On-the-fly setting not working

In my google drive setting , I enable “on-the-fly setting” and disable “background uploading” , but it seems netdrive still copy the file I upload to the cache disk first , then upload to the cloud .

I can see the file in the cache location and I can see upload prgress in the uploading panel of Netdrive.

How could I upload to cloud directly without pass to cache first ?

By the way if I enable both function (background upload and on the fly) at the same time , what is the upload behavior Netdrive will take ? and what if I disable all of them ?



If you want to copy files without using cache, you should turn on “on-the-fly” option.
However, it only applies when copying files with Explorer.

If you keep the explorer open while copying, the cache can be created because the explorer will often request to read other files.


I hava already turn on “on-the-fly” option .

And I am sure the cache still has the copy item , I had already look into it . The file in the cache folder is exactly the same with the file I am uploading not from other read request .


I checked it.

I attach a captured image and a movie file I tested.

If your issue persists, attach debug log files to figure out what happened.

After setting the log level to VERBOSE, please reproduce the problem and send us the debug log file :

There is no credential information in the log files.


thanks for reply

I use the xplorer2 to manage my files and using the copy function it provide . Is this the reason the copy file operation still pass to cache disk ?

Copying with any application other than Explorer is not supported.

Because we don’t know the inner workings of the application.


Thanks for your reply. I have one more question here :

If netdrive can make the copy operation of any application is go through with cache disk upload in the background by default , why netdrive can not make “on-the-fly” is the default copy operation for all application ?

Good question!

Because there is no guarantee that the offset and length of the write operations are requested sequentially.

Also, using the cache rather than the on-the-fly option makes the application(explorer) respond faster.
