I have 2 gdrive accounts on different gsuite domains. I want to backup ~20TB from one gsuite account to the other. I tried using Google's built-in transfer function but it failed after a week and 4TB
I want to avoid upload limits and just set it and forget it on my headless machine. This could take about a month. Here's what I plan:
share folders from oldgdrive to newgdrive
server_side_across_configs = true and
stop_on_upload_limit = true (just in case the upload hits a wall) to rclone.conf
rclone copy oldgdrive: newgdrive: -v -P --bwlimit 8M
As I continue to grow storage, I'll be able to run
rclone sync oldgdrive: newgdrive: -v -P --bwlimit 8M which should hopefully make this easier in the future.
Is there anything I'm missing? Is there a faster/better way to do this? I tried using Shared Drives as suggested in the second link below but I couldn't copy the files, just transfer ownership.
I've been using Rclone for quite some time, but now I need to move some 700gb from Google Drive to another Gsuite account, I cannot use the copy feature it seems since the two accounts use two different domains
I found this:
Can copy between Google Drive accounts without download and upload files?
Which seems to indicate that the feature was implemented into Rclone, what exactly is the command? Also I intend on renting out a VPS to do this since my internet connection is not the …
It's literally just rclone copy src: dest: --bwlimit=8M and let it go and come back in a month. Or you can get complicated and use service accounts and such.
Great, thanks. Any reason why the
--bwlimit tag didn't work?
rclone copy oldgdrive: newgdrive: -v -P --bwlimit=8M

Ah server side copies. Since you're not any transferring data the bwlimit won't do it. You're not using any. I think you'd have to use stop_on_upload_limit as you mentioned and just rerun once a day.
Do you need help?
It can be done with service accounts easily
Will be over in an hour
Can you post a link describing what that is? I can probably figure it out.
Try any of these pls..
If not able to do..then ping me back
I can help
@Roshanconnor I'm using folderclone. In the multi-manager setup first step "Enable Drive API" I'm supposed to do that on the gsuite account that has gdrive files I want to transfer, right? The problem is my gsuite domain does not allow various IAM privileges, like resourcemanager.projects.get and serviceusage.services.get.
Am I SOL?
You dont have to use gsuite account
you can just use a normal gmail account
But remember, that gmail should have manager access to the TeamDrive
If you need more help..then pm me in Telegram
