I am new to rclone.
I do not know how to sync/download a public folder from box.com.
I managed to config rclone on a headless machine, but only have access to my own box files.
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.16.3
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none
The command you were trying to run
rclone ls box: # shows my box files

you might try to create a http remote
Thanks for this prompt response.
Unfortunately, I am still stuck, and don't manage to download the public Box folder
rclone copyurl https_app_box_com/s/<folder_id> ./
but it complains that./` is a folder.

I tried with
rclone config using the public address
rclone ls remote: does not list anything.
Thanks again for your help,
(ps: Note that, as a new user, I can't add urls to my posts, hence the http_apps_com)
it is a common problem, as it seems that he box.com shared folder is not a typical website, like
there might be a workaround, tho as i do not use box, i would not know.
have you searched the forum, for example
Thanks for the link.
Yes, I have tried to set up
root_folder_id with the
<folder_id> from the url
https://app. box. com/s/<folder_id> but a
rclone ls remote: results in 404 error
The data is public, and I am trying to make an automated script do get anyone to easily download it, so asking the original account owner to add each user as a collaborator/editor/etc is not really an option.
