All files you upload to Rodfile are not publicly accessible and can only be downloaded if you choose to share them with others (by giving them the sharing URL). As part of our 'Advanced Features' range Rodfile also allows you to make all of your files private at any time thus providing you with an extra layer of security for confidential and/or sensitive files.

12. How to upload with FTP?
Uploading to Rodfile with FTP is simple; start by downloading an FTP client such as FileZilla then just follow the instructions in the client. Uploading via FTP only allows you to upload and make folders, but downloading, renaming or moving your files are not supported
13. Can I resume broken downloads?
This feature is only available to Premium users. All Premium accounts support the use of third party download-accelerators which allows you to resume incomplete downloads.
14. My download has completed but I can't open the files.
We have no control over this error, if you're experiencing this problem please contact the person who sent you the link.
15. Am I able to browse every file on the server?
For privacy reasons you are only permitted to download the files which you have the link for.
16. Why are my speeds so slow when I download a file?
Unlike other services there aren't as many restrictions on the limitations given to our free users so you can download faster than rival sites and can also download more than one file as well as larger files. However, we do have set priority for our Premium members meaning that they will always have bandwidth privileges compared to free accounts. In times of heavy traffic this will decrease the speeds you will receive when downloading from our site. It also depends on your connectivity to our server network, your upload speed may be limited and slower than what you expect.
17. I can't download anymore files, is this normal?
This error usually occurs when a free account / shared IP has reached their download limit for the mentioned duration or they are attempting to download more than one file at a time.
