    Hi Friends,

    I have an Android phone (Samsung Galaxy 4 mini) connected to my Google Drive account from which I upload pictures taken on my phone to Google Drive so I can use them elsewhere.

    Several days ago, I did a data-dump in which I uploaded 120 image files. The files successfully transferred to Google Drive into the correct folder. However, my Notifications panel for my phone indicates that I am still trying to upload 120 images.

    I cannot upload additional images that I took - they are still stuck in the queue.

    I went to my device's Apps > settings > Accounts page and removed my google account, and then added it again. This should have disconnected the sync process.

    However, the Notifications page still says that it is trying to upload 120 files (I have the upload set only to be performed on a wifi connection, and I am currently on our wifi.) I seem to be stuck in an endless loop.

    What can I do to kill the process?

    Regards.

    Welcome to Android Central!

    First, go to Settings>Accounts-Google>[your Google account], and uncheck Google+ Uploads, then check it again.

    If that doesn't help, then go to your App Manager, select Google+, and Clear Cache/Clear Data, then Force Stop. Now open it again.

    If that doesn't help, then try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition, which won't erase any personal data: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    Thank you very much. I didn't find it in quite the way you described, but force-stopping Google+ and clearing the cache data was the trick. I appreciate the time you took to reply.

    I just had to do the same thing with my Galaxy S5, and this solution helped me figure it out.

    For me, it wasn't the Google+ app that I had to clear cache / clear data / force stop, but the Drive app. After I did that, the upload went away.

    Thanks!

    I ended up having to force stop and disable Chrome Drive as well, but that did the trick. Thanks for the info!

    I have an s5 and it's doing the same thing. I've tried doing everything on this list and it still won't stop. I've cleared the cached data, on both google+ and drive, and force stopped both apps, disconnected from sync entirely, and every time I do it simply restarts itself. I'm going nuts. How do I stop this? I need my drive account.

    The only solution that worked for me...

    • Download and install AppMgr III https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....gphone.app2sd
    • This will allow you access to "Goggle Drive" >app info
    • Force stop, >clear data, >clear cache
    • If you have Goggle+ installed, repeat for "Goggle+" >app info
    • Go to settings, >account, >goggle, >select your account, >disable Drive, >Goggle+, and re-enable the sync.
    • Restart Goggle Drive.

    You should be fine.

    That was it! I cleared the cache for Drive and when I did the Force Stop I saw the Drive Icon in my Notification Bar disappear. Thank You, I was getting real worried about it. You're the Best!

    Solution
    Just go to the app info of the app (Apps>Google Drive) then delete all the used storage on the device (Click on Storage>Clear Storage). Since your files haven't been uploaded they are stil on your device and they are located in the files of Drive. Clearing cache won't solve this *Clear Storage* is the right way. This method will only delete the files that you where trying to upload.

    If none of the above suggestions work for you, I found this article useful:
