I post here, because I can’t seem to get my messages to the developers of pDrive, via Twitter, etc.
This is what I’m seeing when I try to upload a file (PDF) larger than 20 mb.
I can replicate it every single time with a 27 mb PDF file, either on google chrome browser or Brave browser.
As soon as I select the file, or drag it so it starts to upload, the memory on the tab, that floats at around 300 mb, then starts to increase to well beyond 1.5 GB
I have tested uploading the same file to Blackhole app and also to Envelop app, and it works perfectly.
But with pDrive, it either keeps consuming memory on the tab (process) until eventually starts swapping and then basically locking up the browser. Some times, I even have to reset the machine.
OS is Linux, and I’ve also seen comments from others (on twitter) with the same issue.
Not sure it’s a pDrive specific issue or a library issue, as I can also replicate the problem in xordrive app.
