Welcome to the eFolder's new Web Seeding platform!
WebSeed is the new way to seed your backup data to your eFolder Data Center. If you do not have a WebSeed account, please create a new ticket with eFolder Tech Support.
Below you will find useful information on how to work with the platform. Once you are done with your upload, please make sure to contact our Support and provide information such as:
- Webseed Portal Username
- ID for that account where the data needs to go
- Brand of your company
- Account Number for where the data needs to go to
- Username for that account
The home screen is composed of the Upload Area (a and b) and the File Listing (c).
To create a directory for your uploads, first enter the directory name into the input field (1), then hit the "Create Directory" button (2). The confirmation message should appear (3) and the directory should be listed in the File Listing area.
The current directory where your files are going to be uploaded to is shown on the page (2). When you hit a "Select" link (1), this directory change and any subsequent files are going to be uploaded to that newly selected directory.
To upload a file, you can either click on the "Upload a file" (a) button and select the file(s) you want to upload. Another way is to directly drag and drop the file(s) you want to upload into the upload zone (b).
NOTE: You can directoy drag and drop folders, keeping in mind this feature is only supported when using Chrome 21+ and Opera 15+ versions.
After the upload of a file is complete, it should appear quickly within the File Listing area below. NOTE: Large files may need extra processing before they appear, see the "Chunk Combination" section of this documentation.
Chunk Combination is the process of combining the different pieces of a large file that you just uploaded. When uploading a large file, it is splitted in multiple chunk and those may be uploaded in parallel. It also allow you to pause/resume the upload.
When a large file upload is done (1), an entry may appear under the "Last Combined Files" (2) section of the screen so you can track the background job which is processing your upload. When the background job is completed, the file will then appear in the File Listing (3).
To delete a file or directory, simply hit the "Remove" (1) link besides the entry you want to delete and confirm (2). NOTE: Large files or directory removal may take some time to process.
NOTE: The uploads are auto expiring after a fixed delay which defaults to 30 days. If you think you need a longer file upload retention, please contact your support representative.
