Maybe Windows or Gnome client supports generating such links.
Do you have an example of such 'shareable link' ?
That's weird, I have that option for every file and folder - it's the first option when you click the blue arrow at the right when hovering over the file/folder. What you get is something like this: http://db.tt/qf1PE5z
which gives you a viewable version of the file, if you have flash and a link to direct download like https://dl.dropbox.com/s/5t9r3l91bju...tions.pdf?dl=1
These seem to be completely public.
Btw, today I restarted Kindle and it was extremely unresponsive, so I logged in through putty and top reported the freedownload process taking some 98% of cpu - any idea what could have been happening? Could there be any problem when connected via USB, but not doing mass storage, rather a usbnetwork?
[EDIT] Just happened again - I noticed fsp was taking part of the load as well, when I killed freedownloader, fsp stopped being that active and all was well [/EDIT]
