Compressed file shows as a folder

Post by thien_an » Sat Jun 26, 2021 9:54 pm

Dear Blomp Team,

I uploaded a compressed file (.rar) sucessfully, but it shows as a folder and when clicking to this folder name, it keeps showing cjild folders inside "segment" sub-folder.

Please help check with thanks

This happens sometimes, in my observation I saw it always when I uploaded a file which was segmented like in your case and after it, it took few minutes to seconds until composite file is written on your remote, from that point on you should be able to see it as a file instead of a folder.

It could be also, that you mounted your blomp as drive/folder and then uploads only partially finished, in that case you probably should delete that folder on remote (as example you can do it on dashboard) and reupload file in question.

Thank you Debian,

I think the beta version shall be improved much in the future.

Some of my sharing files won't work, i copy the sharing links and send to my friends for test, those link won't work; nothing happens when pasting them in my friends' browsers.

Did you set the share links as open to all or only to blomp users?

If the files are chunked and the manifest hasn't been uploaded, the files will appear as directories.
