trying to delete files with remote gdrive mounted folder, and the speed is very slow. about 25 files get deleted per second, while i have about 100k files need to be deleted so it take me 3~4 days, i cannot use purge as those file are located in different folder.

is it normal that delete of remote files at this speed? or is there any other method that can allow for faster deletion?

Probably. Google drive is quite slow at individual file operations.

If you can use it rclone purge deletes whole directories at once.

thanks for confirmation.
