   eMule is a free peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing client for Microsoft Windows that was launched in 2002 as an alternative to eDonkey2000. To date, eMule is one of the world’s largest and most trustworthy P2P file-sharing clients. eMule includes advanced search features, file checks for corruptions while downloading, a preview while downloading function, and a credit system to reward frequent uploads.

  Editor's Review

   eMule is one of the world’s largest and most trusted P2P file-sharing clients, allowing you to quickly find any type of file (audio, video, text, etc.), including some extremely rare content. eMule connects to both the eDonkey and the Kad networks, which results in a higher transfer speed and faster distribution of popular files. With a vast network of servers and clients (like you) uploading and downloading files all over the world respectively, eMule reduces recovery times for corrupted downloads. Additionally, a credit system rewards you for frequent uploads, cutting down wait time where you are owed credit. And eMule helps you save bandwidth by transmitting data in zlib-compressed form.

eMule at a Glance

   eMule is easy to install with its quick start wizard; however, it may intimidate beginners when it asks for some networking information upfront, which you can either enter or bypass. Upon launch, eMule displays the Server tab with a list of servers to connect to, where finding content is as easy as typing the filename, and adding search conditions. You can chat with friends across the globe using eMule’s built in IRC client. And the Share Files tab lets you keep track of your shares, including requests, accepted uploads, and transferred files.

Product Details

   Here is a detailed breakdown of eMule’s features:
     * Kad network support—eMule supports the Kad network using the Kademlia protocol, which acts as a distributed system.
     * Queue and credit system—You get the files you want with rewards for your uploads to the network.
     * Intelligent corruption control—eMule checks files for corruption during downloads to confirm that they are error free, helping speed up the correction of corrupted chunks so that they do not need to be re-downloaded entirely.
     * Simultaneous downloads with preview—You can start a series of downloads and preview videos while they are in progress.
     * Built in Web services/server—You can quickly access local, global, and Web-based servers (Jigle and Filedonkey) across the Internet.
     * Advanced search—eMule provides Boolean searches, adding flexibility to your inquiries.
     * Messaging system—You can chat with friends across the globe using eMule’s built in IRC client. And a friend’ list lets you see when friends are online.



   With eMule it’s easy to share a wide selection of file types and download some some extremely rare files, while it filters corrupt Web files. eMule doesn’t automatically configure firewalls. At times, downloads may slow but configuring the upload/download speed helps.

   This is a throwback! I used to use eMule all the time about 10 years ago. Even though there is a lot of competition around nowadays, it still holds its own.
