4shared is a file-sharing service. It does not seem to have an inactivity time bomb, as files from 2009[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] are still there. Downloading will not be simple, as it uses a JavaScripty 60-second limit that seems to only be bypassable with a paid subscription. It has not been further tested (mobile version, noscript version, Googlebot?, etc...), at least by User:TheTechRobo. A more thorough analysis should be performed by him soon. It doesn't seem to have a relationship with 4chan.

There appears to be a sitemap at https://www.4shared.com/web/sitemap.xml. This should come in handy when archiving. Not sure if it's a complete sitemap, though.
