I may have to change cloud providers and I am trying to think of the best way to migrate the data. I do not have access to high speed bandwidth at the moment.
I understand that rclone copy can not server side copy from one remote to another and that a "middle man" is required.
I was thinking I could purchase a VPS and run rclone copy thus using the bandwidth between the VPS and the new cloud provider.
My question: Can rclone copy the crypted data in tact from one remote to another? I do not want to download the data, decrypt it, re-encrypt it and then upload it again. Also, this method involves exposing my config file with passwords to the VPS which is not a good solution.
Assuming I am using the same crypt password and salt on both remotes, can rclone copy the encrypted files over in place using the copy (or another command)? This would be preferred as it uses the API of both remotes.
Also, is it possible to use setup rclone on the VPS and issue the command to it remotely, thus the config file stays safe on my computer?
If not, can anyone else suggest another solution? Webdav is available on both remotes however wedbav will not update file times so this solution will not work.
