Hello community! I am new here, cool to be around.
I have recently sat up my own gsuite and wanted to utilize the benefit of unlimited google drive storage. I am super happy i bumped into restic + rclone to help me take snapshots of my files, and upload them encrypted to google drive. I am also super happy that you that develop and maintain the project, ended up to not discouraging people from using google drive.
I am aware that Google does have some rate limits on their uploads. 750 GB / day, max 2 concurrent uploads etc. For me, it’s just fine.
But, I notice some really slow processing when I try to list existing snapshots in my repo. I have around 1.7 TB with files backed up, and
restic -r [repo] snapshots takes 25-30 minutes to load for me.
Are there any ways I can speed up the listing? I also notice that making new snapshots takes a lot of time. Does it scan through all files once before it starts the process of backing up? Can I configure something to make it go a bit quicker?
Thanks for your help.
