I’m trying to figure out how to prevent new B2 buckets from syncing.
The other day I made a new bucket to handle some backups from my NAS. I use rclone over there to upload, and fire off an upload once/week. I noticed my desktop mac was a bit slow and there was a huge amount of traffic (30MB/s or so). After some poking, I realized odrive had opted to start syncing up this 3TB+ bucket.
I also noticed that some snapshots that I’d made from the Backblaze backup side and stored in the bucket had synced.
Any way to prevent future buckets from auto-syncing like this?
It sounds like you may have set some folder sync rules on the top-level B2 folder and they are telling odrive to sync new folders (buckets) that show up. This would happen if you perform a recursive sync at the top and check “Save and apply to new files and folders”. You can find more information here: https://docs.odrive.com/docs/sync-source-changes#section-folder-sync-rules
To stop this, do the following to reset all folders to using placeholders and not auto-downloading or auto-expanding anything.:
- Right-click on the root B2 link folder and select “Sync”
- Slide the Slider all the way to “Nothing”
- Leave “Include Subfolders” unchecked
- Check “Save and apply to new files and folders”
- Click the sync button
This will set all folders to “Nothing” for Download and set both checkboxes unchecked.
You can then apply rules to individual folders/buckets as you see fit.
