Can You Change the Google Drive Folder Location?

Question

Curious if there is a way to put the CloudDrive folder, which defaults to: (root)/StableBit CloudDrive, in a subfolder?

Not only for my OCD, but in a lot of instances, google drive will start pulling down data and you would have to manually de-select that folder per machine, after it was created, in order to prevent that from happening. When your CloudDrive has terabytes of data in it, this can bring a network, and machine to its knees.

For example, I'd love to do /NoSync/StableBit CloudDrive.  That way, when I install anything that is going to touch my google drive storage, I can disable that folder for syncing and then any subfolder I create down the road (such as the CloudDrive folder) would automatically not sync as well.

Given the nature of the product and how CloudDrive stores its files (used as mountable storage pool, separate from the other data on the cloud service hosting the storage pool AND not readable by any means outside of CloudDrive), it seems natural and advantageous to have a choice of where to place that CloudDrive data.

Thanks,

Eric

Further, it would be great if there was an indicator of which sub-folder in Google Drive corresponded to which "drive" in CloudDrive.  I'm sure the CloudDrive folder names are crazy for a reason so maybe another way to quickly identify which is which?

No. Sorry.

Well, they're not really meant to be accessed by a normal user.... so the names are the actual IDs for the drives. 

And i"m not sure this is something that can really be changed, at this point.

Understood, (and kind of assumed, but thought it was worth asking).  Getting pretty deep into CloudDrive testing and loving it.  Next is seeing how far i can get combining CD with the power of DrivePool and making pools of pools!

Thanks for following up.
