Sync time too slow


Have had insync running for a few weeks now, and it’s either not synchronising files at all (until I force a manual refresh), or it’s taking hours. I need it to synchronise a lot faster than that.

How quickly should it be detecting and synchronising file changes, and can we modify that?

Running as a service on Windows Server, and also tested running as an app on Windows desktop. Synchronising a folder on a local server to Google Drive. Initial sync worked perfectly, it’s just the ongoing synchronising that’s an issue.


Hi @dinus,

Sorry for the trouble!

Could you go to this guide and refer to Step 5 under “How to start syncing your files”? It explains a certain setting that allows auto-syncing of incoming files.

Syncing file changes should take no more than a couple of minutes if your internet connection is stable and if the file size isn’t big. In case the issue still persists, please send your log files to with the link to this post. Thank you!
