In March 2017, Google introduced Drive File Stream, a desktop application for G Suite (now Google Workspace) customers using Windows and macOS computers that maps Google Drive to a drive letter on the operating system, and thus allows easy access to Google Drive files and folders without using a web browser. It also features on-demand file access, when the file is downloaded from Google Drive only when it is accessed. Additionally, Drive File Stream supports the Shared Drives functionality of Google Workspace.

Google Drive allows users to share drive contents with other Google users without requiring any authorization from the recipient of a sharing invitation. This has resulted in users receiving spam from unsolicited shared drives. Google is reported to be working on a fix.
A Note on Backups: Before the cloud became an available and popular destination, the most common way to back up was primarily to a tape, a CD, or an external hard drive. As the cloud became more readily available and affordable, it quickly became the most popular off-site storage medium because it eliminated the need for manual backups by automating the process. Automation makes backing up much easier and more reliable.
Thank you for sharing this great article! But I have one question though, in the diagram of part5, how is the data calculated, or measured? For example, google drive has a 94.4% rate, I just wonder how this number came out. Would appreciate it if you can explain it , thanks!
EDIT: Also - have you set up your own clientID for Onedrive? This could certainly affect performance. I have no idea what the shared common rclone quota is for Onedrive is - ie. if it's ample or not. Would have to ask Nick about that.
Otherwise it is possible that this is something that has just changed - or it could concievably be high load due to Corona-related thing. I have heard that Google had some minor issues in some systems (including Gdrive) from a high spike in traffic recently. I guess a lot of people suddenly had a lot of time to sit on their computers and do some cleanup ...
Downloading files from google drive to local is vert fast, I can fully utilize 1 Gbps. When uploading to onedrive from local I can also utilize full 1 Gbps. The problem occurs when directly copying google drive to onedrive.
Google has announced they are updating the interface you use to share files from Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms) on the web. This will replace the previous interface used to share files and manage members of shared drives.
Sometimes, even though you click on download in Google Drive, your files will be zipped but the download won\u2019t start. There are a few reasons why this happens.If you have a pop-up blocker app, this is most likely the cause of the issue. Disable the pop-up blocker and try downloading your files again.Antivirus may block pop-ups as well. If this is the case, you have to disable your antivirus from doing so.Lastly, maybe you have accidentally blocked Google Drive pop-ups in your Chrome settings. To revert this setting:1. Click on the three vertical dots in the top-right corner of your screen.2.\u00a0Click \u201cSettings.\u201d3.\u00a0Go to \u201cPrivacy and Security\u201d and click on \u201cSite Settings.\u201d4.\u00a0Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on \u201cPop-ups and redirects.\u201d5.\u00a0If there is a Google Drive URL in the \u201cBlock\u201d section, click on the three vertical dots next to that URL, and then click \u201cAllow.\u201dIf this doesn\u2019t solve your problem either, then this is probably a system error.Note: To avoid this issue altogether, download files that are smaller than 2GB and make sure you don\u2019t download more than 500 files at once." } }, "@type": "Question", "name": "How Do I Download an Entire Folder From Google Drive?", "acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer", "text": "To download a folder from your Google Drive:1.\u00a0Log in to your Google Drive.2.\u00a0Right-click on the folder that you want to download and click \u201cDownload.\u201dNote: Google will automatically convert your folder to a zip file.
