It has stopped working. You click upload, wait, and then you get the same screen back (the home page). Where is the URL for my file? Seemingly it is no longer functioning.

FileWind is easily one of the best file hosting sites I know. However I do have one complaint; very rarely when you upload a file, it skips the page that gives you the link to your file, which obviously makes the file inaccessible to everyone, including the uploader.

No login - it just works. Good stuff!

Well, FileWind got a nice solution of the problem "sharing files to friends, fast and easy", though for me it does not work to upload a 200 mb movie clip file. I have tried 3 times to upload a little movie in the .AVI fileformat, and all 3 times I got an errorpage saying the servers are either full or wrong somehow. After that I tried to upload a song file that was around 3.5 mb and it worked just fine, with no bugs at all.

I would say the site is not serving its purpose correctly, because I can not find it working whatever I do on the large files, though that would be an unfair judgment. I can see that there are a lot of people that it succeeds to upload their files, which makes me think, what did I do wrong? There is not that much you can do wrong really, since the website is really clean and shows its purpose clearly. But I would guess there is some easy bugfix for this problem, or maybe my browser or computer or ISP are causing a time-out when uploading large files so they do not finish loading.

:-) I Like the web site design of the site; it shows you right away what it is made for, and is really easy to use.
:-) They have a contact page where you can ask about problems like these.
:-( When you upload a file, there is nothing telling you how long time it will take. I had to make a calculation on my own. An upload status bar would be great to add.
:-( There is nothing on the site telling you why error pages occur or how to fix it.
:-( The main function is not working correctly: the ability to upload huge files that are up to 500 mb big.

Great host, simple but fast, and giving fantastic 500 MB space. What do you want more? ;-)

Great host with fast download speeds and upload speeds, and with 500 MB file limit that has endless possibilities.

I have looked at a lot of filehosts, but this is the best free filehoster out there with 500 MB space!

Cool, very simple, nice, easy, with non-advertising uploads. I reccommend it. ;-)

The best, simplest free file hosting server with not many ads, and no registration needed! Simply the best.

Awesome! No registration required. You can upload large file sizes, with many file types supported. Downloads have no wait, and blazing fast downloads. What more could you ask for?
