CloudFTP and S3 - large file upload problem
Thanks, changing the timeout fixed the issue
CloudFTP and S3 - large file upload problem

I tried with a 700mb file and when it finished uploading, the log shows 

[12:44:04] 501 Required byte offset parameter bad or missing.

Then the upload begins again.

Any ideas?

CloudFTP and S3 - large file upload problem

SmartFTP attempts to re-upload the file from the beginning - as it takes quite some time to upload 5GB I haven't caught it in the act, but I assume it's getting to the end, is unable to verify the file, and restarts. I have checked on it and found for example that while I last saw it at 60%, several hours later it was at 20%. I've stopped it now so the file that resides on S3 is not complete. This is not normal behaviour - in my use of SmartFTP it's common for FTP connections to time out but the transfer continues in the background successfully.

I will try breaking the files into smaller pieces and see how that works.  

CloudFTP and S3 - large file upload problem
I'm trying to upload a large file to Amazon S3 using CloudFTP.

My understanding is that S3 allows files up to 5GB, so I created a multi-part archive with each part 4.3GB. The file uploads and then fails right at the end.

Smart FTP login file:
[22:36:18] MLST archivedmail.part1.rar
[22:36:19] 550 No such file or directory
[22:36:19] PASV
[22:36:19] 227 Entering Passive Mode (209,188,12,218,78,118).

[22:36:19] STOR archivedmail.part1.rar
[22:36:19] 150 File status okay; about to open data connection.

[06:02:40] Client closed the connection.

This has happened three times now on the same file. Does CloudFTP have a smaller maximum file size? I've uploaded approximately 2500 files between 15MB and 100MB each already without problem.
Curious about gmail account behaviour - attachments

I've set up my account with a number of providers, including my two Gmail accounts. I'm not intending to use them a storage locations, but I'm curious about the differences in behaviour I see with the two accounts.

My main gmail account has an additional paid-for 20GB (currently using 27% of 27.5 GB). My secondary gmail account gets only light use (currently using 16 MB of 7629 MB). 

The secondary account is showing ~3MB in use in SMEStorage, and it looks like the files are attachments from emails that have been sent to that account.

The main account is showing 0 MB in use and no files, despite the fact that there would be hundreds if not thousands of email attachments stored in that account.

Any ideas why they are different? Seeing the attachments in the secondary account made me think it would be cool to be able to sort through and download the attachments that have been sent to the main account (and possibly delete the ones that are taking up space unnecessarily).


CloudFTP - can't find any information on how to access
Wow - that's easy. Thanks for the speedy reply!
CloudFTP - can't find any information on how to access

I signed up for the CloudFTP add-on. The link to "more information" goes to a wiki page that only says "Content being revised!" and I can't find any information on how this works anywhere else on the site, these forums included.

Can anyone tell me how to access my cloud services via FTP?
