    Hi everyone,

    From the beginning, the promotion we agreed on with HP was 50GB of free cloud storage, along with a 100MB file size limit for uploads. Due to a misconfiguration on our end, some lucky users received a 1GB limit, and we’ll of course continue to honor that for those accounts. We’re sorry about any confusion that discrepancy has caused.

    Hopefully this answers any questions you might have about the app. Again, sincere apologies for any confusion or inconvenience. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact me directly at mark@box.net.

    Best,

    Mark

    Thanks for the clarification. I was never a complainer of the upload limit. It's a still a generous amount for all TP users.

    Thanks for taking the time to read and post in this thread.

    Now, I want someone to fix the app such that we can get some sort of preview of what we want to open without having to actually open it. Currently, the system is tap a file, then tap that you want to open it. I want to tap a file, have a preview or something show up in the pane, then I can tap and open it if I want.

    Just got my 32GB and registered Max file size: 104857600 MB

    Erm, so am I a 100MB or 1GB?
  5. #145  
    lol... you're the lucky one I guess. 104857600 MB = 100 TERABYTES!

    but if you leave the MB off your original number, then it's just 100MB.

    it does say upgrade to 2Gb though.

    thoughts:

    1. Not really cool of HP and Box to offer 50GB of free space, yet cripple it with a 100mb file size limit.

    2. #1 having been said, the intended use is clearly for photos, music and documents, for which a 100mb limit is not an issue.

    3. Small kudos to box.net for not retro-actively crippling the large number of accounts that were 'accidentally' created with the 1GB limit. By the way, the difference between the two types of accounts is that the 1GB limit account is a full premium $20 per month account for free, while the intended 100mb limit account is the free lite account with the storage bumped to 50gb and the file size limit bumped to 100mb (normally 5gb/25mb).

    4. Without a desktop sync client, I really can't find any good use for my box.net account. Getting any significant number of files on there is too difficult, and it doesn't meet my other cloud storage needs.

    I used to be happy with Zumodrive, but recently it's completely stopped syncing on every PC I have; plus there's no TouchPad client, though the phone client appears to work ok on the touchpad (hardly ideal though).

    I guess I'll have to look into dropbox.

    Use NetDrive, it works great for uploads to Box.net

    I use chrome (on linux btw) where you can just drag and drop onto the browser to your box.net account. Dropbox provides a native linux client but I find drag and drop in the browser more convenient actually because my browser is always running anyhow.

    Dropbox offers users with free accounts starting out at 2GB of free online storage space. You start out with 2GB free but there are several ways to bump that. Referring others who sign up gives you an additional 250MB per enrolee so you can use my referral link to get your 2.25GB initially--->>> http://db.tt/Gw0dLYN

    Here are six ways to bump your free available storage capacity-

    1. http://db.tt/Gw0dLYN– Do your initial sign-up with a referral from someone else (that’s mine on the left) – this will give you an extra 250 MB right off the bat.

    2. https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011 – Complete DropQuest 2011 – here are some details. This is only available for another week or so, but completing it will net you a whopping 1 GB of extra storage (you earn it incrementally as you complete the steps of the quest).

    3. https://www.dropbox.com/gs – Complete the “Getting Started” – log in to your dropbox account on the website and click on the “Getting Started” tab. Complete all of the tasks listed there to earn 250 MB.

    4. https://www.dropbox.com/free – Complete the social media linking to Twitter and Facebook to get 640 MB.

    5. https://www.dropbox.com/referrals – Refer others. For every friend that signs up for dropbox using your referral, you both get an extra 250 MB. This is the big daddy of free space boosters because you can get up to 8 GB extra space from referrals.

    6. https://www.dropbox.com/edu – Be a student. If you have an EDU email account, you get double the referral bonus (500 MB per referral, up to a max of 16 GB extra space). The edu bonus is also retroactive to any referral bonuses you’ve already earned.

    If you are uploading directly through your dropbox folder there is not limit other than the total of your account i.e. 2GB or whatever you have been able to increase your free storage to using my helpful tips above.

    If you ave uploading through the dropbox website the limit I believe is 300MB but there is no need to do it that way unless you are away from your computer where you have your account set up.

    For those having trouble uploading files to Box (like I was) I recommend Gladinet. Get the free version of the program and link it to your Box account. It will map Box as a WebDAV Network folder on your computer. Uploading is now so much easier. Also, when I was trying to upload through their website (which sucks, it was buggy and froze on me multiple times) I noticed that my speed was throttled. Uploading through Gladinet I was able to max my upload speed (25Mbps) and upload almost 40 Gigs in half a day.

    Thanks for the information! I was able to take advantage of the twitter/facebook promo, but the DropQuest is apparently closed now .

    I kept trying to log in after following the dropbox link and then I realized hey thats dropbox not box lol. I was like sweet I can get even more space in my box account. I guess I shouldn't stay up too late it makes me delirious.

    I agree completely. For a normal user, the amount of storage is awesome and the limit doesn't bother me in the least. It was a great bonus to go with what I feel like is my awesome TouchPad. Even my die hard iPad friend bought one from ebay, he liked it that much.

    box.net gives you free 2gb or 50gb but they really really really do not want you to use it. Without a desktop app and 100mb file limit who is really even going to fill up even 2gb? This is like ATT is giving me free text messaging and 10 hours plus free talk between 2 am and 3 am in the middle of the night. So yes I am glad that some people are gladful but to me their promotion lies somewhere between false and unfruitful promotions. I myself moved to Wuala for syching my desktop files and dropbox for TP files.


    I generally use Unison+SSH for synching my 4 computers. I just wanted to give the Cloud a chance.

    Btw having a paid account is not enough to get the desktop app for the BOX, you have to be an enterprise customer(as far as I can tell)

    Omission of details isn't technically lying however you are right most people probably won't use the 50GB since it isn't like a network drive they would use to perform a backup to or something. However it is a great way to store pics, docs, small video or audio files. Pics and docs is probably their main user type.

    The account i upgraded through the TouchPad app has a 1GB file limit and no bandwidth limit. The account I invited my other email to make with their "invite co-workers to have 50GB" offer has a 100MB file limit and a 10GB bandwidth (usage) limit.

    Who needs a desktop app? I just mounted my Box.net storage as a vertual drive in Windows. Was pretty simply and it worked pretty nicely.
