Transfer from Gdrive to local

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Need to migrate 70TB from Gdrive to local disk. What is the best way to do this as I know there is a potential limit on how much I can transfer per day. Does not look like rclone sync is the best option? Is there a way I can limit it to say XGB per day until it's all done?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.62.2

  • os/version: slackware 15.0+ (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 6.1.33-Unraid (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.20.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive to Local NAS


can run rclone sync a single time and let it run by using --bwlimit

@asdffdsa if I used bwlimit of some amount I could pretty much run it nonstop until completed without worrying about quotas? Is that what you are saying?

yes, that is correct.

from forum posts, max download per 24 hours from gdrive is 10TiB
10TiB at 120MiB/s takes approx 23 hours

what is the download speed of your internet connection?

Gigabit. Appreciate the help!
