Well, I got an extra 5gig via a referral so that works, but I see no way of grabbing that 5gig bonus they claimed you get just for installing the desktop app, unless it takes a different version to do that or the offer's expired. If not, I'd love to know the trick! Hints anyone?

Thanks!

You have to register through a referral link to get the extra space... Did you do that or did you do a normal registration?

What mikeb said; Possible for:

An owner`s private dirs.?
An owner read-write and public read-only dirs.?
And public read-write dirs.?

I didn`t see this kind of versatility in DropBox.

Thank you koulaxizis. Very Happy

I made a symlink to /mnt/home/Copy into /root so that I'm able to use my hard disk instead of my save file.

You're welcome! Smile

Copy is a nice cloud service, it deserves a place in our Puppies! Wink

it works very well--great find. (more generous but more resource hungry than dropbox).

vicmz (and others), fwiw, if you right click the icon in the task bar and select preferences, you get an option to place the folder wherever you want.

That option doesn't work to me -- error dialog: file exists (What file? The folder is empty Shocked ). The symlink at /root to /mnt/home/Copy was the only way to get it to use my HD space. And it must be a relative link, otherwise I get the same dialog. If anyone uses ROX-Filer, do you guys get the same message when you try the folder switcher?

Unload the app, delete the /root./copy folder, reload the app and set it up as you wish! That worked for me when i got the same message... Smile

vicmz, i set the location of the folder during installation, so i can't confirm whether that button works to change it on my set ups either. well, i can vouch it worked on one laptop with 5.7.1.

koulaxizis, is there any advantage to upgrading from 1.35 to 1.37? any preferred method for upgrading?

I suppose that the best method is to unload the old sfs and load the new one. However, i haven't noticed any important differences, if your current client works good, don't change it! Wink

too late (on one.) i'm sure it's just a matter of uninstalling and reinstalling, but pet over pet usually works pretty well--didn't in this case. it's a full install and i used the sfs load program afterward, but still only got the icon opening the folder (which was better than the error message about sql something not working or not being found or...).

so i'll uninstall all traces of it and reinstall the newer one to see if it works as well for me as the older one. only complaint i had with it was its resource usage compared to dropbox and spideroak as it didn't seem like it was doing anything much different or differently than those two programs. the machine it's messed up on now only has a gig of ram so it'd be worth it to check if that's the improvement they made. can always go back to the earlier version. maybe refer myself to myself and pick up another five gig of storage...
