  1. Apologies, I tried that but nothing is removed. Rebooting also does not clear any of the space and there are no active transfers (just the upload).
  2. So after doing some digging, I think this may be related to active usage of the CloudDrive. I have CloudDrive as a member of my DrivePool, and I point Plex to the DrivePool. While media is being watched, CloudDrive downloads data to the cache. My assumption is that that "downloaded" data is not clearing automatically, because the CloudPart folder keeps increasing. I've tried to clear the cache, but it keeps growing no matter what. Any ideas? ***EDIT*** Just to ensure it is not part of the issue, I removed the cache drive from the DrivePool. I was originally storing some data on it, but because of this I moved non-cloud data off and removed the drive from the pool.
  3. Hello, I've been uploading my data for Google Drive without issue, but recently the drive I've been using for cache is filling up. When I first set this up, I set an Expandable cache of 50GB on an 8TB drive. The cache would fill as I moved data, and the To Upload would show the amount to upload. As the To Upload decreased (from uploading), the cache would gradually go down until resting near 50GB again. Since I'm using an 8TB drive, I decided to move a large amount of data and let it upload. Recently, the Cached section keeps increasing, even while the To Upload goes down. I included a screenshot. During this time, the drive usage keeps going higher and I am now at about 93% usage. Even with uploading, the drive usage keeps getting higher without any new files being sent. Any idea what is causing this? I do use DrivePool and the CloudDrive is a member, but I restrict what data is stored where. I have not changed any DrivePool or CloudDrive settings before this happened, but I am thinking it might be the 90% store on other drives rule in DrivePool. Thanks in advance for the help! -MandalorePatriot
  4. What is even the gain of using so many threads? More connections, sure, but doesn't Google throttle bandwidth after a certain amount? And it also depends on your upload speed, I'm capped by IPS @ 40Mbps roughly, so it seems only 3 upload threads is plenty.
  5. For a homelab use, I can't really see reading and writing affecting the SSDs that much. I have an SSD that is being used for firewall/IPS logging and it's been in use every day for the past few years. No SMART errors and expected life is still at 99%. I can't really see more usage in a homelab than that. In an enterprise environment, sure, lots of big databases and constant access/changes/etc. I have a spare 500GB SSD I will be using for the CloudDrive and downloader cache. Thanks for the responses again everyone! -MandalorePatriot
  6. Thank you, I really appreciate your quick and informative answer!
  7. Hi everyone, I looked around on the forum and searched the forum & Google but was not able to find an answer to this question. Which is better for CloudDrive, an SSD or HDD cache? SSD will usually provide better performance with lower space and an HDD will provide more space with lower performance. So what is more important for the cache, space or performance? Thanks for reading! -MandalorePatriot
