I just started working with Google Drive for Desktop and Cubase 11 - and now problems have started popping up.
I use “Google Drive for Desktop”, which syncs my Cubase projects folder to my Google Drive folder. This seems to work just fine. All my data is backed up automatically as I work and no problems seem to occur (except for when I record something and then delete it again immediately if I don’t like the take - this seems to create some sort of hiccup and Google Drive pops up with a message saying something like: “the file has been removed before it could be synced to Google Drive”. No biggie really).
But here’s the kicker: I work on two different (but identical) setups: one at work at the office and one in my home studio. I move projects between the two computers via Google Drive and now my Cubase projects are acting up. When I try to open projects I created in my home studio on my workplace computer, it loads fine, but Massive X doesn’t load the presets I’ve used and just loads with the “init”-preset and none of my Kontakt instances load the libraries. There are no error messages popping up or anything. Things just don’t load as they should.
I just recently started using this automated backup system. Before this, I manually dragged the projects to my Google Drive and it worked like a charm (but it obviously had some flaws: etc. if I forgot to copy the projects to Google Drive at the end of a long workday at the office, I wouldn’t have access to them at my home studio when I got home. Plus, when I DID do it manually I would have to wait up to 30 minutes before it finished uploading all the data because it hadn’t been uploading it as it was being created).
Has anyone experienced the same behavior when using Google Drive For Desktop? Or perhaps you can point me in a direction to where to look for some weird setting that I need to tweak for this to work?
