Anyone used this?

O&O FileDirect

  • Sharing files made easy
  • Unlimited number of recipients
  • Files will be transferred directly from your PC and the target device – no in-between storage on external computers
  • The recipient needs only a current browser* running on an ordinary device
  • Anonymous and secure
  • Freeware, no registration necessary
  • Supports Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7
O&O FileDirect makes it easy to share files and folders with an unlimited number of recipients (File Transfer). You maintain absolute control over who should be allowed to access these files. No need for any cloud services or worrying about the size of email attachments. Your files will only be shared between the computer where the files are saved and the computer, tablet, laptop, mobile phone of the recipient where the files will be downloaded.

The recipient needs only the link that O&O FileDirect generates and a current browser. O&O FileDirect requires no installation. Share files of any size quickly, easily, and – most important – securely.

Using a simple interface, you indicate the file that should be shared. O&O FileDirect then generates an individual link that you send to the contact. The recipient doesn’t need to install O&O FileDirect in order to download the file.
*The only thing needed is a current browser running on an ordinary device (list of supported browsers = Firefox, Opera, Chrome --but not IE/ME).

Due to the way an internet connection is established it is not always possible to directly connect two participants with each other, due for instance to NAT Gateways and Firewalls.
The use of the O&O Software server enables a browser and O&O FileDirect to establish such a connection. Only so-called metadata is passed through this server, such as the file name, file size and data required to build a connection. Furthermore, this data is not saved on the server at any time, but is resent by O&O FileDirect when a browser requests it.
As soon as the connection is made, the browser and O&O FileDirect communicate with each other directly and the authorized data can then be exchanged.
The senders computer be running & connected to the internet in order for someone else to download the file because the download will be run directly from this computer. This also has, however, an advantage in that no one will be able to download the file whenever the computer is shut down or separated from the Internet.

O&O FileDirect has no limitation regarding size. Limitations are based only on the amount of available space and any browser specific restrictions.


** notes: the info says "no installation required", but this appears to mean only for any recipients, as it installed on my PC (as the sender).? also, the download link is for a "starter" point exe, as clicking it after it's quick download makes a connection to download the actual 14mb program.

Is it voluntary? (because if it isn't, what inherently is it?)
And can it be voluntary, if there's indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, threats & initiation of violence?
[not to be confused with asking: can it be said to be "voluntary" even when such is present.?]
