- BlitzLv 51 decade agoFavorite Answer
Usually, no. LimeWire is specifically for the sharing of files already on the computers of those with LimeWire... and only the files in the folders that each user specifies to "share", meaning, make available, for other LimeWire users to find in the search results.
So unless the specific file you want is on the computer of someone else that uses LimeWire, and in one of the folders the user designates for its contents to show up in the search results... you won't be able to download that file.
There are more ways to get it, though, if you try hard enough. But we on Yahoo! Answers could be of more use if you could describe the file you want and where it is.
