    • JustCloud Complaint / User Submitted Image #169003

I am posting my horrible experience with JustCloud here.
A few days ago I signed up for the two year Unlimited upload plan, and once I submitted my application and provided my credit card information, I was asked if I wanted to add one additional year for the same cheap rate.
I did, and the total charge was USD 250.27 for three years of unlimited storage which is USD 83.42 pr. year, or about USD 6.95 pr. month, which I though was an ok deal.
I want online backup as I have about 700 GB of full HD private family video of the kids growing up.

Now, a summary of my experience with JustCloud so far:
After paying (as explained above), I download and install the JustCloud App on my PC.
I get messages such as: "License Expired" and "Account does not Exist".
After 10 emails back and forth with various support and sales staff at JustCloud, my user still does not exist. And this is after paying $250.
They told me to reboot the PC and they even suggested me to type in the correct password when I log in!
I have a bad feeling about this.
Even the names of the people replying to me look dodgy. Here is a list:

Jamie Heathorn, Lovely Oliver, Jeremy Cooper, Deon Patterson, Robert Blundetto

I wonder if there is only one person behind this, using different names trying to make the illusion that there is lots of staff working hard on our issues.
For your entertainment I am including below the complete email chain between me and JustCloud:

Jamie,
I am having trouble with my account.
The ref number is Re: [#629855] Your JustCloud Unlimited Subscription
I have written many times but get no reply.
The problem is that it says my Account does not exist, and that my license is expired even though I bought a 3 year unlimited account yesterday.
Your swift help is highly appreciated.
Rgds,
Rob

Do I have to type a brand new password? I am typing in the same password I used when I signed up.
Can you see if there are any errors with my account setup?
I already paid for 3 years unlimited storage yesterday.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for your email.

I request you to restart your computer and then kindly re-authenticate your app by re-entering email and new password (Which you changed earlier) in settings, then to re-boot PC.
This should fix the issue.
To authenticate, Go to desktop application >> Click on "Settings" >> Click on" Authentication". Enter your email
address , password.and confirm password Then Click on Update Password.
Now you are ready to backup your device.

If it's not work then close the app and go to C:\Program Files\JustCloud (possibly C:\Program Files (x86)\JustCloud ) and delete the folder called 'Config' Then in the same folder (C:\Program Files\JustCloud ) please open the file called 'Signup Wizard' and let me know how you get on once you have re-entered your login details that way.

Note : Please use your new changed password

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

Kind Regards,

Subject: Re: [#629855] Your JustCloud Unlimited Subscription

I tried this but no luck.
When I log in it says: "Retrieving setting from Justcloud servers", which means the app should get the most recent data from the servers. It still says: Licence Expired.
Sending you two pictures of my screen.
(Attaching screenshots)
How come my account is not found?
Is it a bug in the Justcloud system?
Please look into this. I do not know what to do anymore.

JustCloud,
Due to your services not working I am canceling my membership and I want you to refund the full amount I paid you yesterday.
I paid upfront $250.27 for three years of storage, but after reinstalling the app, rebooting the computer like you suggested, I still get: "Account does not exist" and "Licence Expired", and I have of course not been able to back up anything.
It should not be like this. These kind of services that you have are supposed to work and be solid.
Please reply to this email and verify that you are returning my funds.

Robert

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your email

I’m sorry about the problems you are experiencing.

One of the best ways for us to find the fault is to take a look through some error logs within your application to see exactly where the problem lies.

Please follow these steps:

1. Hold Ctrl + Right click on the Application icon in your system tray. (The system tray is in the bottom right of your screen, where your clock/time is located)

2. From the menu that appears click 'Generate Troubleshooting Data'

3. This will create a zip file on your desktop which contains all the information we need to troubleshoot the problem.

Please attach these files in your reply and we will pass this on to our development team for investigation.

Thanks again and we will work to get the problem solved as soon as we can.

Kind Regards,

  • @shinobi326 yes I got the same link, which did not work. So I wrote them back and they finally
    cancelled my account. I got 235 dollars back so they had balls enough to take a $15 early termination fee. I told them to stop joking so they paid me the $15 finally.
    Man, why are they acting like that? If their stuff worked I would gladly pay them for their services.
