Files deleted!

I realized that today Rapidshare has deleted many of the videos I uploaded (Nico, Velvet Undeground, Byrds, Kevin Ayers, Pentangle). It says they are forbidden to be shared and that complaints has been received. What does it means? Who complained about what? What's the problem with sharing old music videos? Any of you bloggers have the same problem? Do I have to use another site, like Sendspace as example?

Any suggestion would be appreciated, I'm quite discouraged :(

Mirco la cosa è incredibile!! Non vorrei che il problema sia conseguente alla manutenzione del servizio: da quindici giorni ho scoperto e ho preso tranquillamente i video anni 60 , per non parlare di WFMU dove ci sono video di Lennon e Iggi, per esempio, postati da mooolto tempo.
Un ultima cosa:mi sono accorto solo adesso che ieri il file dei Velvet sono riuscito a scaricarlo ma me lo dà in formato zip con applicazione default per essere aperto tale BOMArchiveHelper (mai sentito, ho usato Stuffit 10.0 per Mac, niente da fare)

Tutta la mia solidarietà, ciao

I have also noticed this happening on various other blogs... files I've tried to get have come up with that message. Rapidshare are under maintenance at the moment and getting any files off them is near impossible.

It does seem that using Sendspace or another fileshare server is the best option. I've had no problems with Sendspace at all, plus if you register (for free) you can keep track of all your uploads and see exactly how many times they have been downloaded!

Im sad and sorry this has happened though many other bloggers will be discovering the same dilemma. Hope you can find a solution and get back up and running.
All the best,

Hi Mirco....don't let it get you down mate.
One of the biggest problems in my opinion, is links being taken and posted in other places, where there are trolls hanging around.
I hope you get everything sorted, because I didn't get a chance to get your Pentangle clip.

Good luck.

hello, how to use rapidshare without beeing deleted ?
Put on your blog a link rapidshare countaining not the album but an another link rapidshare to download your album.
So when bastards want to delete your music, they only delete a link and not an album.

probabilmente a qualche major dava fastidio. anche in passato sono spariti video e audio dei "velvet underground", e succede al volo se uno posta "elvis costello". evidentemente su qualche artista c'è maggior controllo... perché c'è l'interesse di qualcuno

Hi Detroitsuperfly, I'm so sorry...having your site deleted is a terrible thing, it was a cool blog :(

I'd like to thank everyone for your suggestions, I'll take advantage of them to try to keep on working on this blog. Anyway I don't think it's a problem due to the manteinance on Rapidshare, files are not just unavailable, they have been deleted and I don't think they'll reappear the next year...

Per Emanuele: mi è stato suggerito di caricare su Rapidshare solo files compressi e protetti da password, per maggior sicurezza (e ciò nonostante...), anche se questo complica un po' le cose. Io mi trovo benissimo con ZipGenius 6, è gratuito e parla anche io uso Windows, non so come vada con Mac...comunque ricorda che la password è musicforyoureyes.

Thanks again, I hope we will have to talk just about music in the future.

Happy new year, see you on 2006

Hi Mirco!
Thanks for your comment on my blog! I do hope you can get this one up and running again since it was a very promising one! I too am dismayed that Detroit Superflys' blog has been deleted. This is terrible and I hope we can get round these problems that have been arising since these blogs rock!

Anyway... as a treat and by request, I've posted one of the two appaearances by The Creation on "BeatBeatBeat!" on my own blog. Hope you enjoy it!
All the best and best wishes for 2006,

Its nothing personal by Rapidshare. Anything reported to them as a complaint is immediately deleted - no questions asked. It happens - probably a troll or your stuff is being posted on other sites. Do not be discouraged;this is a great blog. Just re-up the stuff.

Cheers and good luck

I guess I can leave a message; I thought I had to "register". That didn't work.
Anyway, I have given MIRCO a couple of ideas .

Keep it goin' man!

the silver lining is the files you are still able to share, whether they have no copyright protection, whatever: Be glad for what you have, not sorry for what you have not. and thanx for sharing man - that's quite righteous despite the bastards

make 2 folders,
put the file you want to share inside folder 1, then put folder 1 inside folder 2, then add folder 2 to zip or rar, with a password (make sure the folders have short, nonsense names)

I am suffering the same problem with Rapidshare and there thinking of switching to or likewise. It is so anyoing when some weakminded wipeass destroys your files at RS. But keep on doing the right thing, so will i.
