Original post - Proxy for Amazon Cloud Drive
Back when rclone was banned from ACD, lots of us migrated elsewhere, like Google Drive. I got all my data transferred at the time and stopped using ACD. I forgot to cancel my auto-renewal and only noticed last week. Since it’s there and I don’t have a backup of most of what I transferred to GD, I decided to use the proxy method demonstrated in the post above to copy content I acquired in the meantime (and new content) over to ACD.
Transferring from my seedbox (either using rclone to copy new stuff directly, or using rclone to copy from GD > ACD) has suddenly bombed. I get 100s of MB/s when transferring to my VPS. I get ~80 when copying to GD, but ACD had dropped to ~2MB/s.
I also tried piggybacking on a different app (Cloudberry) to see if the speeds would change, but they remained the same. Anyone else had their ACD speeds severely limited lately?
UPDATE: If I limit the number of transfers to 1 (default 4) then I get ~25MB/s. Still nowhere near GD, but 10 times faster than before.
UPDATE2: Pointless exercise now as Amazon UK has dropped the unlimited plan (£55) and the new pricing structure would cost me £1599.80. Slight increase. Oh well.
