Error Code 124
Error 124 when trying to upgrade account.
The reason why an error code 124 will come up when trying to upgrade your Hightail account is because the current account that you have will not allow you to do so.
You will have to cancel your current Hightail account and then upgrade to the desired account.
If you have just been charged for your account, then you will have to contact us in order to get a prorated charge for the upgraded account.

Error Codes 1001-1004
Upload issues are usually caused by a problem on the network and just a small glitch in your connection can cause the upload to stall. Error codes 1001-1004 are codes that you will get when there is a network issue.
- The failure could be a issue with your network speed. If you are still having issues, please run a quick speed test to confirm your internet connection? Just click on this link and a speed test to San Jose will begin automatically.
You will normally want at least a 1.0Mbps upload connection to ensure a smooth file transfer.
- One last thing that can cause issues is if you are on a wireless connection. Wireless connections are known to have small connection glitches which can cause a file stall and we suggest switching over to a wired connection.
