Q. Your system reports that I download files or that I have already downloaded too much. But I have not downloaded anything! What is wrong?
A. Rapidgator system uses your IP-address in order to count the number of downloads. If you receive such message and you really have not downloaded anything, then you probably use a proxy server, which is simultaneously used by other people. You should disable the proxy server. If your provider does not allow it – the only possible solution in this case is to buy Premium-account. Premium-Account is used to recognize users cookies, instead of IP-address.
