Allow downloads/uploads only between a certain time using copy command

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm currently doing a large backup and i have more bandwidth available from 01:00 am to 06:00 am.
i'd like to know how can i allow downloads/uploads only between this time.
pause = when it's not between this time 01:00 to 06:00
unpause = when it's between this time 01:00 to 06:00

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.57.0

  • os/version: ubuntu 18.04 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 4.15.0-166-generic (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy -v --stats 5s /storage/movies dropbox:/movies

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = dropbox
client_id = *REDACTED*
client_secret = *REDACTED*
token = {"access_token":"REDACTED","token_type":"bearer","refresh_token":"REDACTED","expiry":"2022-01-13T00:35:22.620029666-03:00"}
