, but to no avail.

    Two of my friends have the same problem.

    Good enough so that many LET users use it. Don't expect diamonds. You are paying 15€/year. It's good enough. They operate their own network and POP is in France iirc. Speedtest: https://1fichier.com/network.html

    It’s a bit deceptive if they point their speedtest server to this then.

    1fichier is rate-limiting harder than before and not telling anyone about it ;-) rclone beta has the fix but it is getting slower because of built-in sleep times.

    Because this is not classic file storage. It's a little bit different service.
    Their key audience it's a people who shares files only, not a people who store only their data. And people who need these files and such type of files many with high speeds.

    Business model as for me pretty transparent and legit. It is explains why they (1fichier) have so many limitations and restrictions everywhere. At least not scam, because 1fichier for many years in the market, and I don't see anything that sounds or acted as a crazy thing from their side.

    But this service impossible to use for daily usage like google drive, mega, koofr, onedrive, pcloud, etc... And that's a problem.

    Even for sharing files to clients you can't too, too many restrictions which will force an end user to purchase a subsription for a file for downloading it on maximum speed. Smart, wise and transparent business model. But their target audience is a people who're storing something (for sharing) from 1fichier (games, warez, big video archives, etc) for people who want that at any cost, so they will for sure purchase an account for unlocking speeds, and problems for downloading important for a visitor of 1fichier download link.

    I was surprised that rclone implementation was there, but after trying it, i did not found rclone work properly with their API, too much restrictions and problems.

    You can setup @nulldev script to have your clients download files at full speed (premium) withouth signing in.

    Their network is pretty good (In my case), I was gonna snatch a plan but I can't pay through my mobile plan. Not sure why they don't have more payment options.

    A friend let me borrow his to store quite large files (20tb and 30tb zipped files) and I was able to download them without any issues at a capped 27MB/s, very impressive considering I live in Canada, and they are in France.

    Got similar if not better than US-based providers such as Dropbox.

  • Wow, this thread is still alive after all of this time. :)

    I used to use 1Fichier for tar files (backups), but I now have a storage VPS for this purpose. Naturally, a storage VPS isn't as cheap, but I don't need TBs of storage, and I can set up the VPS as I want.

    This said, it's nice to see that 1Fichier is still around and appears to be doing well. :)

    Your Premium offer subscription is valid until 2021-12-27

    I do not even remember when I subscribed...still working here but I won’t renew it. It’s very cheap and performant for full backups, but a drag to handle (removing files in particular).

    What other cheap storage options available for the long term, I see Microsoft business essential with team viewer, email and we get 1 TB storage drive, for roughly 2 USD per month [For Indian location INR 125 + 18% TAX].

    If anyone's interested, name.com provides single unlimited google gsuite accounts on domains for 8 USD per month. That's cheap and google has mirrors everywhere.

    Wow. Do they still allow uncapped storage (just 1 user) or cap at 1tb?

    Also goes Google provide additional security for data stored on gsuite business on its cloud or it's still having all the same snooping policies per the free google drive?

    Thanks

    Oops sorry. Unlimited only for more than 4 users, otherwise its 1tb. Its kind of a combo deal.
    According to EULA google assures that's there won't be any snooping around the files though.
