Hi there, I’m on the latest version of masOS, and I have a G Suite account and I am uploading to Google Drive through odrive with a Premium account.
I am having a number of issues. I am uploading several terabytes of data from an external hard drive, so I expected it to be a slow process. Unfortunately, I am running into issues with the desktop application.
First, the drop-down menu from the “Status menus” part of macOS (the top-right corner) randomly stopped working. Normally, when you click on the pink infinity logo, the menu pops open and I can see “Syncing changes (#)”, “Open odrive folder”, “Manage storage”, etc… HOWEVER, after random amounts of time (sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes 2 hours), this menu simply DOESN’T open anymore. I click on it, and it looks like its trying to open, but it doesn’t. If I click it a few times, then sometimes it will open up, but usually not. Annoyingly, the only way to close the app now is through the Activity Monitor app. It’s become a huge pain to have to constantly end the process and restart the app all the time. I need to wait a few weeks for this to upload, so I’d like to have confidence in leaving my computer alone to upload for 12 hours without having to worry that it froze after the first 15 minutes. I have tried the three different upload speed options under “Set bandwidth throttling”, but I can’t tell if they actually do anything different. Also, can the usage guide for odrive gives NO meaningful information on the differences between “Unlimited”, “Normal”, and “Limited”. What do these actually mean? Does leaving it on “Unlimited” trigger issues with bandwidth caps more frequently?
Second, I have noticed that the list of files being upload under the “Syncing changes (#)” sub-sub menu doesn’t seem to reflect ALL of the files that I am actually uploading. It’s shows some of them, but not all of them. Is this because smaller files (under 100kb, for example) aren’t there long enough to warrant appearing in this list? I mean, I have a wide variety of file sizes; terabytes of data, millions of items (files/folders). I don’t expect everything to show up. I just want to confirm that this is expected behavior. When I sync massive folders with many sub-folders and files, I can see that it appears everything did in fact sync. But I don’t have 100% confidence.
Let me know.
