  1. For what it's worth, I've been using CloudDrive to store my Plex media for the past year and the default settings have always worked well for me. The reason I posted this question is because I'd like to move all my data out of and away from CloudDrive. After the GDrive corrupt data issue a few weeks ago, I lost a ton of media on one of my drives and no longer trust it being in the cloud, so I'm trying to do a bulk download to physical hard drives. The default settings do not seem catered to performing bulk downloads, which is why we've been messing with all of the I/O options to figu
  2. Is there an obvious way to tell how many threads my CPU can handle? I'm up to 10 threads and 100MB minimum download and it's still taking forever to download even smaller amounts of data. This is the server I use: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Precision-T5600-16-Core-2-20GHz-E5-2660-16GB-RAM-2x-500GB-HDD/182388025949?hash=item2a772c6a5d:g:B4YAAOSw3Z9asP2S
  3. I increased download threads to 4 (it was at 2) and minimum download size to 40MB. Should I increase those two even further, or how do I know the limit to which I can increase them to?
  4. I think I set it to the largest chunk size when I created the drive. And I'll try increase the thread count and see if that has any impact at all.
  5. I have about 5TB worth of data in a CloudDrive (via Google Drive) that I'm trying to copy to a physical hard drive and it is taking forever to do so. I have a gigabit internet connection, so I don't think that is affecting CloudDrive's ability to download data to be able to move it. Is there a faster way to do this that I'm not aware of? So far it's been running ~12 hours and has only been able to move ~30GB to the physical hard drive.
  6. I have two Cloud Drives saved to that Google account, and one is working. Is there any way to differentiate between the two drives and restore only data for the drive that is experiencing issues?
  7. Got it. Just a thought - I have the ability to restore the data in my Google Drive account to a certain point in time. Could I use that functionality to restore the data on my drive to point where it can be used?
  8. Interesting. When I tried to select the drive using Recuva, it told me I needed to format it. After formatting it, Recuva crashes when I try to run it.
  9. Would doing this ensure that all data on the drives is backed up?
  10. Do I format it first, and then move forward with Recuva, or use Recuva while it is still formatted as raw?
  11. Okay. I've tried Chris's suggestion and that didn't work. I also ran chkdsk and am receiving the error "Insufficient disk space to insert the index entry." This comes up after a few lines of saying "Inserting an index entry into index $0 of file 19." I should note that the drive I'm trying this on is a 10TB drive and has ~5TB of free space (less than half full).
  12. I have two drives set up to work with CloudDrive and Google Drive that store some media. I'm not sure what happened, but when I checked them this morning (they were fine last night), Windows told me I need to format them before I can use them (in disk management they show as raw disks). I'm not sure if Windows updated overnight and something crashed, but I'm now afraid that if I format them, I'll lose all the data I have on them and have to redownload all of it from Google Drive (it's a couple TB worth of data). Is there any way to format these without losing the data? Up until
  13. Edit: I let it run overnight and now it is up and running! Sorry for the false alarm. I'm running Cloud Drive on Windows 10 and after an unexpected shutdown (lost power), I can't get the drives back up and running. It just pops up and says "Starting Services" with an increasing amount of time. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and the only UI I get is that window. I don't have an option to reset or anything. Am I going to lose all the data on my drives, and how can I prevent this in the future? Thank you.
