Why do I see a server load too high message?

An explanation of server limits for free users.

If you are a free user, you may have come across the following error message:

Server load too high

To provide the best possible experience for our Premium members, we limit the number of simultaneous connections for free and anonymous users. The limit is for each server, not FileFactory as a whole. If you receive this error message when downloading a file, you may still be able to access files on another server; it all depends on the load on the server at that particular time.

We do this to ensure that our servers do not become overloaded. If you need a file urgently, it is recommended that you upgrade to our Premium service. Premium members have access regardless of the load on the server.
