How to limit bandwidth?


Gbyrd

Question

I am trying to find a way on the software to at least limit the bandwidth being used so i can continue to do activities online while not getting killed as the uploading is being maxed. Is there a way to do this? Or do i just pause the uploads via disabling upload threads.

 

Also is there a way to change the cache directory after it's already been established? I put it on an external drive thats connected to my bay via USB3 was hoping to put it on an internal drive to get better speeds.

Hi,

 

Go here: http://dl.covecube.com/CloudDriveWindows/beta/download/

 

Scroll to the bottom and download the latest version (1.0.0.722 at time of writing).   That has a bandwidth limiter in it.    It's under "Drive Options" > Performance > I/O Performance.    You can safely upgrade without causing any issues, unless you're using Amazon Cloud Drive, in which case, ask Stablebit first. 

 

You can change your cache drive by Detaching the drive, then re-attaching it and it will give you the option of picking a new cache drive.   You can do this safely as long as you don't have any data queued to upload.    You'll lose your cache when you do it of course. 

 

Cheers

They do have similar performance. However the USB specs allow for periodic "unplanned and unsafe" disconnects, because it's USB.  SATA is the better way to go EVERY TIME. Even if it's eSATA.
