    Google drive backup and sync client issue

    I have a Hetzner server (Helsinki DC) running windows and when I use google backup and sync ,it seems to be very slow. With browser upload i get 400-500Mbps to google drive but with backup and sync client, maximum speed i get is 50-60mbps, sometimes even lower. Network settings are ok, proxy settings is set to direct connection and upload/download limit to don't limit. anyone else has faced this issue? any idea what could be the problem?

    Thank you

    • No.. you can post it on google drive forum.

      I am going to #lexit

    • Google software tends to suck (at least on PC), just use RClone and be done with it.

    • Is it safe to use gdrive for backup ?

      Depends on how important your data is and which plan you're on.

    • I suppose the speed would also depend on how many files and how large the files you get to backup and sync with Google drive.

    • I think it will be better to have 3 sd card and 1 2 slot card reader and attach it to the usd driver and make folder sync and watcher program that syncs to card each minutes..Or hours.... No more Google product...

      Yes?

      Yes?

      I provided a vague response to your vague question. If it's only Linux ISOs, and you're not sharing them, it's probably fine.

      Very often sync software is throttled to a bandwidth limit not to disturb regular usage on the client.

      The Dropbox application also has this option to set a speed limit on the bandwidth.
