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.

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
