Upload your files and folders to MediaFire via the desktop client and store them in a cloud. Generating a link for sharing with open or restricted access is possible. Synchronization of access to the files from multiple devices is possible. Pausing downloads and removing files is possible.

MediaFire Desktop is a neat cloud-based application that serves as a lesser-known, but competent alternative to services such as Dropbox of Google Drive.
In its core MediaFire Desktop is a client for the Web service of the same name. It provides a simple interface that helps users synchronize files between several devices, both stationary and mobile, and access such files at any moment. All types of data that you have stored using MediaFire are available at all times from any location, they can be shared with other users, and you also make sure that your information is not lost if the physical data storage device is broken or destroyed. Newer versions have the bonus feature of saving all of your file versions so that you could get back to an earlier draft of a document, for example.

There are also some additional options concerning shared file access and document collaboration, as well as advanced file/folder sharing options, even with advanced statistics available to premium users. For example, you can now stream videos and edit tables, spreadsheets, etc. By default, there are 10GB of free storage space. This can be later extended to 50GB.

Overall, MediaFire Desktop is a competent app for accessing and using a solid developing cloud storage service. It has several useful features I haven't encountered before, so it's well worth the attention.
