I'm trying to set up a Mac to auto sync pictures and videos already available on the Mac with Google+, mostly because they allow an unlimited amount of photos and videos to be uploaded as long as they are downsized to X amount of pixels, which is fine by me (edit: I'll also accept suggestions on other services to use as a resolution to this problem, as long as they also allow unlimited storage for videos and images).
So I have installed the software, it seemingly works fine as pictures and videos are indeed showing up in Google+, but two things are worrying me.
- When I click the icon in the task bar, it tells me that there is a total of 3000 or so items to backup. However, it consistently stops at random numbers. This time, it has stopped at around 1400/3000. It stops at different times, which brings me to:
- Every time I restart the application, for example by restarting or logging out, the counter "resets". It starts counting from 0 up to 3000, slowly, which indicates to me that it doesn't understand that a lot of these things are already uploaded. It then freezes at some other random number.
I have tried running the app both via Wi-Fi and via Ethernet (with Wi-Fi shut off, to be sure), but this doesn't seem to affect the end result at all.
So where do I go from here? Googling for troubleshooting steps have proven useless, are there any logs I can look at or any verbose way (command line?) of running this application to try and figure out what is going on?
Thank you in advance!
Update: Taking a hint from this post I have tried disabling the resizing functionality, I will report back if this allows the backup to proceed beyond X of 3000.
