Google Drive upload speed is very slow

Post by lotekjunky » Thu Feb 07, 2019 5:41 pm

For some reason, the forum software thinks that "google" and "drive" and "slow" are too common of words to search for, so it returns 0 results and is forcing me to make a new thread for something that may very well have been answered somewhere else but is memory holed.

I have pro v7.9.0.0 installed. I have a couple of profiles set to backup media to Google drive. It is SLOW! Like, 300k slow. My upload speed is 30mb. This upload of 300gb has taken 4 days (I just noticed it was still running). What's the deal? Is it always this slow (I've never tried it out before). I know I had a very similar situation with Amazon Cloud Drive which made me cancel that service. If speeds of < 1mbps were common, I'd think I'd see it all over the place as people were complaining about it, but I don't really see anyone else talking about it.

Can someone help?

So no other people are having this problem? I tested it this weekend on my laptop over a cellular connection and it maxed out exactly the same. Uploads to dropbox scream by at 20MB/S. G drive takes 50 years to upload a text file.

This is the response I got when I opened a support ticket:

Unfortunately, technical support and updates for Pro/SE V7 is officially ended on December 1st 2017. Support through this ticketing channel is only available for SyncBackPro/SE V8 users. You can refer to our support policy here:https://help.2brightsparks.com/support/solutions/articles/43000335580If you wish you can evaluate with Pro V8 version to see if it helps? If you do not own a copy of SyncBackPro V8 and wish to test it's functions, you are welcome to try our fully functional SyncBack, which we offer a free 30-day evaluation. 
When uploading large amount of data (300 GB) to Google Drive, we recommend using SyncBackPro 64-bit version to avoid out-of-memory errors. Please read this article for additional details:
