Rapidshare is probably the most popular file-hosting service these days. Millions of shared files - e-books, music, videos, and documents are hosted in their servers. However, if you are free users, you face a lot of limitations such as the download limit and waiting time, unless you became a premium member.
But like any other programs, there are a thousand ways available in the net to bypass the download limit. One of it I found useful was the Download Direct software released by Sendbit.
Download Direct (also known as DLD) was developed to accelerate your downloads by up to 500% (sometimes more) and let you manage them via one central screen.
Rapid Download Direct has great features:
-Accelerates downloads up to 500% (sometimes more). This can be a great help especially to dial-up users.
