I’ve been getting some complaints about the Amazon hoster so I wanted to create a special spot just for that. How is Amazon working for you? Several people have noted that their web browser seems to think the links contain viruses. On my end I can promise that I’m not putting anything nasty into the links and I can’t imagine Amazon is doing something like that.
From my understanding Amazon Cloud Drive isn’t really intended for sharing files in the manner that I am sharing them. I think its supposed to be more of a cloud backup system, or perhaps something like Drop Box. They have share links but I’m guessing those are intended for sharing with just one or two people, perhaps in a work collaboration or something similar and not shared with hundreds of strangers across the globe.
However I see nowhere in their terms and conditions that you aren’t allowed to share like I am so I’m going with it. But, based upon this concept I’m thinking that some browsers are looking at those links and thinking something fishy is going on.
From what I hear those who are getting the messages are able to simply bypass it and continue onto the downloads. I do apologize if you are getting that message, but I don’t know how to fix it.
A few others have complained that they are simply unable to download the files at all. Those of you who are able to download regularly might be able to help with this better than me. From what I see you simply click on the file you want, it then highlights itself and a little download button appears at the bottom of the page.
If you are having trouble with the downloads would you please leave a comment here. Also please tell us exactly what problems you are encountering and what type of computer you are using as well as what browser you are experiencing the problem on.
Again I apologize and hope that we can get things fixed.
