I’m moving data from my ACD to Google Drive by using “sync”. The speed was super at first but it’s getting slower and has no sign to catch up. I have tried creating myself a client ID and secret, and it worked at first but still, it doesn’t work now. I’ve tried creating new ID and secret, new project, switching to another Google Account and doing the same thing, or shut down the VM and wait for another 24 hours. But, the best speed I can get now is around 2MB, much slower than 20MB in my first transfer.
I’m worried because I have 33T in my ACD and they are millions of small files in complicated directories and I only have about 6 months to move them. I believe the speed issue is caused by the drive itself, not associated with different ids, projects or Google accounts. But although under this situation, “sync” and “copy” will still check every file. Now I must alternate my strategy to improve the speed, so I’m thinking to use “move” directly to move my data, since I will say bye to ACD anyway.
My only concern is that if this is safe? Because my data are encrypted by Arq Backup so the file directory is very complicated, and failed to copy one file or that if the directory structured is altered then it might cause the entire backup unreadable I guess.
Any ideas on this or any suggestion to improve the speed? Much appreciate it!
PS: I just tried some “move” and see empty folders are not moved??
