  1. Hello, During setup of CloudDrive, I made the mistake of not making duplicates of the data I was uploading. So now some of my data is only stored in the cloud and I would like to correct this. What is the best way to download the data but still keep it in the cloud as well? I've tried using File Explorer and copying the data to another drive, but the performance drops to 0 until more data is "downloaded". I am assuming it is because the download speed cannot keep up with the copy speed. I currently have gig download speeds, is there fine-tuning of the performance that can be don
  2. 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).
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Thank you, I really appreciate your quick and informative answer!
  8. 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
