Ziff Davis Closing FileFront

Popular mirror and download site FileFront today revealed that it will "indefinitely suspend" site operations on March 30, 2009 due to current economic conditions. The sited urged users to download and archive any files they may want before that date.

While owner Ziff Davis recently sold the bulk of its video game-related sites, which also resulted in the closure of print magazine EGM, buyer UGO was reportedly uninterested in FileFront. The site continued operations as part of Ziff's PCMag Digital Network.

"We would like to give a warm thank you to all of you who have been part of the FileFront communities we have built together," reads FileFront's farewell. "Your support has had a meaningful impact for all of us here at FileFront. Again, we want to give you a sincere 'thank you' for your support over the years and wish you all the very best."
