Starfiles now features a recommended files section at the bottom of the home page and file pages. The list of files automatically changes. Files show as "Recommended" "Trending" "Hot" "Popular" and more. This allows for better file discovery and will increase the potential viewership of public files.
You are now able to link an email address to Starfiles! With a linked email, you are able to recover lost accounts and enable Two Factor Authentication for security.
Introducing the "hidden" privacy mode for files and folders.
Public: The file/folder is publicly available, anyone can see it. We tell Google and other search engines to specifically list the page.
Unlisted: Anyone with the URL can access the file/folder. Google will only index the page if the URL is posted somewhere publicly where Google can see (e.g social media).
Hidden: Anyone with the URL can access the file/folder. We tell Google and other search engines to specifically not list your page.
Protected: A password is needed to access the file/folder.
You can now browse public files and folders on Starfiles!
You can now rate files and folders on Starfiles. An average of each file/folder's ratings will show on it's page along with Google if your file is marked as public.
When deleting your files and folders from Starfiles, they are now moved to your trash. They can be permanently deleted from there. Your files can be recovered from your trash if you change your mind.
A little under 6 months ago we introduced our partner program. It was a wild success for eligible members, with them receiving 30% of what we earn on their files. We have updated the program so more members are eligible.
- Increased payouts: We have decided to up our payouts. You guys are the ones uploading the files, you deserve an equal share. The payouts have increased from 30% to 50%. That's right, half of what we earn off your files is sent straight to you.
- New criteria: We want to include as many people as possible in our partners program. To meet the criteria, you must have at least 15 downloads a month on your files, with at least one of them having 5 or more downloads.
After the folder update, we decided it was time to update files too! Here's what's new:
- File locking: You can now disable downloads on specific files.
- File descriptions: You can now write file descriptions.
We also made some other changes. We added an option to make folders public. When a folder is made public, anyone can see it. The public Discord feed now shows folders too. We also added a bunch more API endpoints for our developers.
Using both starfiles.co and starfiles.ml? Your profiles will automatically sync, so when you upload a file to one, you can also access it on the other.
If your folder is listed on Google, the folder description will now be visible.
You can now set custom file ids.
Files and folders now show view counts.
You can now change folder permissions. You can invite others to modify your folder along with adding limits to certain functions. There is a config panel at the bottom of every folder.
Introducing public files! You can mark a file as public to make it visible to everyone. Public files will be listed in our sitemap which means it could show up on google.
There is now a live feed of all public files on our Discord server!
Starfiles Droppers have been very popular. We realised that many new users have no idea about their power. We have decided to merge folders and droppers. Dropper functionality is now available as an option in every folder. All existing droppers have been converted to folders.
We decided to give folders a little buff too! Heres what's new in folders:
- Custom IDs: You are now able to change a folder's id/link. Simply go to the config panel at the bottom of every folder.

File downloads are now processed within Starfiles. When you click the download button, the file won't show in your downloads until it is complete. This should make file downloads more stable.
We refreshed the search bar. The search bar has a more modern look, with the sort options attached directly to it.
