    There are some company in China offer cloud drive services just like google drive, some of the biggest ones are Baidu/115.

    Since it's China, privacy doesn't exist, every file you uploaded into the cloud can be accessed&moded as the company wishes. Some business genius come up with the idea of "offline download", which allow you to download torrent directly from their cloud storage (content uploaded by other users into their paid cloud storage, but it's the company's property now, lol).
    Sounds nice huh? boom, limited download speed unless you pay a subscription.
    Using this business model & China's huge population, these companies have achieved almost all the scene releases. You can download any torrent you can find from their cloud storage, even if the torrent is long dead, they're still stored somewhere in their datacenter.

    It works much like an usenet, except they don't rely on extra .nzb files, their userbase&profit are large enough to ignore retention problem, ignore DMCA takedown, and they offer unlimited bandwidth. You do need to find alter torrent if it's an internal release from a private trackers though.

    If you are not concerned about quality (as most scene&open tracker doesn't care about quality), not into Bluray (Bluray torrents are much hard to find in public), they are perfect if you just want content availability.

    Although it sounds tempting, the language barrier is the hardest part, Chinese translation to English is still not accurate right now, so you probably need a friend to help you set up accounts as non-chinese user is not in their business concern.

    Thought this info might help some soul looking for more options.

    Thanks for the heads up, @tsarOW. Even if it sounds scary, it might be a good thing in the narrowest aspect. Is there any usage of 115 Online Storage service like Google Drive or Mega? Are people sharing the files via links? How can we access the contents?

    It's basically a just normal Online Storage service like google etc, so you can upload something & share the link to someone else.
    In addition to that, "offline download" essentially allows you to access the entire content of their cloud storage, all you need is the correct file hash. It goes like this.
    1. you upload some torrent you grabbed from rarbg etc.

    2. they check the file hash, turns out someone already uploaded it to 115, there is no need for you to upload the same content again.
    3. They simply make a directory file copy in your drive and link all files to the exact content located somewhere in the cloud, and now you have a copy of the same torrent content in your personal drive. The whole checking & migration process only take couple of seconds.
    4. Now you can download it from your 115 drive space just like downloading something in your google drive.

    almost every torrent you can find in public (rarbg,rutracker, some random torrent in personal blog) has a copy in their cloud, so you can still grab its content even the torrent is no longer seeded for years.

    It allows you to access public content with ease. As for more valuable stuff like Bluray disks, those torrents are probably only shared in a private forum not in public, but if you can get the file hash somehow you can still download it.

    This is very good information, thank you. Come to think of it, Owyn told me about Baidu and sent me an invite code as early as 2013, but as you said the language barrier creates significant difficulty, and my account ended up disabled due to not associating a Chinese phone number.
