Speed up uploading thousands of very small files
I have a local backup of my GMail made with gmvault. It's a folder with subfolders and files amounting to several hundred thousand files.
OneDrive stalls... my CPU starts working at 100% for several hours non-stop. I aborted it.
I decided to try and upload a single sub-folder with just 1000 files. After taking some minutes to process it, OneDrive started uploading them one by one, taking over 3 seconds per file. This makes it impossible for me to upload the GMail backup into OneDrive.
- Be able to cope with a folder of hundreds of thousands of files;
- Group small files and send them together to avoid unnecessary overhead.
