Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I wonder if there are some websites that provide direct links to files that have been uploaded? By "direct links", I mean I can get links to the files on one machine, and the links are still good to use on another machine.

For example, I used to use http://ifile.it, which did provide direct links after "request download link", but it has changed to http://filecloud.io, the links I get after request downloadlink cannot be used on a different machine.

Thanks

@Bibhas: Dropbox seems not to provide the direct link that can be used on another computer. –  Tim Aug 25 '12 at 21:30
    
There is option to generate public url in Dropbox. –  Bibhas Aug 26 '12 at 7:10

Dropbox does. Right click the file and click Copy public URL and you can then paste the direct URL for that file.

The Public folder feature has been transformed; any file can be shared by generating it’s public link. See this help page for details. –  Alex Aug 30 '12 at 21:14
