I’ve used Safari to do most of the uploads, while keeping just a half-dozen large files (180 MB to 900 MB) unsynced to be able to retry syncing them with odrive.
However, even with the bulk of the files already uploaded, I am still having problems with odrive and OneDrive when syncing those large files: odrive will get to 99%-100% (yes, sometimes, the upload gets to 100%, and yet the file ends up in the “Waiting” category), then stall, then switch the files to the “Waiting” category, “to be auto-retried later”, or temporarily to the “Not Allowed” category, before treating them once again like “Waiting” files.
Smaller files, in the 40-60 MB range, do experience the same kind of “stalling/waiting”, but not systematically (some get uploaded successfully at once), and when they do, they usually get through on the second try.
I don’t get a pop-up when I select a file in the “Not Allowed” category, though. So I can’t provide you with any more details about the issue. Except to add that odrive gets into an endless sync loop: it retries to upload, stalls at 99-100%, switches the file to “Waiting” (or alternatively to “Not Allowed”), then retries the next file, fails again, etc. It’s been going on for the better part of an hour now. odrive keeps juggling those three large files around over and over again. Here is a screen shot of the odrive menu when I select a Not Allowed file (no pop-up in sight):
To make you feel better, let me repeat that I am getting similar errors when trying to use Chrome to upload files to OneDrive: it will try to sync three files at a time and that will work for a time, but then two out of the three uploads will appear to stall (anywhere from 1% to 99%, so that’s different from odrive’s @99-100% failures), with just one proceeding normally, and then, when that one is done, sometimes one of the stalled uploads will proceed to the end successfully, or a new one will start at normal speed. Unfortunately, eventually, all three uploads stall (again, anywhere from 1% to 99%) and Chrome then asks me to “Reload” the OneDrive page due to an unspecified error. So there is obviously something wrong with the way some clients deal with OneDrive, and since that includes Chrome, odrive is in good company.
Safari, however, works much better: the upload process will slow down over time and doing more than 1k-1.5k files at a time is not a good idea, but the uploads won’t stall as they do in Chrome or odrive. And when that happens, reloading the OneDrive page restores the normal upload speed for another large batch of files. Here is a screen shot of Safari having successfully and concurrently uploaded those three large files that proved so difficult to handle for odrive:
I hope you’ll be able to make sense of it. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
