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.

  • @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
