Am I the only one having troubles with Google Drive taking ages to run through the checks? I’m migrating from ACD (it’s a bit more expensive but as of right now it seems to be unlimited even for single user…) and back with ACD the checks were way faster. Even when there were no changes to the source folder, it would have run through it in a few mins, compared to probably 30/40 minutes now.
I’m on Windows.
The command I use normally is:
./rclone.exe sync --checkers=50 --transfers=25 “\192.168.10.15\Backup” “gdrive:/Backup” --backup-dir $destinationHistoricFolder --suffix $suffix
$destinationHistoricFolder is just a powershell variable pointing to another folder in Gdrive.
This also means that small files are moved over slower. I can see that it takes over 25 minutes to actually start going through the files…
The second issue I have, which is related to the above one, is that I have another part of the script that syncs a folder in gdrive with another folder in gdrive.
Imagine something like this:
gdrive\Offsite >> I manually add content to this that is ONLY in gdrive
gdrive\Backups\Offsite >> A sync from gdrive\Offsite
gdrive\Backups\HistoricOffsite >> --backup-dir destination
This is the command:
./rclone.exe sync --checkers=50 --transfers=25 $sourcefolder_offsitedata $destinationfolder_offsitedata --backup-dir $destinationHistoricFolder_offsitedata --suffix $suffix_offsitedata
This one could be sitting there for hours, sometimes 16, 17 hours!
One more thing: when copying large files, the speed is great, even better than ACD, I can nearly saturate my bandwitdth (500mbps in up)
Any help/suggestion is appreciated.
