I have commented elsewhere that I am in the process of migrating from Dropbox to Google Drive, and have about 215,000 files - about 600gb - of data I need to push into G Drive.
I had erroneously assumed that this would be as simple as downloading my dropbox files to my local machine, then moving the folders into my g drive folders and syncing via Insync.
The speed of the transfer is completely untenable, and I am now stuck with all of my files sitting in a folder on a local machine, and not syncing up at the speed I need them to.
I ran a test by connecting to my G Drive with Transmit (ftp client, and dropped a 1gb file in, and it took less than 30 min to upload. Which should mean, at that speed, I should be able to move my entire structure over to G Drive in a few days.
I want to stop syncing w Insync, but am concerned because now my local and remote folders are completely out of sync. Some remote folders are correctly populated, and some local folders are correctly populate - and I have no way of determining which is which.
So what do I do? If I stop the Isync process, then I will have a combination of local and remote files, and if I move to the native G Suite application, or my ftp client, I will still not be able to determine what needs to be uploaded, and what needs to be downloaded.
I’m sure there’s a resolution to this, but from where I’m sitting right now, it seems as if I might be stuck with just waiting for the rest of the year for Insync to get all of my files where the belong.
