4shared - Online storage comes to your desktop.

4shared is a desktop cloud storage app for Windows devices. It offers both hosting services and the ability to share files with users worldwide. Available on both web and app, 4shared offers users up to 100 GB of storage.

The platform comes with a wide variety of features, such as the ability to upload a file by dragging and dropping, an automatic virus scanner, an online compression tool, an automatic backup system, and a file restorer, among others. Other alternative services include Google Drive and Dropbox.

A fast and reliable cloud storage provider

4shared provides a desktop app to quickly store your data in the cloud. The advantages of uploading data to online storage are virtually unlimited, highlighting the ability to access your private data anytime and anywhere. 4shared not only provides this service, but does so through an intuitive control panel.

By using 4shared's services, users can easily share documents, photos, music files, videos, and much more with their colleagues, friends, and family. Additionally, users can share content through embedded links. The app also allows for automatic file sharing through previously linked social media accounts.


Stream music and videos directly from your desktop

Windows users can stream music and video files from 4shared with just one click. Search for the file you want to play and click on the "Stream multimedia file" icon. The video or music will start playing in a pop-up window. If you use 4shared on your mobile device, you also have the option to create playlists and add files to the next playback queue. All audio and video files can be shared through links.


Create backups and recover deleted files

The backup and file recovery features are limited to 4shared Premium users. To use the backup function, users must download the app on their PC and add files and folders to the sync list. Since 4shared servers regularly back up data, users can rest assured that they will not lose any data. Additionally, if a user deletes a file, it will remain in the recycle bin for a minimum of 24 hours.

Should I download 4shared on my PC?

4shared also offers cloud storage through web, desktop, and mobile apps, and it is available for free to everyone. Users can make the most of the drag and drop feature to upload online content and share it with friends and colleagues or on social networks.
