Recommendations for ACD->GSuite/Other transfers

I’ve tried Multcloud (very slow), CloudHQ (erratic) and am now having success with a basic Google Cloud Compute instance, a 10TB disk and oDrive’s CLI. I’m pulling down from my rclone encrypted folders on ACD at 80-100MB/s, will then use rclone to copy to my paid single-user unlimited GSuite account.

Let’s use this thread for discussing successes/failures with the various options.

To add to the above, my intention is to pull down my two large encrypted folders onto the GCC instance and then use rclone to copy plain (i.e. not using an encrypted remote, as already encrypted) to GDrive.

I’ll then just switch cloud providers in my rclone.conf file to point to a GDrive configuration, keep the same password etc, and mount once again. I’ve tested with a small folder and works great (provided you don’t want to upload to GDrive non-encrypted, change encryption method etc).

Responding to @Joseph_Douglas, I completed the quote increase form for my chosen region and it was approved in ~5m.

i have problems to configure the odrive in the vm from google compute, the download works but not the start from the background agent.
I follow this guide:

Can one people create a step by step guide for odrive please?

Maybe I am putting the crequest improperly can you show the dashboards path to reqesting the increase please it’s been over 7hours for me

@alneven. in reply to your question on the other thread.

did you add it as additional disk?

if so, what does

fdisk -l

@alneven, this is the set of instructions I followed:

I managed to change from rclone “crypt” to encfs during acd to gdrive conversion via google compute. If anyone is interested, just let me know.

i have ~20TB crypt files (rclone) on ACD and want to move this to gdrive without encryptions :slight_smile: can you help me?

Hi gnb,

Can you comment on how much that GCloud instance is costing you?

are you sure? without any encryption google knows exactly what you upload to them. therefore i recommend encfs.
if you do not need any encryption at all, its fine too.

how are you planning on moving to gdrive?

As a new user, one gets $300 in credit and my instance is estimated at $50 a month so don’t expect it to cost me anything (I’ll shut the instance down and delete once the transfer is done).

how are you planning on doing the transfer?

Can you comment on how/why encfs is better than rclone’s crypt?

since unlimited is not always quite unlimited, i like to be independent of rclone’s crypt. I am still using rclone to upload the data though.

In my opinion it is just a matter of time i have to switch to another unlimited cloud again. e.g. google bans “unlimited”.

using encfs allows me to switch to any cloud I please, without having rclone to support it (yeah i know i could mount it locally via rclone, but where is the point).

Also rclone with 8 simultaneous transfer seems to hog quite some CPU resources, which encfs seems to handle them with way less resources.

rclone crypt is quite under construction, see issues/discussion on github. until this is finalized i feel safer using AES 256.

Why now? Since I have to migrate now, I may also change to crypto on the way. :slight_smile:

Can you describe how you approached this without duplicating data on GCE?

Only thing comes to mind is making an rclone mount for GDrive that backs encfs and then rclone sync from the local crypted copy?

change encryption during ACD to GDRIVE transfer

  1. download all rclone-encrypted data to GCE hdd.
  2. create new remote encrypt/decrypt and set “remote:” to the path of your odrive download directory. use the same password/settings as for acd crypt. name it DECRYPT
  3. use rclone mount to mount it via:

rclone mount DECRYPT: /mnt/decrypted

/mnt/decrypted now shows the plain data!
4. use enfs in reverse crypto mode to show data in encfs encrypted form:

encfs --reverse /mnt/decrypted /mnt/encrypted

/mnt/encrypted now shows the data encrypted via encfs
5. use rclone sync to sync encfs encrypted data to gdrive:

rclone sync /mnt/encrypted GDRIVE:

Once transfer is finished. Mount an destination without encryption remote via rclone. e.g. to /mnt/gdrive-encrypted.
Then use encfs to mount it plain:

encfs /mnt/gdrive-encrypted /mnt/gdrive

/mnt/gdrive now shows the plain data.

Ah, that was the bit I was missing, thanks :slight_smile:
