Tips for Transferring Data to Google Drive

For Google Drive, there are "rates limits" on how much data and how many files a user can transfer in any 24 hour period. The following two tips can help to alleviate the restrictions from the rates limits:
  • Transfer a subfolder as a job. A user can submit 2-3 jobs at a time.
  • If the folder or subfolder contains a lot of small files, compress the folder or subfolders using zip or tar before the transfer.
