I know that this has been discussed here a number of times and for a long time. One remedy at the time was --fast-list.
However, we have now found with several root servers from different providers that the upload and download to or from Google Drive runs at almost GBit speed as soon as more than 1 file is loaded. If more than 1 file is loaded, some of these will also be loaded with up to 500 Mbit.
If there is only one file, however, the speed always drops to 20 Mbytes / s, i.e. 160 Mbit, no matter which settings are made with rclone.
So is this a typical Google server problem or can something be improved here with rclone?
