I'm currently doing a regular copy between two google drive remotes, I am using copy so I don't delete anything on the destination just in case something goes wrong on the source. I manually run a dry run sync, check the logs and then run a sync every once and a while to process the delete operations.
I'm trying to work out if I can remove the manual sync step from this process safely using backupdir so deleted files are moved to another directory.
So I am running something like this:
rclone copy remote1:path remote2:path
And I'm thinking of doing this:
rclone sync remote1:path remote2:path --backup-dir=remote2:path_backup/%date%
The potential changes exceed the maximum transfer daily limit in google drive, so just want to check if it starts to fail because it hits the daily limit - the files in the destination aren't deleted until they are successfully moved into the backupdir?
