Setting up / Working with Facebook
oh.  for some reason i got the impression you could publish files to the standard facebook photo app from your SME repository via the plugin.  didn't realize facebook users would need to install the plugin as well.



Automating a Websever backup
your cpanel account would have to initiate the backup and handle scheduling.  as you have no control over what you can/cant install within cpanel, it would need to already have a backup via ftp with scheduler built in.

Ok, it was unclear if the resume was related to block level with large files or resume on batch.  I'd love to try it, thank you.
too many files to retrieve
I post here so everyone with similar problems have the ability to read what the solution is. 

In my case I have no large files, just lots and lots of small 2-4 meg files.  If there's a connection issue, I just expect the sync to be able to reestablish a connection and continue along, and restart the one file it was on from the beginning if necessary.  I started the sync of my 200gig worth of files several days ago now figuring it would run 24/7 for a few days until it's done, but I have to keep manually restarting it.  This will never finish like this, nor do I feel confident that once it has that all my files are safely backed up to S3.  I'll read up on the URL you provided me now.

Hopefully you wont get an error this time around with my images.  the program i use to do screen caps uses an image hosting provider that limits # of hits per day.  in any case, i am TRYING really really hard to get SME working for my purposes but i'm running into one hurdle after another.  I'm trying to sync approx 200 gig worth of files (approx 10,000 files in total I believe) and am being hit with errors when synching such as disconnect messages, or the sync not completing.  I just went to Explorer to see how far the sync actually got before it aborted and am now getting an error from explorer telling me I have too many files.  If I ignore the error, I'm shown nothing.  With Sync, if i do a refresh, the application locks up and becomes unresponsive for a good 10 minutes.  I have a 25mbit internet connection and a quad processor system running windows 7.  Plenty of horsepower and bandwidth, my feeling is just that these applications aren't optimized to handle a large number of files and also can't properly deal with any sort of errors that might occur such as auto retrying if something happens.  I need an application that will just AUTOMATICALLY sync my PC data to S3 without having to worry about whether or not it was completed.  I don't get the warm and fuzzy feeling from SME that my data is 100% backed up and protected.  I think the applications and tools are a great start, and I believe you have a new version of some of the windows tools coming this month and I'll hang in there and give it another shot if those arrive in a timely fashion, but I'm pretty close to returning to my original plan of using JungleDisk. 


Stuff I can't figure out
This is what I get when I change my default sync folder.  Really I just want to add a schedule to backup this directory daily, so I'm not sure if I wanted to do that.



I have about 200GB in this folder.  Is there a way to limit bandwidth?  Or pause/resume?
Stuff I can't figure out
thank you, that solved my immediate problems.  is there documentation on the backup functionality?
is there deduplication? 

I dragged a photo to my newly mapped drive and see it there and the good news is it's a photo and shows as a thumbnail which will be a great help in backing up photos and being able to browse the cloud to find specifics photos.  the bad news is that it doesn't show up in SME explorer even after a refresh. 

shouldnt sme explorer and my shared drive be in sync? i uploaded a file via sme explorer and that shows in the amazon s3 bucket, but does not show on my mapped drive.



Stuff I can't figure out
I'm having a very difficult time figuring out how to do a number of things.  Right from the start, there were SO MANY subscription options, that I don't even know if I picked the correct one, and perhaps that choice has limited what I can find/see. 

I already had an Amazon S3 account that I had purchased for use with JungleDisk, but I have not yet uploaded anything.  The goal here is photo backup and management and I was just about to get JungleDisk going tonight when I ran across a recommendation for SME for photos, especially because of the iPhone and facebook plugins.  So I purchased $25 have my own Amazon account license.  I don't know if there are more licenses I need to buy to do the following:

map my Amazon bucket to a drive letter on my Windows PC
how I set up an automated daily backup
why the windows client shows that all the cloud names for "my documents, my music, my backups, contacts, groups" etc is all SMEStorage cloud when I've changed my default cloud to Amazon and synched.  "My s3 files" does show with a cloud name of Amazon S3.


That's it for starters.  I'm extremely technical, it just seems that things are made to be overly complicated and difficult to figure out.  Even the wiki when I checked for help with the Windows client says the info isn't available because it's being updated and will be available on 12/11.  It's 12/21 and it's still not there.

Thanks
