  1. I appreciate the response, and although I’ve been sparse on details, after the process completed no recovery of my files took place. I’ve since deleted my drive, and will probably go the physical drive route unless someone has success here backing up their CloudDrive data?
  2. After losing more than 200 painstakingly created files due to the Google Drive Fiasco... I can't in good conscious recommended this software anymore. I see no reports of Data Loss to the people who went the RClone route, but I do see multiple reports in this forum, mine included. I've lost more than a year's worth of data (in hours), time I don't to spare anymore, due to the way this application interacts with google drive. Newer folders showed up as "corrupted", while older files are gone in their entirety. I did a CHKDSK, which did nothing and I'm just completely apathetic to the whole thing right now. I don't know If I want to invest all this time again to make myself whole once more, but I'd recommend staying away from this product if you value your data... and time.

    Data corrupted..?

    How do I safely unmount the drive to run chkdsk?

    Data corrupted..?

    I can't even DELETe my corrupt folders.. ffs

    Data corrupted..?

    I haven’t done anything to my drives, but I know there was a problem google last night. I saw the software threw a few problems and dismounted and remounted... but finally a few files are lost and now I have to go through the trouble of doing it again. Any solution in sight?
  6. Try the StableBit.CloudDrive_1.1.0.999 Beta http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/
  7. Yeah this is the only annoyance for me... that and not being able to transfer files to the CloudDrive un-attended because it dismounts
  8. Hey, guys, I had a CloudDrive on Google with multiple Terabytes of Data, and while attached it no longer is displaying my files. Here are the actions I took before this happened. 1) Ordered SSD to use as SSD Cache Drive for DrivePool 2) Installed SSD, but wasn't being detected --> restarted 2 times until I saw drive available in device manager, but not assigned letter/partition 3) On the 3rd restart, opening Disk Management (W10) Prompt came up for unidentified drive asking if I wanted MBR or GPT --> Opted for GPT, but drive did not appear in Disk Management, 2nd restart produced the same thing 4) Manually assigned drive through DiskPart utility, first Selected drive, set as MBR --> Active, then format and assign | Changed mind, and cleaned, set as GPT and manually formatted a small space so it would appear in DiskManagement 5) Drive appeared with 100MB Allocated, and the rest unallocated ---> deleted all volumes, formatted and assigned drive Letter 6) Annexed SSD to DrivePool and everything seemed fine and dandy, so I unassigned the Drive Letter 7) Noticed that after restarting my computer 5-6 times, the Cloud Drive wasn't being mounted anymore 8) Drive displayed mounted but wasn't in explorer. Re-authorized and restarted... nothing 9) Detached Drive, RevoUninstall CloudDrive --> restarted Computer 10) Installed again, attached drive/encryption... drive still didn't appear in Explorer 11) Checked Disk Management and saw that the last disk "7" was unallocated/unassigned... trying assigning Drive Letter without formatting but it didn't work with CloudDrive 12) Had to format "CloudDrive" drive so a drive letter would show up and Mount on Explorer Window 13) RevoUninstalled --> Restart --> Install latest Beta 14) Attached Drive "mounting, looking for data on Provider" ---> Mounted, but no files accessible 15) My Drive is mounting with my encryption key, and CloudDrive displays the Data occupying the CloudDrive along with the free space, but explorer window says otherwise 16) Ran CHDISK through Properties --> Tools, No errors? Drive mounts, but no files show up The drive is being mounted and it's apparently looking for the Data, but it's not displaying said files and the occupation of the drive in the Virtual Drive that's created. Creating another drive works fine, but I'm trying to access the files I painstakingly already uploaded... When I check the CloudPart folder the cache files that are numerically named and allocated with space are small. I don't know what's going on.. but I just lost all my data for no reason at all?
  9. I don't know how to fix this. But If I'm supposed to be using the Cloud Drive (through Google) as a "normal" drive, it always behaves erratically. I've mentioned it a few times here, but the software will not even BEGIN uploading until the very last byte has been written to the local cache. So for example, if I'm uploading 7 videos, and they all total 100GB, even with 99GB in the queue to upload, it won't even upload until that last gig is written to the local cache. This is frustrating because it causes two problems: error messages and wasted time. The first big issue is the constant barrage of notifications that "there's trouble connecting to the provider" or downloading, or uploading, but it doesn't even upload! A consequence of these constant error messages is that the drive unmounts because of these messages triggering the software to disconnect. So unless I'm babying my computer, I can't leave the files transferring as normal (which means not pressing the pause upload button). The other issue is the waste of time. Instead of uploading what's currently in the local cache and subsequently deleting that queue, it waits for EVERYTHING to write to the local cache. Settings: UL/DL Threads = 10 Upload Threshold: 1 MB or 5 Minutes Error Message(s): I/O error: Cloud Drive Cloud Drive (D:\) is having trouble uploading data to Google Drive. This operated is being retired. Error: SQLite error cannot rollback - no transaction is active This error has occurred 2 times. Make sure that you are connected to the internet and have sufficient bandwidth available. I/O error Cloud drive Cloud Drive (D:) is having trouble uploading data to Google Drive in a timely manner. Error: Thread was being aborted. This error has occured 2 times. This error can be caused by having insufficient bandwidth or bandwidth trhottling. Your data will be cached locally if this persists. If these two problems are fixed, this software would be perfect. Now I've recommended this program many times because when you're monitoring it works beautifully. But the only thing missing is rectifying these issues so it actually behaves like a normal drive that doesn't constantly throw up errors.
  10. So that's what I'm trying to figure out. What exactly is causing the bottle-neck from my NVME Drive to the NVME Local Cache, is it the decryption? I'm really happy with the product, but if I could get higher transfer speeds I'd be extremely happy
  11. Yes. This is my workflow Downloader program (Downloads + Unpacks) ---> Other program flags download, and begins transferring to Cloud Drive This process is from NVME to NVME, so there should be no bottlenecks caused by the drive itself. Also I do have the trigger set to 10 minutes, but if the program is displaying that 10GB are ready to upload, that should've activated the upload trigger long before the 5 minutes lapsed. For now I've had to do it manually..I pause the upload, and wait for the file to "upload" and/or transfer to the Local cache, and then I enable uploading which works. I also use 10 threads upload/download, but I've noticed that not disabling uploading and letting it handle on its own works.. eventually but then I get errors about the drive not uploading/downloading in time; although harmless, they're a bit annoying to see.
  12. Yes, My transfer speeds remain unchanged between all builds to date
  13. There we go. I just don't understand..chunks don't begin uploading until the entire file is copied. So if a 15GB file is being transferred, and 7 GB are already in the local cache and ready to upload, it won't begin uploading until the entire file is in the local cache. Also the transfer rates make absolutely no sense to me. I know it can't be my NVME causing the slowness, but I have my i7-7700k OC'd to 4.8 GHz, and that should be good for the encryption and splitting of files right?
  14. Local Cache Size 10GB+ | Expandable | NVME | 250GB Free out of 500GB | 100 MB RAM Cache
