I got the infamous
Error 403 Download Quota Exceeded error (nothing crazy, just my plex server and my backup destination). I waited 24 hours and everything started working fine, but it got me thinking: Are the undocumented API limits per google cloud project or per google cloud account?
I followed instructions to create my own credentials when I made the rclone remote, but I still got a 24 hr ban. If API limits are per project, I wonder what's to stop me from creating a separate project (and credentials) for the rare times when i get rate banned. I'd just use the
--config flag to specify the alternate rclone config with the different creds.
If this worked, I have an idea for nifty workaround that could be merged into rclone's native functionality.
