Wuala - Data stored only on a single host?

So we could start this as a new thread...

Does anyone know if I should be worried that my logs state that my data is stored only on a single host?
I thought, or rather assumed, that any of the data I'm uploading is stored on multiple host to ensure it's always available. Am I wrong here?

Where (in the logs) should I look for this? I'll let you know what mine says?

Did you post in teh Wuala forums? There are some pretty responsive guys over there. (and since most are in EU, you could even have an answer by the morning!!!)

My other thought is how the math adds (or rather doesn't add) up. If you get to upload 10 times what you store on your machine than that only balances out if the average donor only uses 10% of their storage allotment. Right?

Jim, I have not been able to tell where my data is stored or the actual progress of a back up folder.

I THINK... The 10x math only applies until your locally stored data = 10% of your limit. ie. if your limit is 80GB, once you have at least 8 GB of other people's stuff on your machine, (and assuming 100% uptime) you get your 80. Between 8 and 80 coming down to yours, you still only get 80 x your uptime in the cloud.

Hi there,

as a member of the Wuala Support Team, I would like to join in and answer to ntruka01. IndyLux question is already answered prefectly. ;)

When you upload a file to Wuala, all fragments of the file will be stored on the Wuala Servers in a first run. After complete, the file is online and downloadable. Your client will start to maintain the file. In this procedure, the file is spread out into the Wuala Cloud, what increases safety, speed and availability. The maintain procedure will also run on our servers and from client of other users with access to that file when they download it.
