hybridmount as temporary offline solution possible? (and for teamdrives)

Post by macfuchs » Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:23 pm

hi,

we use google drives (and teamdrives), we search for a solution, where we can still access all of our data, if the internet connection goes down for several hours.

is hybridmount a solution for this? the local caching feature sounds great, but I can't find any information, if we can mirror all our google drives locally, so we can use them in case of internet problems.

and teamdrives are still a problem or is it now possible to connect with a qnap?
(we don't have a qnap for now, so we can't test it)

many thanks,

ferdinand

I'm sure you tried googling Hybridmount featues.

Sounds like you need Cloud Link, Hybridmount files are only available if they have previously been opened/saved.

If they are still offline "stub" files and the internet is off, they will not be accessible.

hi storageman,

thank you for your answer.

do you really mean cloud link? that looks rather like a solution to connect from outside our network to a qnap and not a cloud-sync-solution.

cheers, ferdinand

Yes not cloud link
Have at look at differences between Hybridmoumt and VJBOD

Hybridmount seems way to go, more importantly do u not want to fix internet issue?

hi storageman,

hybridmount seems to be pretty new:

unfortunately hybridmount doesn't mirror the whole googledrive, only files, that you open.

we have two internet-lines, but we think about the absolute worst case:
- both internet-connections are down
- google has a problem

yes, both cases probably will never happen, but murphy’s law..

cheers, ferdinand
