best free large-file file sharing/hosting sites?


I am trying to upload my vast array of multidistro's for USB/CD to a website where others can download them.
I have tried torrent several times-my ports are open-but it doesn't work.
I have tried soureforge, etc-no dice.

Can someone point the way to a service which is free, cheap, and can handle up to 1GB uploads per file?

What is your motivation behind this? Why would someone want to download a distro from a file sharing site? Have you considered starting a thread to find a solution to your BitTorrent issue? That way you wouldn't need to worry about storage and bandwidth, for the most part. BTW, this might get moved to General, as it isn't really a GNU/Linux question.

I have 2 posts-both long, about torrent attempts.
I can download and then seed a distro, but when I try to do one of mine-it just sits at stalled-I used this guide-
( http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.p...ting_a_torrent )
and Ktorrent.
I followed the directions to the letter-several times.

And it's not one distro-it's 6 distro's for 512MB USB, I also have many others-all with the latest distro's.

My motivation would of course be that it is far more prudent to put as many distro's as possible on CD/USB in the least amount of space without sacrificing usability.

I.E.-why waste a 700MB CD on a 400MB distro when you can fill it up.

There is also the uniqueness of it-How many multidistro's do you know of that are current and include the best distro's?

There is also my Qemu/DSL embedded which has a save feature for the Qemu DSL-meaning that both Qemu and a VHD where DSL saves to all fit in at under 100MB-yet the VHD's inside total over 2GB and saves all settings/mydsl,etc

I don't think there's too many people in the world that can do that-do you?

See the video below-

I would suggest to try transmission.
I tried it and I can seed via linuxtracker.org

Check out this site called www.in.com

They have a facility called inDrive whereby you can store large sized files online. Similar to the Google Drive facility that was introduced and later withdrawn.
