  • Ability to “restore” files and folders from versions

    I beöieve Bitcasa is fantastic. But I still have horrendous (u spell it llike that?) batteryconsumption on my S3. So terrible I just cant have Bitcasa-app installed at all…
    I will try this new uppdated version and hoping for the better!

      Hey Marcus – we fixed a number of battery consumption issues in the latest release 1.1.0 – let us know if this fixed your issue. If not, please submit a support ticket so we can help diagnose and fix! Sorry for the inconvenience.

    You guys need to hire a good UI/UX designer. Look at the brilliant job Dropbox did.

    (Minor blog issue) Trying to reply here using Twitter or Facebook account ends with certificate mismatch. “You attempted to reach blog.bitcasa.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.wordpress.com.”

  4. greedo says:

    Yes. Now Bitcasa is alot better. I love it. i have tested some clouds like dropbox, wuala, drive, skydrive… but i will stay here. Send any folder on my PC to the cloud is the ultimative killer-feature (…like wuala)

    Buzzkillington here: it’s worse than it was before. Would it be possible to revert?

    • Dheeraj says:

      Just go to portal.bitcasa.com

      • Adam says:

        No luck. It redirects to the new my.bitcasa.com.

        Was there a beta invite for this new UI that I missed? It seems like it’s kind buggy as well. Also, is there a place that I can leave suggestions? I love Bitcasa and I would like to help improve the interface.

    I see functional improvements, but seems like you guys have no taste in the design.

    Hi,
    first i got to say that the offer is truely appealing and leads web services in the right way : offer better products.
    Then i got to be honest and must be tell you that global first impression is not so good : i detail below :
    - main site “pricing” page sometimes leads to a 404
    - linux legacy client : well done to think about not mainstream OS and to allow an non-finished client
    - (following previous) good job to provide installation commands
    - (again..) repository has IP restrictions preventing from downloading client (forbidden IP from Ubuntu Quantal apt-get) : no client download :(
    - i found an alternative portal on this blog: cool, i suggest that “beta” must be put somewhere visible to prevent deceptive comments about the design and overall quality judgements (design is personnaly the last i care about and that should not be directed by users imho, unless we want to end with a “so original” blueish theme) and make it public : previous interface seems outdated a bit (all (fonts,buttons seems like oversized .. to me at least)

    I can’t test a client atm (linux) so i’ve been trying web ui
    - i’ve guessed to drag and drop a file to upload and it seems to work (still uploading..) however it was a guess : no clear indications on how to upload : i’m a geeky end-user, it should be made obvious.
    - the “upload” button/infobox : open another tab to “Photos” section while uploading to “Videos” : no more uploads informations :/
    - personal recommandation: “Uploads” infos should be make more dynamic and always visible (optionnaly allowing “hidden state”) to prevent the “my DVD backup never got to my account!” sort-of complaints. You know the beliefs that some people have that transfers are instantaneous ;)
    - in “Photos” : open an album “Sample- Puppy”: no more “hide_grid_list_toggle” ? :/
    How can i delete just *one* pic if i wanted ?
    - don’t assume a click on a movie is for playing it: i may just want to downlad, or just see details (file infos) while in preview mode.
    - Sections: should not be “set in stone” : just put some default with editable name.Yes, i understands it complicates versions tracking…

    That’s all for my today review ;) and i repeat that this offers, while still in its early phase, is one of the most interesting related to online storage that i’ve seen due to pricing, storage capability and OS/clients support.
    However, it may not come as a surprise to say that is not looking finished nor robust.
    Last but not least :
    Provide a bug/suggestions place/forum to improve feedback.
    At the very least add a “report a bug button” right on the UI.

    Keep up the good work ! :)

    P.S.that’s a very long comment/reply, sorry for that :)

    Hi, when do you plan to release a stable version? I am trying to use bitcasa for a while but the bugs crashing my computer are endless…
    as an example:

    1) When transfering a high number of files bitcasa often gets stuck in a file, send a message that this file can not be copied into bitcasa infinite drive and then there is no way out… tryed to cancel the copy, close the dialog box but nothing works…
    2) Many times after initializing bitcasa the windows explore will not work properly, getting frozen
    3) Many times bitcasa will not exit… just stays there saying exiting forever…
    Thanks

    Joao

    All my video thumbnails is gray squares now in new web version. In the old ver. they were correct. It’s .mts files from sony camcorder. Please fix it.
    PS I am on infitnit plan. Good luck and congratulations with beta end!

  10. Esteban Proano says:

    what doe the “reset” button do thats listed under the previous versions dropdown menu??

  11. At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  12. iamnut says:

    With all these negative comments, I just wanted to say great job. I happen to like the way the interface looks and everything seems to work just fine for me.

  13. Hi, i feel that i noticed you visited my web site thus i got here to return the choose?
    .I’m attempting to in finding issues to improve my web site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your concepts!!

  14. always i used to read smaller posts which as well clear
    their motive, and that is also happening with this post which I am reading now.

  15. Luk says:

    Maybe stupid question, but I cant find the way, how to create the new folder in bitcasa on the web. Thank you.

  16. Great post. I’m going through many of these issues as well..

  17. It’s OK, it looks good, but when will you implement the FOLDERS CREATION?
    Thank you and good luck!
    Alex

  18. kylemeko says:

    I am waiting for folder creation as well. But even more so for the ability to change file names. I have a problem were if I download a file with Bitcasa Anywhere and that file has certain characters in the name it will not let me move the file to another folder. Which has caused my download file to get rather clustered.

  19. guest says:

    You can create the new folder on your Bitcasa drive on the computer as a workaround. I eventually figured out how to share a file by clicking on Send icon, then copy the link. It would be great to have share button for non technical users

  20. guest says:

    I am seeing a NEW FOLDER option when logging in on my web account after posting the comment.

  21. Sebastiene says:

    I am to and bitcasa is improving every day when will you be able to move files to go into the folders without a, reuploading and b, so its visible on all pcs that have bitcasa installed and most important question is do you have plans to give us some indication of length of service that you can deliver us as I don;t want to move everything here for you to close down touch wood you won’t.

  22. Sergio says:

    Folks, there is an “incomplete file” in my bitcasa folder I want to delete. Once I cannot delete it using the windows app, I am trying to delete using the web interface. However, the “trash icon” is not there, so i cannot delete the file. I tried chrome and IE and the result is the same. is it a bug?

  23. Melba says:

    This article is in fact a nice one it helps new net users, who
    are wishing for blogging.

  24. I have ben browsing onlinne more than 4 hours today, yet I never found anny interesting article luke yours.
    It is preetty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  25. Karen says:

    Please hurry and implement more functionality for the website end. I need to be able to move files and folders around at the site. For backup purposes I will put up a lot of file from different older computers and old drives and would like to then organize them online-not have to have the space to get them all on one large PC first. I tried getting them all on a PC first and that PC died! So now I am here.

    Most other cloud services let you move folders and put folders into other folders and move files from folder to folder etc.

    It’s looking good, but please implement these changes, I want to go pay–testing the free now, but really need the extra function

    best,
    Karen

  28. It is important to consider the amount of food
    along with the standard and quality off food. A man who plans to save weight , he or she should
    drink up to 7-9 cups of water every day. So all the men and women if they find such signs in them they must get consulted wwith a health expert and get
    solved with tis ailment at an increased level.

  29. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that,
    this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  30. This will lessen certain expenses such as air fares and hotel bills.
    Majority of quick rich promises on the world wide web today are
    often myths. Nike spends $678 million on advertising recently, just a portion of
    the almost $2 billion invest in total marketing.
