Data[how to use] archiveteam_mediafire

Mediafire is a file hosting service with file synchronisation features. It launched around June 2006.[1]

On December 18 2020, users reported that they began receiving emails from MediaFire how they plan to classify accounts as abandoned if they fail to meet certain criteria, starting in January.[2] This policy, however, had been in effect for many years prior, as later confirmed by MediaFire.[3]

How to help if you have lists of URLs

This project requires lists of URLs for content on the target website. If you have a source of URLs, please:

  1. Use the PCRE regular expression (mediafire\.com|mfi\.re)\S+ for filtering.
    • Note that this regex is intentionally broad to cover many different URL formats. Please do not try to use a more narrow pattern as it may miss valid URLs. We can always filter or transform the results as needed later.
    • Enable case-insensitive matching (e.g. -i option on grep) to not miss URLs with capitalised domains or similar.
    • If you use grep, remember to include the -a (aka --text on GNU grep) option to ensure it will continue searching for matches when encountering binary data.
    • Example command (GNU grep): grep -Pahoi '(mediafire\.com|mfi\.re)\S+' FILENAME FILENAME...
  2. If the output exceeds a few megabytes, please compress it, preferably using zstd -10.
  3. Upload the file to
  4. Share the resulting URL in the project IRC channel.
    • If you would like to keep the list non-public instead, e.g. for privacy reasons or for not wanting to be publicly associated with it, please get in touch with a channel op (e.g. arkiver or JustAnotherArchivist). Note that the items generated from your list would still be processed publicly, of course, but they would be mixed with everything else.
