Elephantdrive java applet upload error

Just checking top online backup solution providers past fewdays, today I am doing test with elephantdrive.net online backup system.  They are providing Windows and Mac backup clients as well as Java based explorer interface so that from any OS you can upload/download files.

Done. Test account created with 1GB free space. Tried to upload some files using explorer interface using firefox. Java applet keep on loading…loading… 10 mins…. 15mins no use!!!

Ok, Changed browser to IE8, no use.  Tried all following combinations without any luck.

OS: Windows xp – 32bit – sp2,Linux ( Redhat,Ubuntu)

Browsers: IE8,6 and firefox 3.5 with Java 1.6 (SUN/Oracle)

Net speed : 1mb up/down

Just sent mail to support detailing all above data. Lets see. Some of online backup reviewers saying elephant drive sucks in support wise. Lets see its correct or not. I will update this post once I got reply from  elephantdrive.

It download around 7-8 mb applet and fails with no update

One response to “Elephantdrive java applet upload error

  1. Unhappy Elephant Drive Customer

    I have been getting the same error while trying to retreive files for months now.

    Elephant Drive has been ignoring me for months, even on twitter. I sent them a tweet, got no response yet they kept tweeting!

    They happily bill my credit card though.
