(Earlier: bein’ unable to set up this connection earlier I’ve just used Raidrive to emulate target dtorage. But Raidrive stopped its free upload service to the shares google disk. So, I’ve got to set up this connection).
There are 2 ways to make it work:
- Using the google drive client. It sets the LOCAL drive with its own letter so I supposed it will work easily (no it didn’t)
- Using the built-in Duplicati tool
The result is:
Of course, I need the backup bein’ saved in the cloud storage ONLY, not at my PC, so the backup folder in the Google Drive client is set to “cloud only”. And this way doesn’t work due to the Duplicati’s strange manneer to write the whole backup into c:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\gmail\ directory (in my case) without (before) any sign of upload. My TMP and TEMP system folders are set to drive D: and Duplicati “sees” that when I open additional parameter “tempdir”. I tried to switch the syncronous upload on but this also did’t give any result.
So, when I try to backup my 134GB .vhd to the gdrive Duplicati just reports “lack of free space” after the C: dick is full and that’s all.
When trying to connect to the shared drive using its link obtained via web interface RMB menu, Duplicati asks for AuthID. Limited or Full access AuthID may I insert – doesn’t matter: Duplicati just returns the same request after the connetction re-try. I also tried to switch to the 2-factor ID but with the same result.
The question is: is there a user’s manual or “howto”? Or maybe somebody just could write how EXACTLY one can connect to the google shared drive? Both ways are welcome.
