  1. I've been trying to find more information on Local CloudDrives and I'm not doing a great job at searching for the right keywords to find the posts with the answers. For a particular scenario, I'm looking to replace my usage of veracrypt (file container) with a local clouddrive, partly because the smaller chunk files would make it play nicer with transfers and backup/duplication software, drivepool being one of them, (full disk encryption wouldn't really suit my purposes in this case). I'm curious if there's any pros/cons I should be aware of when using a Local CloudDrive the way I
  2. Wow, you weren't kidding. I had used it to make a copy of quite a few files a long while back (going from GSuite to personal GDrive), but I guess I never tried to copy any folders over, or if I did, I forgot that it couldn't be done. It's quite surprising that they wouldn't have that functionality in Google, even after all this time. I just tried copying over one of my CloudDrives (GSuite to personal GDrive) and it was a much larger pain that I thought it would be. On top of that, sharing doesn't seem to be working properly between my two accounts. Even though I shared every file and fold
  3. This would be a great feature to have. It'd be pretty convenient too if you just need to access something quickly or don't want to unintentionally change anything. I do the same with Veracrypt volumes as well.
  4. Wouldn't it be much easier to just use Google's built in share function to share all your data from one account to the other (if it's between 2 Google accounts)? It'll be much faster (and potentially cheaper) than using a VPS. Although I can understand if people want to avoid giving Google any indication that the two accounts are linked together in some way. If one account gets shut down for TOS violations, no need to put your other accounts at risk; in which case a VPS is the best route. But if that isn't an issue, I imagine using Google's share function would be the fastest way and shari
  5. The remote desktop application NoMachine (nomachine.com) seems to cause both DrivePool and CloudDrive's UI apps to crash. It doesn't seem to affect Scanner at all though. This only seems to happen on whatever computer is acting as the host/server (the computer being controlled) and only when it is being actively controlled remotely. When the computer that is acting as the server is idle, CloudDrive and DrivePool work just fine. If you leave both CloudDrive and DrivePool minimized throughout the entire session, they will be unaffected and will behave normally when you view the windows agai
  6. Are there any plans to bring this tool to other providers, like Google Drive? Being able to download your entire Clouddrive folder and then use it as a local CloudDrive drive sounds like a very useful feature to have.
  7. I'm on version 855, but as of this version, this option is still available. When you attach a drive or create a new one, select Advanced Settings and you'll see an option to select your cache drive. The cache drive can only be an internally connected drive, I believe. I think the reasoning was that if the drive gets disconnected while it's being actively used as the cache, then the driver will crash and that could cause your system to blue screen, so they set the application to only use internal drives.
  8. The amount of time it takes CloudDrive to go through the recovery process depends on how large your cache is for that CloudDrive (default is 1gb, I think), how much was queued to upload when it was shut down, and how fast your internet speed is. When it enters recovery, it basically uploads everything that was in the cache and anything that was waiting to upload. So if you have a cache size of 2gb, and you had 3gb of stuff that was waiting to upload, then when CloudDrive goes through recovery, it'll have to upload a total of 5gb worth of data. So if your internet connection is capable of u
  9. When you reboot/shutdown, do you press "shutdown immediatly" when Windows says there are applications that are preventing you from shutting down? I know that CloudDrive can take a while to shut down, but if CloudDrive is allowed to cleanly shut down then it won't enter recovery when you start the computer up again.
  10. I don't believe there's any option to add encryption after the initial drive setup. Your best bet would be to create a new drive.

    Stable release?

    The changelog says it's a release candidate. So it's close to a release.
  12. This is an issue many have with Amazon. I've had it in almost every version of CloudDrive that I've tried out. It's to be expected and is explained here: http://community.covecube.com/index.php?/topic/2623-stablebit-overupload-data/?p=18130
  13. From my experience, it doesn't have as much to do with overall drive size, as much as it has to do with the number of files and directories on it. I have a large drive (200TB) and it has a little over 1000 files and about 100 folders adding up to about 350GB in data. That drive only needs about 570MB of space for pinned data (directories and metadata). I also have a 10TB drive that has about 44 thousand files on it, over a thousand folders, all of that adding up to about 280GB, and it needs 700MB of space for pinned data. I'm guessing a large part of that size difference is index files, es

    General FAQ?

    They had removed it, but it seems it's since been fixed. I'm not sure about the best settings for creating a drive, but the only advice I have is limiting the number of download/upload threads. I'm not sure how many threads you can have (10/10 might be fine), but I do know that once it hits the 15-20 range, there will be some severe throttling. I usually leave the upload verification on, but I believe it downloads the chunk to check it against the uploaded one. I don't know if Amazon is any different, but Stablebit CloudDrive isn't able to run any kind of checksum in the cloud for most
