Insync eating up all CPU and not syncing on Kubuntu 18.04.5 LTS

Insync starts syncing for a while but after a few minutes it eats up all my CPU and stops syncing at all. This is what I see when this happens:


This is what Insync’s GUI looks like when this happens:

As you see, the Insync icon goes light gray in my system’s tray, and apparently there is no syncing going on (last sync logged was 1h ago, and Insync is making my CPU boil).

This is Insync v.

My computer runs Kubuntu 18.04.5 LTS:

If I quit Insync and then restart it, the same thing will happen after a few minutes.

I’m having the same problem with Insync 3.2.5 on Kubuntu 20.04, it uses a ton of CPU and is stuck on “Scanning…”

This is still not working on v. .

Hi all-- could you send your logs.db and out.txt files to with the link to this post?

Sorry, I removed it yesterday it and re-installed v.
So far, syncing looks OK.
