Description: Snap Drive offers online free file storage space and free filesharing service. The anonymous uploading form lets you upload image files free without registering, with 20 MB maximum filesize limit (20MB per file; JPEG, PNG, and GIF file extensions only). Or you can register free to get 2GB free web space for storing files online, with maximum file size limit of 100 MB (registering has instant activation). Registered users can upload many file types (JPG, JPEG, PNG, GIF, TXT, MP3, WAV, MOV, WMA, WMV, RAR, ZIP, TAR.GZ, SWF, XML, XSPF, FLV, M3U, ASF, 7Z, RM, ESP file extensions), and create an online photo gallery, as well as hotlink fullsize pictures (unregistered users can only hotlink thumnails), so can be used for ebay auctions, forums, blogs, and other websites. If you are uploading many files, you can use the batch upload feature to easily upload a ZIP file containing many files (your Zip file must be named "" or ""). Add music and videos to your website -- upload code to display music files and video files on your web site, Myspace, or Xanga profile. The free file sharing service can also be used to backup data files, transfer files between work, school, and home, email photos or videos, etc. You can use the SnapDrive support forum to get help.

About two weeks ago I posted a simple webpage with ten thumbs on it (all the exact same pic, same image, same dimensions, etc) but on ten different free image hosts, same deal for 800x600 exact same images linked TO each of those thumbs, each "big" pics linked to their respective thumb, on the same host. I wanted to test (by watching) how fast the thumbs load WHEN ALL VIEWED AT THE VERY SAME TIME, and test how fast EACH free host could push out the big image once the thumb was clicked.

The only free image host that stopped answering (loading the thumb image at all) after a few days was, and still IS, snapdrive. It appears their image server has "taken a dirtnap" or something - this after only VERY hits from me testing their abilities. It is not like my image load tests once every other day or so was killing their bandwidth or anything. These guys might be a good free image host if you just want to show your picture ONCE or TWICE, maybe... or perhaps you like to play "upload roultette" where you upload pix, but it may or may NOT show up a day or 2 later. Some folks might dig that sort of thing; I got no clue. :-(

p.s. I have been building sites and linking images since before cable modems were invented, during dialup days, so any problem is not at my end. All the other nine picture thumbs (and their big images, of course) still load today, as I type... and yes, I dump my cache first, and keep a running log of results. Snapdrive could more appropriately be named "deaddrive".

Space: 2.0 GB, Bandwidth: 100.0 GB/month, direct links (streaming videos). Your free hosting account will not expire unless it remains inactive for over 90 days. Just login every once in a while.

It does not host BMP files, as it claims! You can upload them, and it gives you a URL, but it does not display as an image. Oh well, it works okay for free hosting of large jpg images though.

Very good service, indeed! Though I have problems getting it to extract the .zip files I upload, even though I tick Extract .zip-archives. It just shows the archive as one file. But I have not really needed that yet. I can manage without zip-extracting.

I went through the registration process, and the account activation email took a while to come (went to the bulk mail folder also). Direct linking images (maybe other filetypes) works for the registered accounts, but if you do not register you can only hotlink the generated thumbnail (small image) to their web page with the full-size picture embedded. The control panel says the maximum file size is 98 MB (a little short of 100mb).
