    Duplicate CloudDrives across GSuite Accounts?

    With that approach you would create clones of your gdrive. They would all have the same global unique identifier (guid) and I doubt that you can attach them at the same machine simultaneously. The question is also, which tool you would use and where it would run. If you run rclone on a local machine it would still up- and download everything. Better would be an online service like MultCloud, which could sync data between multiple Gsuite accounts.

    Looks like a false alarm by Avira. The file gets flagged clean by all other antivirus solutions on virustotal.
  3. It seems that you are looking for an encryption solution on top of Google’s CBFS (which does not support encryption by itself). That’s not what StableBit CloudDrive is designed for. But perhaps other cloud encryption solutions (like Cryptomator) meet your requirements and work with Google Drive File Stream.
  4. Where do you think gets file stream data stored, before you can access it? In a cache folder on your local drive! What about a thought experiment? If CloudDrive would allow you to put the cache on a file stream drive or any other cloud-based file system (and there are good reasons, why it does not), what would happen with one chunk of data from the CloudDrive you want to read? That chunk needs to be downloaded from the CloudDrive and put into the CloudDrive cache, which we now assume to be located on the FS drive. Therefore, it first would get downloaded and stored into the local FS cache, from where it then would get uploaded to the FS cloud (Google Drive). Finally, two network flows (cloud -> local -> cloud) instead of one.

    Google Drive

    Well, looking at the high number of critical and important pending code change requests I expect, that it still might take a while, before that feature request 27686 (Add support for Google Team Drive) gets completed.

    Google Drive

    It seems that Google Team Drives cannot be used with CloudDrive yet (see here).

    CloudDrive with more than one computer.

    Don't mix up CloudDrive and DrivePool. CloudDrive provides harddrive-like images located in the cloud, while CloudPool is based on hidden directories on its pooled hard or cloud drives. Like a physical drive a cloud drive can be attached to only one computer at the same time. But you can move it from one to another computers (detach it here and attach it there).

    Download speed with google drive.

    Your screenshot shows that you are using an older CloudDrive version. Perhaps the latest version ( changes something.

    How to get notifications back

    Check the Autostart tab of the Task-Manager. It should have an activated entry “StableBit DrivePool Notifications”. If its status is deactivated, then you need to toggle it to activated. If the entry is completely missing, you should repair the DrivePool installation or reinstall. If the entry is there and active, but no process is running, then something is preventing it from running, most likely a virus protection software, or it’s crashing for some other reason. In that case you maybe find some details in the event logs or the virus protection logs.

    I/O Error

    I saw the same issue quite frequently in the past (not only Google Drive but OneDrive too). I had to press the Retry button several times, before the affected drives got finally mounted. But things improved with recent beta builds (currently using BETA). Maybe you give it a try.
  11. Did you try it with these settings? You could also try to exclude the hidden PoolPart.xxx… folders on the drives the pool consists of from the virus protection. Or you take a more risky approach and deactivate the virus protection completely for a while.

    Upgrade failing....

    Any reason, why you don't take a more current build? According to the change log is this the latest one, which passed the upgrade and functional tests: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/StableBit.CloudDrive_1.1.0.1025_x64_BETA.exe
  13. The root folder is called "StableBit CloudDrive". If you only renamed that folder, just give it that default name again. The entire (Google Drive) StableBit folder structure looks like this: \StableBit CloudDrive\CloudPart-xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx-CONTENT(-ATTACHMENT,-METADATA) The "xxxx..." string is a placeholder for the global unique id in hex code (e.g. abcdef01-abc1-def2-1234-12345abcd67f). All files inside the folders on Google Drive have that id in their name and you will find it also in the cache folder's name on your local machine (e.g. \CloudPart-abcdef01-abc1-def2-1234-12345abcd67f).

    High CPU usage after Google update

    It looks like that the “pinning issue” is caused by the prefetcher. I turned off prefetching on the Google drives and did not see any pinning data process since then. Furthermore, by disabling the prefetching I also got rid of frequent IO errors and timeout warnings (not one red error or yellow warning message for two days now). I’m using version BETA.

    High CPU usage after Google update

    But the question is: Why is it’s reducing the amount of pinned data and then running through the pinning process so frequently? It happens only with Google drives and freezes the computer several times a day - very annoying!
