Adjust HiDrive Upload and Download Speed

You can adjust the upload and download speed of HiDrive synchronization to have as much bandwidth as possible for applications running in parallel, e.g. streaming. We will show you how.

Please Note

Demanding online services such as streaming video require as much bandwidth as possible. This will inevitably decrease the speed of HiDrive during simultaneous synchronization of your files and folders. Today's common bandwidths are usually equipped for this. However, the lower the bandwidth or the more extensive the synchronization, it can become an issue.

In this case, you can reduce the bandwidth for HiDrive in order to have more bandwidth available for other services. By default, HiDrive uses the maximum available bandwidth. Accordingly, however, when you reduce the bandwidth of HiDrive, your synchronization will take longer.
