They do say they will be migrating existing clients over so I hope they keep the storage as is. Wow what a disappointment :(

Apparently shared drives are still unlimited - so have your main account as is and create a shared drive for hoarding

Unless I read wrong?

Here is a video on how to use Colab servers to move torrents to gdrive.

Works well and it's free but they limit you to 108GB storage on the google instance but other than that it works :)

I've noticed that traffic now goes to France or The Netherlands vis Google transit where it used to end in JHB. Speeds are still pretty good.

I also managed to get a 5TB Onedrive account for cheap. Very nice although uploads to Onedrive is slow streaming downloading from it is pretty fast and it's also all local. :)

Had one before. Did not try that. I just play it directly from the drive. Much better local traffic so no buffering.

Hetzner peers with some ISPs at DE-CIX if they have a presence at that exchange however it's still about 180ms or so away.
