I’ve just installed E/ OS onto my Samsung Galaxy S9 just a few hrs ago, but I’ve found something very unusual happen to do with the E /Drive app seemingly using lots of network data according to my app data usage meter - so far it has used 1.95GB on my wifi connection and 2.65GB on my mobile data connection these last few hours prior to me shutting off network access in settings for /e/ Drive after noticing this .I have attached screenshots to this post to confirm. I first noticed this activity when I got an alert saying I had used 2GB of my mobile data which was what prompted me to look into what activity was using so much data on my phone.
At first thought the e cloud is syncing my newly transferred photos and documents (about 6GB worth) following the new e os install I’ve done - as I read some others here saying that is a usual thing E OS via E/ Cloud does - but when I log into my newly created E Cloud account which was created when I set up /E/ OS on my phone at https://ecloud.global/ where I assume that data would have been stored/synced - it just shows that there is only 10Kb of 1GB on the e cloud account currently so it doesn’t seem to be there ( visible in the screenshots link below).
This has raised alarm bells to me wondering where was this data being uploaded to, and what data is it exactly that is being uploaded via /e/Drive. If the transferred data from my backup is being uploaded to the E Cloud or /E/ Drive - which app data usage and network activity certainly suggests - where exactly is it going to? Where is it - presuming it is, and why is it uploading well over 3GB of data if the default amount for a free unpaid E cloud account is 1GB? In addition, as soon as I toggled off network access for the /e/ Drive app, straight away there was no longer any highly intensive uploading happening on my network traffic monitor confirming /e/ Drive was the suspect of the uploads.
I hope someone here can ease my concerns as to what exactly is going on as I’m quite baffled with this very odd uploading activity coming from the /e/ Drive app.
My Device information I have posted below - and I have also linked screenshots indicating the app data usage on both Wifi and Mobile Data as well as network upload activity and usage amount through E Cloud.
