Data[how to use] archiveteam_zippyshare was a temporary file sharing website. (It was "permanent" if uploads/file had enough activity.) In 2023-03-19, it was announced that it would shut down in 2023-03-31. In a post titled "Inofrmation about the closure of the project" it was stated that the site would shut down due to being an old/old-style website, being less popular, being ad-blocked, and not being able to pay for stuff like electricity. is excluded from the Wayback Machine, so is one source which can be used to discover files and accounts such as (182 pages of uploads, all alive as of writing this).

Zippyshare began in 2006. ZippyShare "outlived many similar websites, such as RapidShare, Hotfile, and Megaupload."[1]

How to download

Zippyshare loads direct download links (DDLs) via JavaScript. As a result, grab-site can't download DDLs (binary files or the payload files). Therefore, use grab-site to download many webpages. Next check the CDX file and/or wpull.log for URLs ending in "/file.html". Then make a list of all of those URLs that look like that and save it to a .txt file. Use this python script -- -- to download the DDLs via "/home/ubuntu/.local/bin/zippyshare-dl downloadlist.txt" or run "":


It seems to be the case that download pages linked from account pages (e.g., are also JavaScript/AJAX-loaded; this is another annoyance.
