Now I am aware that Google Drive has a 24 hour limit of ~720GB and the total job is 3TB. Typically what it would do once it reaches the 24 hour limit is that I would get an API error.
Instead I come back a few days later only to find that I have uploaded 4TB and that the transfer is still going. After watching it for a bit I also notice that the same media appears to be syncing over and over again. The other weird thing is that I am completely busting the ~720GB limit that Google is imposing and when I check the bandwidth graphs I can confirm that It’s actually uploading that much.
I should mention that I also have another data container that I synchronize once per month that is slightly bigger than the 3TB and I have no issues at all (I use the same command shown above with different path).
Has anyone come across something similar or may know what could be causing this behavior to happen?
This is interesting because when trying to transfer from a google cloud compute persistent disk to google drive I am being stopped by this 750gb limit. Hmm. I wonder if they moved GCC cloud disks to a different building than normal google drive disks. Last year this trick used to work.
