Linux Mint 20.1, Dropbox daemon 123.3.4825, cli version 2020.03.04, downloaded today
I'm trying to sync a DB folder that runs to about 500g. I have TWO other installations of this folder, one on a Mac, one on another Linux box, connected by CAT6 on the LAN. LAN sync is ENABLED, and the other two machines are up to date.
Yet, this new install is hogging my bandwidth so badly that even DNS lookups on any machine fail, communication timeouts and failures are common, connections break, etc. I can't get anything at all done if it involves connections over the wire.
It appears, by the time remaining indicator (about 40 hours) that it's downloading the folder from the sky, not from localnet. The only solution I've found is to turn on the bandwidth throttle, but that obviously slows down the load even more.
Selective Sync is NOT the right solution here. For reasons, I need the whole folder on localhost. I have it moved onto a drive with plenty of space; this is a speed issue, not a space issue.
What's the deal here? It shouldn't take 40+ hours to load 500g over a gigabit pipe.
