Sia cofounder David Vorick tells Ars that most Sia users currently use a redundancy factor of three—meaning that three bits are stored for each bit of the underlying data. But Vorick argues that customers will eventually be able to do much better, achieving very high reliability with a redundancy factor as low as 1.5. For example, a particular file might be split into 60 pieces and stored with 60 different hosts. The customer would be able to recover the file so long as at least 40 of those 60 hosts remain online.
Oh ok I didn't realise you meant the AppData folder, I haven't got that I'm afraid; bugger!
I guess I'll just have to cut my losses with Sia and go all in with Storj, once I reinstalled Storj it automatically found the correct folders and carried on like nothing had happened, it's a shame Sia isn't that forward thinking!
Same thing happened to me today as well. I am mining as well as hosting 5tb with 1000 collateral. I have 14 contracts with 0 files uploaded and my computer has never been shut off since I started hosting. I put a small price for 13 week contracts to build my score. there are 3 withdrawals of 1000 as well as some other random smaller ones with one for 733 and those all add up to more than my balance before??? sounds like a glitch? I read about reinstalling the wallet and the balance should work out. I haven't received a payment for any mining yet as I just started for shits and giggles on my main GPU since I have the computer on hosting anyway. Also if I reinstall the wallet how will that affect my hosting and will I lose my collateral?? And there is still 2900 sc missing..
Alright, then something must have gone wrong at exchange A. If the transaction is still not there after 20 days then it was never submitted to the network. Please contact the support team of the exchange about this issue.
I had an idea regarding the issue of not being able to make the folder smaller, could anyone confirm that "accepting contracts" or actively sending/receiving data could be the cause? I'm desperate for help at this point with shrinking the size of the folder to accommodate a timely transfer, hopefully without the need for third party/work-around programs/tactics, the UI contains a function to do this i just cant figure out why it is having problems "migrating all sectors".
@DakotaPrairie I really doubt they'll do anything about these problems just yet. But for now I have released just today a web based wallet. EasySia.com. It is also unofficial but the copy and paste works just fine haha. Good luck.
i have a w/d that has been pending since July 20 on polo. 3 tickets opened. I heard its bc of SIA. Its beautiful watching the value of SIA collapse while my coins are frozen bc of broken tech. thanks guys
As I understand you have either not initialized the wallet at all or you did not write down the seed. Thus you have no coins in the wallet.
The seed is the password if you did not explicitly set a custom one.
Anyway, assumed you don't have any SC in your wallet, you can just type wallet init --force to create a fresh new wallet.
Just don't forget to copy and paste the generated seed into your safe/encrypted storage.
