Can you specify to transfer folder itself, not its contents?

rclone move remote1:folder1 remote2:folder2 will copy contents of folder1 to folder2.

Is there a way to say that you want to move folder1 itself into folder2 (with its contents)?

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
scope = drive
token = 
root_folder_id = 
team_drive = 

The command you were trying to run

rclone move remote1:folder1 remote2:folder2

Which cloud storage system are you using?

Google Drive

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

rclone v1.62.2
- os/version: arch "rolling" (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 6.3.4-arch2-1 (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.20.4
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: none

A log from the command with the -vv flag


and if something does not work - which always is possible - please provide all details

Apologies for skipping the template, I've added all the details just now (except for output from -vv command as it contains a lot of personal information - please let me know if it's needed as well and I will add it).

Thank you mentioning the documentation, but are you saying that the command above should transfer folder? On my system it moved the contents of the folder instead. Is it not supposed to do that?

rclone move remote1:folder1 remote2:folder2/folder1 --dry-run
