What happened to the MediaFire Desktop client? I had it installed until recently when I started having problems so I uninstalled it. Now I can no longer find a download for the newest version on their website but I found one here. If I try to install it, it tells me that I already have the newest version installed, though I don't have it anymore.

How do I fix this and has the client actually been discontinued?

  • Yeah, softonic sucks but at least I found one working download link on there for the client. I'll see if the installation works again now after using CCleaner's registry cleaning functionality. Edit: Nope but I will try doing it manually now – BullyWiiPlaza May 30 '16 at 19:08

The desktop client will be discontinued as from Jul 30 2016 and will no longer work.

Presumably because of this it is no longer available for download from their website.

See the MediaFire blog post below.

Shutting down MediaFire Desktop, new desktop app coming

May 18, 2016

At MediaFire, we endeavour to always provide the best possible experience for our users, this requires an intense focus on building and supporting the features that can provide the largest benefit to our users. We also recognise that the currently vibrant ecosystem of cloud syncing clients provides many alternative choices for customers looking for that desktop syncing functionality.

As such, we have chosen to discontinue development and support of MediaFire Desktop so that we can focus on the development of a new and improved Desktop app that will make storing and sharing your files with MediaFire even easier.

This discontinuation of MediaFire Desktop will be effective starting on July 30th, 2016. Beyond that date, we will no longer be providing support for MediaFire Desktop which will cease to function.

All files that were synced will continue to be available to manage and share through your account on MediaFire.com and MediaFire’s mobile apps for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Windows Phone.

In the meantime, we’re hard at work on further improvements to the MediaFire features that our users have most demanded. We’ll keep you posted on new developments as we get closer to launching!
