Where to upload large (0.5Gb) weights anonymously?


I need to upload a number of checkpoints for ConvNets (weights + optimizers, all dicts of pytorch tensors), each about 0.5Gb anonymously. I don't want to use Google Drive. I trained models on the university cluster (if it's relevant).

Where can I load these files anonymously? The files must be publicly available, but my identity must remain anonymous.

file.io or transfer.sh are good choices. transfer.sh has a 14 day lifespan for all files, while you can increase or decrease the lifespan on file.io. Additionally, you can use both from a command line or terminal via curl, and they're anonymous.

neither did the job, unfortunately – Alex – 2020-06-01T19:22:44.113

What were the problems you had with the sites? – Shan S – 2020-06-02T01:52:53.093

For file.io the file is deleted after the first download, and the link has the same problem as Google Drive (wget doesn't recognize it), and 14 days limit doesn't work for me, it must be much longer – Alex – 2020-06-02T11:12:59.340

I download from their site using wget, you have to rename the output file and set its file extension though. I normally use wget -O new_filename https://file.io/XXXXX or just download it and rename it later. You can also increase the 14 day limit by using w, m, or y to set expiration in weeks, months, or years. I haven't used that before but assume it'd be used as curl -F "file=@test.txt" https://file.io/?expires=1y. Check https://www.file.io/#one for more usage details. Hope this helps
