After I "upgradet" from 7 to 10 I am not able to upload photo's anymore in my Zenfolio-album.

 

After drawing the photos (as usual) it marks "uploading" but nothing happens further, even no notice; the whole lot is stuck.

 

I am now in discussion with Zenfolio for a couple of days but they cannot help me further I'm afraid.

 

Is it easy to go back to 7, because it all happend after my "upgrade" and my other computer (7) is downloading normal in Zenfolio.

 

I'm afraid that when I'm starting trying to go back to 7 I'll stick in a lot of problems!

Hi,

On the computer you were attempting the Win7-->Win10 upgrade on, did it originally come with Win7 pre-loaded from the computer maker?  Or did it have Vista or XP and you upgraded to Win7 somewhere along the line?

 

It would be helpful to know the Make/Model of this computer and the approximate build year.

 

Cheers!

Thanks BIGBEARJEDI!

 

The computer has been built completely, i.o.w. it hasn't been bought from any computer-maker.

 

The Windows program (7) I bought legitimit complete with the uploadings-code about two years ago. So from clean I uploaded 7!

 

Never ever had problems. Funny is, that my old desktop, also Windows 7, isn't showing any problem with Zenfolio and Zenfolio just informed me that they were able to upload a photo in my site without problems. Conclusion...................

Thank you Condobloke, but I'm not able to handle what you was sending me! I am fairly considering to TRY to get my computer there where it was again: Windows 7, but I'm afraid that is sending me in deep troubles!

You're welcome!  Well, it sounds like it's a legit upgrade on modern hardware (2009 and later), so who knows??  I agree it's odd it worked on your other computer.  It's possible that you might have a failing hard drive, even though the rest of the Win10 upgrade completed and worked.  I might suggest you download the free SEATOOLS drive diagnostic from seagate.com and test your hard drive.  Ensure that you run BOTH short and long tests.  Long test may take 18-24 hrs. if 1TB or larger; be aware.  If SEATOOLS reports any errors, replace the drive and repeat the Win10 upgrade and see if your problem abates.

 

Best of luck, :clapping:

Thanks BIGBEARJEDI!

 

Also the funny thing is that all other sites like Twitter for example are working normal. The weak point from 10 is that's very slow starting. I'll do what you suggested.

You're welcome!  Glad to help.  Interesting.  I've found the Win10 Tech preview versions to be just the opposite; blazing fast.  On my 8 year old test PC (Dell Dimension E520), it went from like 4 minutes boot time (power on to Internet browser home page), to under 2 minutes!!  This was consistant from test builds of Win10 from Sep.2014 to Apr. 2015.  So, I guess it's relative.  If you have a bunch of junkware or malware (viruses) floating around on your Win7 prior to the upgrade, that might be affecting the boot time.  Have you actually timed it:  in minutes & seconds??  Modern computers built 2009 better darn well have a boot time less than 5 min. or they need servicing!!  Some people feel that 3 min. or 4 min. is hideously slow on Win7 or Win8 and that is dramatically improved by upgrading to 10.  It's all relative.  Many folks on the forums I visit seem to feel that 3 min. is really slow if they have a newer computer (say Win8/8.1) that's much faster. 

 

I might suggest you download malwarebytes free from malwarebytes.com and scan for spyware viruses, and download free JRT (Junkware Removal Tool) to get rid of your junkware.  Retest your boot time with a stopwatch and see if you can improve it.  Most of the computers I get from Customers with Win7 or Win8/8.1 I'm able to get under 3 min.  2 min. is a good goal, but that varies a whole lot from computer to computer.  For example, last week, I was able to get a Win8.1 ASUS laptop to get under 1 min. boot time.  Very zippy.  The Win10 TP's are from just under 1 min. to about 2 min. tops. 

 

Best of luck and look forward to hearing back from you.

provisional answer: Zenfolio sent me an mail to try to upload not through "drag and drop" but to choose the photo(s) manually and that works!

 

Their answer: "We have found that this uploader is better able to handle some internet connection issues during uploading." Well, it's NOT possible to deep further concerning "our" Internet (in Thailand).

 

It means that Windows 10 is (can) delai the (already) very bad Internet in Thailand.

 

This is in the town-center.
