So instead of using your mail account, you use a service account to create your mount. What I did is rename some of the service account files to the mount they represent. You can put them in a different folder. Like sa_gdrive_media.json for your media mount. So for this you will have to not put in the path to the folder with the service account, but to the exact folder. Which you did in your last post. By seperating this you will also not use these SA's for your upload script, seperating any potential API bans. The upload script will pick the first of the service accounts. Then when it finishes because it hits the 750gb api limit it will stop. That's why you put it on a cron job so it will start again with service account 2 until that one hits the api limit. And so on. Just so you understand, the script doesn't just keep running through all your service accounts. You will have to restart it through a cron job. About moving your current folder to your teamdrive. It depends whether the files are encrypted the same as your new team drive mount. So with the same password and salt. If that is the case you can just drag the whole folder from your gdrive to your team drive from the Google Drive website. Saves a lot of time waiting for rclone transfers to finish. You can even do this to transfer to another account. The encryption has to be identical though. I think that I might still not understand fully how to set it up then. I get how it works now (I think) but am not sure if I did set it up correctly now. I think that I did use a service account to create the mount. I noticed that I didn't have to login to Google to verify myself when creating these mount points. Is this mount correct?; The service account file is the first file in the folder: I assume that when the upload reaches 750gb, it shuts itself down, and like you said, the next time it starts from a cron job, it will use the second account? Or do I have something setup wrong and need to change things? Sorry for asking so many questions. I am trying but am not that good when it comes to new things like these. EDIT: I realised that I didn't change any parameters in the upload script for the service accounts: I guess that I need to change these as well. I will do that now: Edited October 22, 2022 by workermaster Quote Link to comment
