Downloading large data from RapidShare has always been an problem because of 100 MB segments of files, which are formed by splitting large files. It was previously not allowed for users to upload files of size more than 100 Mb. But recently RapidShare has made an alteration to this rule.
RapidShare now allows uploading files up to 200 Mb, leading to a small relief for hardcore RapidShare Downloaders. Although increasing this File upload limit wont affect users who download large chunks of files.
But I hope one day will come when RapidShare will not have any waiting time for downloads and free users also would be able to download more than one file simultaneously.
