Import existing series from Google Drive access for Sonarr/Radarr?

Posted July 4th, 2019    341   2   Google drive sonarr radarr

Is it possible to setup READ ONLY access for our mounted Google Drive (not for downloading directly to) to import existing series on disk?

I would love something like this.


Any reply on this question?


Unfortunately this is not possible. The Google Drive mount is only available in Plex.
You have to understand that Sonarr was not built to read from remote drives. So while you are able to "fool" sonarr with a mounted remote drive, the performance impact is huge causing extreme load to servers and most importantly the google api that might cause a ban. The correct way for this to be handled, is for Sonarr to develop a plugin to read from google drive, through the google API.

Tip: You can enable the "Ignore Deleted Episodes" setting in Sonarr and "Unmonitor Deleted Movies" in Radarr. This way all files that are moved to Google Drive will be marked as unmonitored and won't be downloaded again.

You will have to enable the "Advanced Settings" toggle to see those settings.
