How to Download Files from the Web Directly to your Online Drives
Want to upload Files hosted on web without downloading them to pc and uploading to dropbox.Amit Agarwal over at labnol.org recently developed a web app that lets u upload web files directly to your dropbox,google drive,skydrive and box storage
Copy Internet files to your account, via the cloud
To get started, put the URL of any web file in the input box, pick a storage service and copy of that file should appear in your cloud drive in no time. You may even put web page URLs in the input box and in that case, the HTML page will get saved to your online drive. There are a couple of benefits. One, if you are on a mobile phone or a tablet, you can quickly save any file from the Internet to your online drives without using a single byte of 3G data connection as the file transfer will happen via the cloud. The app can work as a proxy as well allowing you to download files from websites that may otherwise be blocked /inaccessible in your country /workplace. All you need to know is the URL of the file. Chromebook users may find this even more useful as the SkyDrive or Dropbox clients cannot be installed on these machines. Similar to Podcast Gallery, the file saving app is also powered by Ink File Picker.
Alternatives include SideCloudLoad and URL Droplet but they only work with Dropbox and also have certain limitations on the file sizes that you can transfer.
