The FTP Site Boneyard

This collection contains .tar or .zip files of the collections of these sites, which are then browsable using the Internet Archive's archive view functionality.

Created in 1971 (and refined in 1985), the File Transfer Protocol allowed Internet or network-connected computers to transfer binary and ASCII files between each other. To facilitate transferring of files in a pre-WWW era, FTP sites allowing anonymous or open-access connections became available worldwide. As they were often connected to machines with sizable resources, these FTP Sites became magnets for large amounts of data, totaling in the hundreds of megabytes (and later gigabytes) and allowing hundreds (later thousands) of simultaneous users.

As websites provided easier and easier access, FTP sites have fallen by the wayside as primary distribution channels, and decade-plus sites that were once the primary sources for various types of files have fallen into disrepair or quiet deaths.

Archive of the FTP site 70.58.96.236 . It contains various software such as a backup tool (BAckupexc) and a malicious removal tool, StickyNotes, some test pages & uploads, what I think is a guide to a Symantec program, Microsoft Office 2003 files (unsure if it's the entire thing), and some PDF documents. The FTP site's average bandwidth is like 60KB/s, so be thankful I left my poor computer running for all this time to download the entire thing. Also, some large files were excluded from the...

Crawl of the FTP site ftp://www.dsma.dp.ua/ in April 2015. I struggled to compress because of the site's size and have used the "tar" method for the first time. I had to compress the files into three separate .tar files because the tar program stops compressing a .tar file once that file reaches 4.0 GB. I apologize if some files became corrupt in the process.
