Hello,

BB needs an out of backup space Backup Status message, on the Home page, such as "No more backup space on your Buddies PC(s). Contact your Buddies to increase their Backup/Shared space" (maybe these should be in red).


Currently if a Buddies PC is out of space and I attempt to backup another file the Backup Status is displayed as either:

Waiting for * file(s) to be ready before backing up.

OR

Can’t backup locked file(s) (this continues to be displayed after the file has been closed).

The 'Files in need of backup' queue then continues to grow and it took me a while to figure out that the actual problem was that my Buddy was out of space.

The GUI could also be improved in the following ways:

1. Make the amount of free space reported in the Buddies right hand column dynamic and display in red if there is not enough free backup space.

2. Remove the Hide option so that the ‘Shared space used’ is always visible’. This is the only indication on the PC that the data is being transferred to that there is a problem, so should not be hidden. This is of particular importance to those who wish to use BB as a backup solution for their customers like myself.

I have a number of suggestions more relevant for Businesses wishing to use BB, but I will put them in a separate Topic (hopefully some of these can be included in the current version as they would be relevant to home users to).

Regards
Paul

Hi Paul,

These were some great suggestions and we've just added a few of them to the latest patch available now.

* The main screen now shows a warning when backup can't proceed because a Buddy has no space.
* The "shared space" bar is now always visible so you can quickly see when you have run out of backup space to your buddies

Regards,

John
