There’s lots of files I want to share but google drive doesn’t seem too viable due to how easily it fills up. I was considering discord..would that be viable though?

I was also considering using MEGA, but the same issue is there: easily fills up. Please do recommend some good file hosts down below!

True, I mostly got the idea from a server I’m in that share a bunch of gfx resources and all the files are hosted within the server itself. But discords file limit isn’t good enough, even with nitro.

I'd say it is but the file's existance is not guaranteed so, not reliable for some stuff. But mostly they files stay there, I have a 3 years old file in a DM and it's still downloadable and the speeds are fine as well Smile

A compromise I'm considering is just using it for single files that don't have much accompanying content.

I haven't seen it being used as a file host though. What kind of files are you looking to share? You can always just upload them on something like Anonfiles and share them that way. That's also what I tend to do.

Mainly after effects projects, I'll be sure to check out Anonfiles.
