I'm trying to upload files from my phone, because it's broken and i have to change it soon.
I'm uploading many files, but they actually are not uploading: it's two days that every file is in a "waiting to upload" state . How do I maximize the priority of google drive application? because I have to change my phone, and i would like to upload my file with the maximum priority
(I apologize for my English)

Why has this been sitting idle for over a month with no answers? This is a common problem. Is it just because no one at G has an answer other than "reset everything and pray?" I only just managed to get something moving in the general direction of G Drive by repeatedly closing and reloading it (and Backup & sync) and right now it looks like it's going to take 6 hours to copy 2mb in 12 files. Could you just post the address of your server farm so we could speed things up by mailing you floppy discs?

Seriously, have the same issue. Have 2TB of space but can't upload a 2gb file. They should prorate their users when their tech doesn't work!

I am having the same problem.   Suddenly, my photos on my Android phone will not upload.  I have uploaded them many, many times in the past, but suddenly this week, despite doing the same uploading process I always do, and despite the fact that my phone says the photos are being uploaded, they are no appearing in my google drive folders.

Same here. I'm paying for 2TB and was able to upload 800Gb in about 1 week.  Now uploads just hang with no progress on the reported '880,000 hours 10 minutes remaining'. I'm not expecting a response from Google, but am posting so potential customers know that the service isn't great.

I think I just found a way that works for me... I've been having the same issue as all of you guys: can't upload any file whether it is from my phone or PC to GD. Though I just realised that I had no problem DL files that have been sent to me through email... It works for small files obviously but it works... Hope this can help some of you.
