Premium users can also buy additional traffic if needed.

Q: My download speed is slow, can it go faster ?

If you are a Premium user, you can try switching to a different download server, just go to your Settings page, choose another server and click Save Settings.
Otherwise, your ISP might be limiting your download speed.

Q: I've paid for an account but nothing happened ?

Transactions can be delayed up to a few days so it may take some time for your account to activate.
If you believe there are some problems, contact our support.

Q: I've clicked some files but aborted the download, yet my transfer was reduced for the whole file length! How come?

As soon as the download has started the transfer will be reduced by the file size. You can then restart or resume downloads
and your transfer won't be reduced (this works for as long as the file is cached on our servers).
So no need to worry, your transfer is reduced only ONCE.

Q: How do I setup my download manager?

Go to the section where you usually enter site logins, enter dl.sharedir.com as domain and your sharedir username/password.

Q: I'm using a download manager and files don't download correctly, what's wrong?

Due to the specific nature of download managers' connections, you may encounter errors when launching too many simultaneous downloads. The recommended configuration for download managers is 4 connections per IP and one file at a time.
If you don't have a Premium account you can only download one file at a time, no mupltiple simultaneous downloads.
Also, make sure you have enough traffic (bandwidth) available, otherwise your download manager will download a html page instead of the file you're trying to download.

Q: Can I use ShareDir PREMIUM to download files from other websites ?

Of course, you have several options:
  • you can click on 'Direct Download', paste the link there and download
  • generate the links yourself, ie. to download file at the address http://uploading.com/files/7ab47259, use this link http://dl.sharedir.com/?i=http:%2F%2Fuploading.com%2Ffiles%2F7ab47259
