SPECIAL NOTICE: Links To ALL Shows On The Site Thru 2017-07-24 @ 6:11 PM CST

This is my first upload I made to the Amazon Drive account after I bought a 15 month account.  This has all of the uploads I have made to this site.  And as my previous post indicates and details, Amazon Drive screwed all of us account holders over by no longer offering unlimited storage after they baited us in with the offer.  I am still upset at Amazon and don't even want to buy anything from or through them at this point.
There are some errors, caused by Amazon's stoneage system of failing uploads and downloads with no messages to let users know, in the Journey folder where complete uploads did not occur for some of the shows.  So look carefully at the files before you decide to download and make sure tracks are not missing.

Here's the real kicker in limitations that Amazon imposed on all users.  You can only download 5 GB at a time.  I believe you can download multiple (I think 5) downloads simultaneously but if they exceed 5 GB then you have to pick and chose what you want to download first and then get the rest next.  On 2 DVD copies or DL DVD's you will need to download 1 DVD at a time (2 DVD sets) or download part of the DL DVD's and then go back and get the rest of it in another download.
Amazon Drive names all files with a name like "Amazondownload.rar" or something similar and zips them with this name.  So you cannot download multiple folders or files into just one folder because each time you start a new download it will have the same name as the last download.  That is until it is unzipped and then whatever I named it (the folder) is there.  You can pick multiple folders and download them at the same time as long as they don't exceed 5 GB at a time.  So if you were to be downloading five 1969 Led Zeppelin shows that were under 1 GB each, it would download them as one file with the Amazon default name.  And when you unzip them the individual folders will all be there.
Amazon is cutting off my account since I set it not to renew my account (otherwise I'd be needing $1800 - $2000 a year instead of the $60 they were offering).  The account should be good until June 28th at 6:11 PM Central Standard Time.  Then they will delete my account and files.
I've actually deleted my own files with the exception of the folder named "BBBB Uploads" which has the links to everything on this site (Bootradr's Blind Boot Blog).  A few files I did change up and instead of being two or three links like in their post I made them into one link.  Nothing was uploaded in the zipped format but Amazon dowes zip them up when you download them. Some were uploaded via FileFactory in the past with multiple download links if they were 1 GB or over.  Even smaller files were set up with multiple links in the earlier FileFactory days when the files had to be 200 MB or less per file.  So if you have been trying to get a show but the FileFactory links have gone bad or maybe even one link has gone bad, you will need to download the full show again via Amazon Drive's site.
I am looking at other file sharing/storage sites now and trying to find something I can afford to purchase as well as a site that offers the basic features (like file size...Amazon doesn't even tell you how big a download is) and will let me store at least 2 TB or more for a decent rate.  If anyone can recommend a site, please do so in the comments area.  I'd appreciate it.  I want unlimited storage but I'll look at any good deals that offer at least 1 TB or more.  And thanks you!
Be sure to get this stuff quickly because Amazon gives no care or room to make it easier for us.
I hope you can get what you want and thanks again for any file sharing/storage recommendations...



  1. Hey man, I appreciate just how frustrating things can get. I just wanted to say that I really appreciate all the shares you've given us and all the hard work it's taken. Thank you Bootradr.

    1. Thanks Dave! I just wanted to let you know to check the first post on the site for the new, 7 days only Knebworth Masters 3 DVD set you were wanting to get earlier. The links expire on 2017-07-21 buddy!


  2. Thank you Dave! I appreciate your comment. As much as I enjoy sharing these recordings you are right about it sometimes being frustrating with the PC's, file sharing sites, and whatever technical issues that seem to be possible popping up :-) I'll just be glad when I can get back into a normal pattern and start uploading again buddy!

    Thanks for the nice comment. I really appreciate that...
