Does the command ll (ls -la) /mnt/gdrive and ll (ls -la) /mnt/tdrive returns something?

Im having a similar problem on a new install of v8, even tried the beta to see if there was a fix.

When I get to the point to deploy pgmove I get this error:

Same issue as above - empty folders with 8.0.16 and no error noticed, upgraded to 8.0.18 and noticed the above fatal error. sunionfs also reads 'not found/ dead', movies are seen in /mnt/gdrive/movies only.

Has this issue returned?

I have a fresh build (also on hetzner) and my unionfs folder is empty.

I attempted to upgrade to v8.6base to see if that would fix the issue but it hasn't.

I noticed it was empty because i started to investigate why my /mnt/downloads/nzbget folder was filling up.

I've had ~200 movies migrate over to tcrypt however, this appears to have stopped now and movies are no longer uploading to google.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey, I also seem to be having this issue. I rechecked my remove paths for sonarr, but nothing is being sent to my gdrive. Instead it's downloading, then filling up the limited space on the VPS until it refuses to continue.

It technically just does not occur by itself. You need to check your keys, api, and see if your mounts are up. You need to check their logs and see what’s going on and conduct a test by dropping a dummy file in /mnt/move/ please open a new thread; this is dated.
