I’m using insync 3.8.2 on linux, with an gdrive account that contains lots of small (cache) files and a few big files.
All these files are created/deleted every day by some process outside of insync.
What happens most of the time is that insync seems stuck scanning/removing all the small files, all the while the green progress bars of the big files do not move at all, or very slowly.
I don’t understand the reasons:
- why is removing a 1000 files hogging 1500% of CPU power?
- if there is a legitimate reason for point 1), why is the downloading of files that were already started not progressing in the background?
I would think that downloading files first should be the priority.
