7 day free trial - so you can hopefully get out of it before getting ripped off
DOES NOT WORK - NO EASY CANCELLATION - NO WAY TO CONTACT CS - INTERFACE JUST FOR SHOW
I signed up for the 7 day free trial and attempted 4 times to upload a 2.2GB file. The loading bar reached 100% in about 3 minutes - WAY too fast for such a large file, and every time it finished, there was no link, and my storage showed zero used. I also tried testing an upload of a really small file, 14MB, and the loading bar took EXACTLY the same amount of time to reach 100% (no link, no storage used). This leads me to believe that the interface is a total facade... My guess is that all files regardless of size will "load" just as fast, and have no resulting actual upload, and the cheap price of this service probably means this guy makes a lot from the complacent crowd who doesn't think it's worth fighting for their $1-$5 back.UPDATE: PLEASE READ!
The simple interface also lacks any direct contact info (just a contact form, which no one so far has answered for 4 days - not even an automatically generated "we've received your request" email), or any option to cancel your account. I had to contact Paypal in order to stop payments to Filedropper. In case anyone else is having issues or would like to make a complaint through Paypal or elsewhere, the merchant's email is: jitenagrawal at yahoo dot com

Filedropper is a full-on P2P site scam. Once you try to contact them through their online form, they will send you an email response that contains malware that will run in the background and share ALL of your files. DO NOT click on any links or download ANYTHING from these emails. DO NOT share any links generated by this site. They will infect your computer and make all your files public.
The merchant of Filedropper has set up this exact same scam in the past: "File Savr" and "Wikiupload" worked exactly the same way and enticed people with very attractive prices for cloud storage services. The owner, "Jay Kumar" has been doing this since 2005 or longer, and continues to operate Filedropper.
