Ripping Rapidshare for Free Stuff

September 27th, 2005

Rapidshare is a little service that allows people to upload files… and then allows anybody else to download these files. Rapidshare could care less if the files are archives, videos, music files, or whatever. As you can imagine, these files are often from the dark side of the internet.

I just validated another one of MickeyMouse’s recipes. This tutorial explains how to use google to search all the files available on rapidshare. Kick butt idea!

In just searching for a few minutes, I found several music mash-up files that made me chuckle. It is obvious that a ton of non-DRM protected media could be obtained using this technique.

As Mickey suggests, combining this technique with AlexTheBeast’s tutorial on beating rapidshare download limits and waiting times should be very interesting.
