Upload Speed Netdrive

I use Netdrive to upload a large amount of files on a server. Even with the options Use on-the-fly uploading in Explorer and Always retrieve file list from server the software uses the cache folder and even though I have a dedicated link with 250MB / S internet speed, the upload rates are low. Is there a way for netdrive to upload files at the speed of my dedicated link?

Dear fabianorcastro,

What protocol type do you use?
If you’re using Google Drive, using a custom API can speed things up.


I am using webdav protocolo.

Dear fabianorcastro,

As you know, NetDrive doesn’t transfer the file directly to server.
It will be slower than a normal client program, because an explorer or a finder must make a request before sending through NetDrive.

To explain briefly the process of Netdrive,

A normal client :

  1. upload or download command
  2. the client transfer the file to the server.

NetDrive :

  1. shell(explorer or finder) copy command.
  2. The shell writes part of the file to the buffer.
  3. NetDrive transfer the buffer written by the shell.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the shell writes to the buffer for the entire file.

Because NetDrive is a filesystem, NetDrive cannot transfer files by itself.
But we’re constantly working to improve performance.
