Though again this is not “by design” - Google state that you need X users to get unlimited so they may well enforce limits on single user accounts in the future. However if you buy a spare GSuites account from Ebay and use that as a backup for your primary you will at least have a copy of the data should Google ever do this.
Is there any geolocalization of your data depending where you register ? I had already a free suite account that I want then to upgrade to a business plan but for whatever reason when I try to do so it is forcing me to input an US address ? can I change this anywhere ?
@Aldigator just said : “An employee of Amazon Germany just told me on the phone that they are making changes to their services and infrastructure and that rclone probably needs to be updated accordingly.” (https://github.com/ncw/rclone/issues/1409) (for whatever it’s worth)
Can confirm - just talked to support aswell after an email reply
Sie nutzten für den Zugriff auf Amazon Drive ein “Rclone” von 2P. Rclone wurde jedoch ab heute deaktiviert. Daher ist kein Zugang zu Amazon Drive über Rclone mehr möglich. Es wird in Zukunft auch nicht möglich sein den Zugang über Rclone zu aktivieren.
Aus diesem Grund haben Sie auch einen 429 Fehler erhalten.
Bitte haben Sie Verständnis, dass wir aus diesem Grunde keine weiteren Informationen zu diesem Thema geben können.
I confirmed with Amazon Drive support US via phone call. Third party application requests have been discontinued and RCLONE support has been terminated with the Amazon API. There are currently no plans for Linux support in the near future. The suggested work around was “use the web interface”.
Just in the process of trying to get my data off using either Amazon’s own app (which makes a mess of syncing) or NetDrive (which is having a hell of a time getting a login from Amazon), I was already on the verge of throwing in the towel with Amazon anyway as cloud drive has been an unreliable mess, once all this is over I’ll be glad to be rid of it.
So here I am left in a state where I’ve uploaded data to Amazon’s service with a previously authorized application and can no longer access it because (presumably, perhaps the reports are wrong) they’ve disabled access. Maybe this is temporary, maybe not.
I’m one of those folks that doesn’t violate the TOS for this thing in any way. No excessive use of storage (even though “unlimited” in quotes just means limited).
I use Linux and am now without a way to usefully access my data. The webui is not very good. Thinking through options for regaining access, even if temporarily…
Hypothetically, one could extract the OAUTH keys from an other authorized application and embed them in their own copy of rclone, I think? Barring that, I guess it is off to mechanize or some similar web-scraping tool to use the webui programmatically. Both of these options suck, and I’m open to other ideas.
Either way, not communicating this to users is extremely poor form from Amazon. There aren’t enough users here to result in a huge outcry, which means they are unlikely to address the issue meaningfully. Cool.
On the topic of moving data currently stored on ACD to Gdrive. Do you think that it would be an option to take a cheap windows VPS (on a service like OVH) and then use a software like netdrive to move the data over ? doing it form home would just be a nightmare with my upload speed …
