Plex Library Scan and GDrive

Posted November 13th, 2020    34   0  

What is the best way not to hit the API limit when linking plex to gdrive? I believe library scans can cause a temp API ban?

Just move your new, completed content (manually or via sonarr/radarr apps) to your local seedbox Plex subfolders and make sure to set your library interval scans to at least 12 hours or even a full day if you have a large library, in order to reduce the API calls.


I have my server set to scan manually. I scan once a week as I have added new content. If you use this method it's highly doubtful you'll get hit with the API ban.
