Filespace Is No Longer Accepting Uploads

Filespace was a small personal file hosting site. It was open from 2003 to 2008 and hosted over 5 GB of files for 5,900 users.

Sadly, Filespace's database was lost in a disk crash, and although I still had the individual files, the passwords and email addresses associated with each file were lost. This made it impossible to fully restore the site. Given its increasing expense and lack of revenue for repairs or upkeep, I decided to take the files offline too.

In the last five years, however, the cost of hosting data online has fallen dramatically, so I've decided to put the files back online at their original addresses. Filespace will never accept uploads again, but hopefully this will fix hundreds of broken links to Filespace content.

I understand, however, that things may have changed in the last five years for former Filespace users, too. If you are a former Filespace user who would like a file taken down, please contact me at brent@filespace.org and I'll see what I can do.

I hope you enjoy this tiny slice of Internet history.
