Regarding all Rapidshare links...(for now).

It was just brought to my attention that my Rapidshare links have all been set to "Private" and are apparently inaccessible to everyone except myself.  This is a Rapidshare-wide issue, and not limited to me.

I would appreciate it if some of you could "test" a random link or two, and report back the exact error you are receiving.  Played around with the settings in R/S and have seen no obvious way to get around this issue.  Could be a day or two (or perhaps longer) before everything is operational again.  *Sigh.*  Stay tuned.

The same thing happened to me.

No problem. One day they'll stop being tight wads...

The default access rights for RapidShare folders are changing today. A folder with no specific access rights will now be treated as a "private" folder. This means even if someone knows a download link of a file, the file cannot be downloaded as long as you don't change the setting. In your File Manager you can always check the access right setting of all folders.

If you 'right click' the folder you want to share, scroll down to privileges, then choose which radial button to activate below the eye, up arrow and down arrow, depending on what you want to allow.

Rolo Tomasi' right. See this of Rapidshare Support:

You are contacting us because you would like to share a file in your account with
First, you have to make sure that your user alias and folder alias is set. Please
check the account overview on the right hand side:

After that, you can set the privileges for a folder in the File Manager:

Please note that you can only set access rights for folders but not for individual
files. You can not set privileges on "My Folder" therefore you have to create a
sub folder. Just right click on the sub folder and choose "Privileges". Please
click on "Shares" and in the line "Public Access" tick the appropriate boxes for:
1. View: Users are allowed to see the folder content.
2. Download: Users are allowed to download data from this folder.
3. Upload: Users are allowed to upload data to this folder.

There are 2 different ways you can share the files with the public. You can
provide the download link to a file or you can provide the link to the entire
folder. On the bottom of the "Privileges" window you can find the folder link or
if you would like to share only one file, right click on the file and share it via
the share option.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Thanks for the help everyone. Nothing worked but noticed i had forgot to check the little square that made me sharing with people who are not in my userlist.
Thought Rapidshare was dead there for a while.
