From my experience Google drive is so slow when I am trying to work with thousand of small files for training.
I have a problem, I somehow mistakenly created 50 thousands small text files in my main Google drive directory and now I want to delete all of them. How can I do it?
Google web UI for Google drive (drive.google.com) is frustrating slow when you need to work with a lot of files.
Does anyone knows a good alternative interface to work with Google drive?
I did exactly that a few weeks ago
while working in colab.
You can mount your Google drive
to your colab data directory
from colab import drive
! rm -rf /content/gdrive/path/to/your/directory
Be careful to point to the correct directory.
I just forgot that I can use Linux commands in this way.
Stupidly spent 3 hours by manually selecting and deleting files through Google drive slow UI interface.
