Config.cfg - Google Drive __EXCLUSIVE__

You can set custom options for Google Drive for desktop, including the default drive letter on Windows, the mount point on Apple macOS, the cache location, bandwidth limits, and proxy settings. These configurations can be set at the user or host level, and persist when Drive for desktop restarts. Admins can override user settings.

config.cfg - Google Drive

Download File:

Sets the limit on content cache size in kilobytes. The limit is capped at 20% of the available space on the hard drive (regardless of the setting value).The setting doesn't apply to files made available offline or files that are uploading. This setting is only available for admins, as an override or host-wide setting.

Windows: Set a mounted drive letter or a path on an existing drive. You can use an environment variable to specify the drive letter or customize the path (for example C:\Users\%USERNAME%\GoogleDrive).

The major advantage to using the connection string style syntax isthat it only applies to the remote, not to all the remotes of thattype of the command line. A common confusion is this attempt to copy afile shared on google drive to the normal drive which does notwork because the --drive-shared-with-me flag applies to both thesource and the destination.

Note that the connection string only affects the options of the immediatebackend. If for example gdriveCrypt is a crypt based on gdrive, then thefollowing command will not work as intended, becauseshared_with_me is ignored by the crypt backend:

These options are useful when developing or debugging rclone. Thereare also some more remote specific options which aren't documentedhere which are used for testing. These start with remote name e.g.--drive-test-option - see the docs for the remote in question.

However you can set this to restrict rclone to a specific folderhierarchy or to access data within the "Computers" tab on the driveweb interface (where files from Google's Backup and Sync desktopprogram go).

In order to do this you will have to find the Folder ID of thedirectory you wish rclone to display. This will be the last segmentof the URL when you open the relevant folder in the drive webinterface.

When rclone downloads a Google doc it chooses a format to downloaddepending upon the --drive-export-formats setting.By default the export formats are docx,xlsx,pptx,svg which are asensible default for an editable document.

When importing files into Google Drive, rclone will convert allfiles with an extension in --drive-import-formats to theirassociated document type.rclone will not convert any files by default, since the conversionis lossy process.

This limitation can be disabled by specifying --drive-allow-import-name-change.When using this flag, rclone can convert multiple files types resultingin the same document type at once, e.g. with --drive-import-formats docx,odt,txt,all files having these extension would result in a document represented as a docx file.This brings the additional risk of overwriting a document, if multiple fileshave the same stem. Many rclone operations will not handle this name changein any way. They assume an equal name when copying files and might copy thefile again or delete them when the name changes.

Google documents can also be exported as link files. These files willopen a browser window for the Google Docs website of that documentwhen opened. The link file extension has to be specified as a--drive-export-formats parameter. They will match all availableGoogle Documents.

When uploading to your drive all files will be overwritten unless theyhaven't been modified since their creation. And the inverse will occurwhile downloading. This side effect can be avoided by using the"--checksum" flag.

This feature was implemented to retain photos capture date as recordedby google photos. You will first need to check the "Create a GooglePhotos folder" option in your google drive settings. You can then copyor move the photos locally and use the date the image was taken(created) set as the modification date.

This can be useful if you wish to do a server-side copy between twodifferent Google drives. Note that this isn't enabled by defaultbecause it isn't easy to tell if it will work between any twoconfigurations.

There is currently an unsolved issue with the google drive backend andHTTP/2. HTTP/2 is therefore disabled by default for the drive backendbut can be re-enabled here. When the issue is solved this flag willbe removed.

In the first example this creates a shortcut from the "source_item"which can be a file or a directory to the "destination_shortcut". The"source_item" and the "destination_shortcut" should be relative pathsfrom "drive:"

In the second example this creates a shortcut from the "source_item"relative to "drive:" to the "destination_shortcut" relative to"drive2:". This may fail with a permission error if the userauthenticated with "drive2:" can't read files from "drive:".

Adding this to the rclone config file will cause those team drives tobe accessible with the aliases shown. Any illegal characters will besubstituted with "_" and duplicate names will have numbers suffixed.It will also add a remote called AllDrives which shows all the shareddrives combined into one directory tree.

This can also be caused by a delay/caching on google drive's end whencomparing directory listings. Specifically with team drives used incombination with --fast-list. Files that were uploaded recently maynot appear on the directory list sent to rclone when using --fast-list.

When you use rclone with Google drive in its default configuration youare using rclone's client_id. This is shared between all the rcloneusers. There is a global rate limit on the number of queries persecond that each client_id can do set by Google. rclone already has ahigh quota and I will continue to make sure it is high enough bycontacting Google.

If you already configured an "Oauth Consent Screen", then skipto the next step; if not, click on "CONFIGURE CONSENT SCREEN" button(near the top right corner of the right panel), then select "External"and click on "CREATE"; on the next screen, enter an "Application name"("rclone" is OK); enter "User Support Email" (your own email is OK);enter "Developer Contact Email" (your own email is OK); then click on"Save" (all other data is optional). You will also have to add some scopes,including .../auth/docs and .../auth/drive in order to be able to edit,create and delete files with RClone. You may also want to include the../auth/drive.metadata.readonly scope. After adding scopes, click"Save and continue" to add test users. Be sure to add your own account tothe test users. Once you've added yourself as a test user and saved thechanges, click again on "Credentials" on the left panel to go back tothe "Credentials" screen.

(If you selected "External" at Step 5 continue to Step 9.If you chose "Internal" you don't need to publish and can skip straight toStep 10 but your destination drive must be part of the same Google Workspace.)

You will notice both your My Drive and Shared Folders are inside and can open either one.Note: the files in your G: drive are not stored on your computer. They will be streamed from Google's cloud and so you will need internet access to interact with them. It will cache whatever file you are working with on your computer, and should you lose connection, it will attempt to resync any changes made afterward. If you are using Google Docs in Chrome, you can get an extension that enables you to work offline on files.

Here you can change the drive letter to something other than G or switch accounts if want to access another google account's drive. There are few other settings but as Google adds features, there will be more options in here.

Once Google Drive for Desktop is setup, you can copy any files over from your computer to the drive. It's as simple as dragging the folder you want copied, into the folder you want inside your G: Drive.

A copy of your files will now be on your hard drive and on your Google Drive. However, these files will not sync. If you make changes to a file in your pc's document folder, it will not change on the Google Drive, or vice versa. That is why this is most useful for a quick backup before a re-image or changing computers. Once your new or re-imaged computer is setup and Google Drive is installed, you can copy files you want back from the Google Drive to the PC.

After you copy all the files you want to your G: Drive and they have finished transferring, you can then delete the files from your computer. You would then work with files from the G: Drive then on. Note: You should verify the files you wanted copied are finished transferring and that you are able to open/work with them before deleting the files from your hard drive (see step 5 above).

Having a copy of your files on both your computer and Google Drive, will allow you to recover or use your files from another computer/device in case you no longer have access to the original computer due to damage or loss. This also works well when re-imaging your computer or switching to a new one. However, it does not provide a backup in the case you accidentally erase a file that you have changed in one drive but not the other--it would only give access to the older version of the file. If you used Google Drive to free up disk space on your hard drive, deleting the copies on your PC, you will only have the version on Google Drive. If you delete it or make changes to it in Google Drive and want to revert, there is no way to do that unless a Google Doc had version tracking. We recommend you also use a backup drive with its provided backup software or a third-party backup solution since those backups are meant to cover just about any issue.

It successfully printed the filenames in my personal drive. Is it accessing shared folders as well as what's under "my drive"?I do want to copy everything from the account rather than just the shared folder, if possible. 041b061a72
