The Hypnosis RetroShare Network is a free, anonymous file sharing network with tens of thousands of files available.
Retroshare uses Tor, an anonymous and secure network, so setting it up takes a bit more time than just creating an account on a website but it's worth it.
It's now much easier to get in (broken down in very small steps):
1. Get Retroshare (Tor Only version) Qt5, Portable: http://retroshare.net/downloads.html
2. Extract the folder somewhere you like
3. Start retroshare.exe that is inside the folder you just extracted
4. Choose a username, a password, move your mouse arround a bit and press "Go!"
5. Wait until tor establishes a connection
6. Retroshare is open and ready to connect to the network. We now need to register you with the keyserver
7. Download the tor browser. You just need it once: https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en
8. Extract it and run it
9. Go to the following url: http://scwmwsig5mvoyz32.onion
10. Click on English
11. Open Retroshare in the first ("Home") tab
12. Copy the big block of text. That's your certificate/key
13. Paste it in the box on the website
14. Solve the captcha and press "Validate"
15. The server gives you it's own certificate back. Copy it and go back to retroshare
