Is there any way to limit the amount of traffic Google Drive uses? I'm syncing Drive's content, and it almost swallows the entire bandwidth. I can't use Internet during sync operation.

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

You can pause syncing, and you can limit the folders that get synced, but I do not see any way to limit bandwidth. (Something Dropbox can do.) –  Al E. Sep 7 '13 at 4:16
I guess there should be a workaround for this. Maybe another application that be installed to control the bandwidth of other installed applications. –  Saeed Neamati Sep 7 '13 at 8:46
If you use QOS you could give it a lower priority. However setup can be complex. –  cybernard Sep 7 '13 at 19:42
