  • Backup vault databases exceeding 4 GB in size on 32-bit Linux platforms no longer fail to upload

  • Reduced memory usage when executing a backup vault cleanup.
  • Corrected an issue that could cause missed backups to not execute, even when the "run missed backups as soon as possible" option was set

I wonder why people just do not use MobileMe (used to be mac.com). It already has all these tools and does a whole bunch more stuff. You can create web pages and get to your whole computer contents from anywhere. Email is also in there. So what is the deal with S3? Is this service free? Even if it is MobileMe is only $100 a year and you get more.

I'm updating my previous comment. .For the last few yearss, JD has operated flawlessly. I recently had two questions for Tech Support-neither was about a JD bug, and I got nearly immediate responses. I'm still omitting a star for the frustrating restore window, but, in fact, I find it faster to use in practice than that in Arq, 4 another excellent backup client, which I also recommend.

I use the USB desktop version which has no background processes and backup my most critical files every 15 minutes. This has saved me many times.JD service is fine and I've never had an insoluble problem, and tech support has been helpful. But the web and in-app Restore Windows are primitive, compared to, say, Mozy. The in-app restore window closes after a download. Meaning, that to download another file you must navigate than entire JD file system again. I complained over a year ago.

I eventually closed my Jungledisk account as I found that using Arq for backups and Transmit 4 for storage was an even better way of utilising S3. Also, the fact that you can't access data uploaded through Jungledisk from any other app than Jungledisk somehow felt a bit restrictive considering the virtually unlimited space available on the S3 servers. Now I can access my data, which is easily encrypted, from anywhere. This is not to slate this software - whilst it didn't suit my particular needs, its still great product and miles better than iDisk. However, one thing to watch out for which could potentially cause immense grief (and the main reason for me posting this review) is the Jungledisk cancellation procedure. Be very very careful, if cancelling Jungledisk, not to cancel your entire S3 account as the procedure makes it very easy to do this.

I've used this over a year with only problem, quickly solved by the Support staff. (Lesson: Clear caches, or the apparent contents of the Network Disk might not match what is actually in the Cloud.) I have one gripe. The Restore Files window closes after each download, making it necessary to re-open the window and re-navigate the file system if you want to download some more.

I hate to say this because I had high hopes for JungleDisk, but it did not fit my needs. Disclosure: I was using ChronoSync for the actual syncing as I found the native JungleDisk app just too awkward, so this is more a review of the service. I found the service a little unreliable, and it had too many disconnects during the syncing. This meant I had to babysit the process, and it ended up being not worth the effort. I now just use Dreamhost's backup service with ChronoSync since I use them for my web host and have a lot less problems.

C'mon, it IS a good product for the storage/backup/ uploading and downloading of data/ disk usage, its hard not to recommend this to the average user. We're not talking iDisk here or some other sub standard product.

Do not install Jungle Disk on your computer. It leaves a lot of junk behind that it impossible to remove. The little icons on your folders are impossible to remove. I've made several attempts to get this issue resolved with tech support but no one has been able to resolve the problem. This is junk. I can't believe Jungle Disk has this poor of customer service and technical support. I repeat. Save yourself a lot of headaches and do not install their junk software.

Just wanted to provide a little feedback for JungleDisk. I just started using it, so I am not going to rate it yet. After I installed the program, I ran into a problem, so I sent them a support ticket. They replied within 24 hours and helped me out. So far, so good! I am backing up 5GB to test it out as I write this. I will rate this once I have spent enough time with it. Talk to you then! [Cerebrl]

Update. After several days of hearing nothing from Jungle Disk, I was contacted by one of their techs who explained that they have been busy and that is why I hadn't heard from them. In any event, we have resumed our emails trying to get the sync folders option to work. I don't know why we can't seem to get it all on one try, but I will give them credit for continuing to work with me, albeit sometimes after a little lag. I will report back once I either get it to work the way I want it, or just give up.

Be wary of this software. I have used Jungle Disk to back up my office computer and my home computer for more than one year, and it works fine. Recently, however, I decided to use their Sync Folders option to synchronize files between the two computers. For about a month I have been going back and forth with Jungle Disk people with no success. At first they replied to my emails for advice (they have no telephone support), but when I cut and pasted comments from different emails into one that expressed frustration that the information I had received was inconsistent and contradictory, they simply stopped responding to me. I am not a naive computer user. I have a Ph.D. in Biophysics and I run a research lab in which we have about a dozen computers. It would be very nice to be able to access data files generated on any computer from my office or from another lab computer, which is why I decided to try this product. Needless to say, I do not recommend it, and I am very disappointed in the poor product support.

Ugh. Sorry about your problems and sorry that I just read this. I am also a biophysicist who was hoping to use this to synchronize data across computers. I just started the process, so we'll see how it goes....
