General Questions#

My files image files are on a mounted Google Drive, can I process them there?#

Maybe! We have had mixed success with processing images that are located on Google Drive and mounted on your local computer. If you find you are encountering errors such as FileExistsError (see #201) then please copy your files to a local drive on your computer for processing and then copy the results back to the network drive.
