I’m using rclone for OneDrive for business on Ubuntu 18.04.
I have a question: how do I get access to my files when I’m offline? Is it possible to have an offline copy of your files, in the same way as the dropbox software works?
You can use
rclone copy or
rclone sync to copy the files locally - is that what you mean? Or do you mean when using
I added the remote directory as described in this link
so I guess I did a mount.
That won’t work offline alas…
So what is the procedure that I have to do to have a system that allows me to have the availability of offline files, like dropbox?
You’ll need to copy them to your computer which you can do with
rclone copy so something like
rclone copy yourremote:path /path/to/local/directory
/path/to/local/directory is not the mounted directory? Is another directory? Right?
If I want to keep synchronized
/path/to/local/directory I have to create a cronjob that keeps me running
rclone copy or better
Yes that is correct.
