Hi! I need help:
Under Windows 10, I am using Cryptomator (1.6.5) over pCloud (3.11.8) using Dokany (1.3, via chocolatey).
My pCloud 2TB lifetime share is mounted as P:
I have a single vault P:\cryptomator-cpn that cryptomator mounts to Q:
Within the vault I created directory Q:\sync-silo\LW-U\
Then I used FreeFileSync to mirror my U: drive of 92 GB drive to Q:\sync-silo\LW-U
(With ADSL, i.e. 4000kilobit/s = 500KB/s upload.)
About 58000 directories and about 220000 files.
FreeFileSync terminated after about half a day.
Then the cryptomator Vault statistics showed idle for read and write.
However, for pCloud, it took another two days to report complete cloud file sync.
I unmounted/locked the cryptomator vault and waited the two days before doing anything else with the vault.
(On C: drive, for pCloud temp-space, there is and was enough amount space for the 92 GB of data that I added to my encrypted vault, it did not exceed the free space on the system partition.)
After pCloud sync, I wanted to look into the vault, but the directory Q:\sync-silo was empty.
No Q:\sync-silo\LW-U any more.
Still in P:\cryptomator-cpn\d\ there are 1024 directories worth of 92GB of stuff.
Health check via crytomator returend without fault.
Restarting the computer and reconnecting/remounting did not help.
(I would attach the health report. I would attach a debug log where I mounted the vault and accessed Q:\sync-silo\ with the explorer. But I get an error “Sorry, new users can not upload attachments.”)
What went wrong? Can I do something to fix it?
Is this an unusual set-up that I tried?
Am I overhelming the crytpo-cloud stack with 92 GB / 58000 directories / 220000 files?
Shouldn’t I use pCloud?
Should I sync less than 5 GB per Sync-Session (i.e. the pCloud cache size)?
Any advice on best practice for such drive mirrors would be appreciated!
