Google Drive 403 download quota still active after 48 hours

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Trying to sync my files from drive to onedrive and its been 48 hours and im still getting the

Failed to copy: failed to open source object: open file failed: googleapi: Error 403: The download quota for this file has been exceeded., downloadQuotaExceeded

on my account. My drive is a teamdrive and not sure what to do now. I used a crypt backup for my data.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.55.1

  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: arm
  • go/version: go1.16.3
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Drive + Onedrive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone sync drive:/testfolder onedrive:/ --progress

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = onedrive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
token = 
drive_id = 
drive_type = business

type = drive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
scope = drive
token = 
team_drive = 0AGXgyaOivA9aUk9PVA
root_folder_id = 

A log from the command with the -vv flag

There's really no magic for quotas. You just have to wait it out.

But shouldnt it have lasted for 24 hours? I know it isnt an rclone issue but just a cap from google. Its just concerning ive been 'banned' for 48 hours since my last upload to the drive

There's no official post from Google I've ever read that says exactly how the download quota works or what it is based off of. You can always make a support request and ask what the issue is and they might give you more details.

Is it shared with anyone else? Maybe someone else is doing something?

I had bought a slot for this drive so i have no idea on any admin rights or even how many users are within the teamdrive unfortunately.

Sounds like it's getting heavy usage at that point if it's not resetting.

I've never hit a download issue but I'm the sole user of my drive.

So the quota would still be in effect per owner rather than per user on the main account then? Im sure you wouldnt have an exact answer to that but like dang, whats the point of uploading my data if i cant get it back :confused:

I wouldn't even want to guess as there seems to be different limits for team drives rather than non team.

Well dang, thats very unforunate then. Hopefully ban goes away soon so i can move it to onedrive instead. Do you know if theres limitations there?

Sorry as I don't use Onedrive at all (with rclone anyway).

No worries. So with drive, how does the '--drive-server-side-across-configs command' work? Like can i copy from one team drive to another per say with this flag? How does it work?

Yes, server side copying is for server side copies on the same provider. You can server side on Google Drives/Team Drives, but not like Google Drive to One Drive.

So would me doing

rclone sync drive:/testfolder drive2:/ --progress --drive-server-side-across-configs

just copy everything to the second drive without any quota errors?

It doesn't bypass any quotas, it just happens server side rather than using your bandwidth.

Alright. Well just tried running the command and its been 5 minutes and no data transferred yet :confused:

Can confirm the quotas are linked to the drive owner, not the user accessing them.

Have done many experiments in the past to try and bypass the quotas by sharing files and folders to other users.

If that gdrive drive is being constantly hit by multiple users, you're going to have a bad time.
