  1. Why is amazon cloud drive so slow?

    I have a 155 Mbit connection, with 17mbit up. Listing Amazon Cloud Drive folders in ACD takes about a minute, thumbnails take another 2-3 minutes.. right clicking an option takes about a minute for right click menu to show up. opening files takes about 1-3 minutes. everything is so slow. Why can't netdrive cache the full listing of files and thumbnails to speed this up? It is basically unusable.

              • Airdrive on android 6.0.1

                I am willing to pay for Netdrive 2 but then it should work with Airdrive.
                Now Airdrive (0.9.26) doesn't automatically connect under Android 6.0.1 on my Nexus 6 as it should when I read the instructions in Airdrive.
                Airdrive doesn't show in the list of connections in Netdrive.

                • Connect to a drive?

                  I've had netdrive for a month. After a recent restart suddenly it fails to mount any drives regardless of host. FTP, Amazon Cloud, Google Drive, etc. Restarting the app didn't fix the issue. Uninstall didn't fix the issue. Changing drive type to local from network and back did nothing.

                  • increase speed!

                    When I use netdrive to put files to Amazon clouddrive the max speed is about 200KB/sec. When I use the Amazon app the speed is about 16MB/sec. That's a big diff!

                    Please increase performance!

                        • Preserve timestamps on OneDrive or ACD?

                          I'd like to use something like rsync or robocopy to back up to either OneDrive or ACD. But both of these services (perhaps due to access via WebDAV) don't preserve timestamps. That both messes up the algorithms and loses important (to me) metadata. Is there any way to get these services to preserve the timestamps?

                              When I try to connect Netdrive to my Google Drive Account, the connect button changes colour from green to orange and the caption changes to "connecting" (I have set up the connection to my Google Drive account in the pop-up window that appears). And Netdrive stays like that and never actually connects. It used to work OK when I first installed Netdrive. What can I do to make it connect again.

                              • How to allow netdrive through https proxy?

                                Hello!
                                I am trying to run netdrive behind a transparent https proxy.
                                When I try to add a google drive account I get a connection error.
                                Is it possible to get a list of IP's that the proxy should ignore?

                                    Does this product allow for an upload seed from local computer to Google drive?
