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.) – ale 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

There is a bandwidth setting in Advanced tab, where you can limit download and/or upload bandwidth.


Make sure you are using the latest version.
