Can't copy a specific folder

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have a specific folder called music4, that folder is full of folders and files. but I cannot get it to download locally using rclone copy !

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

rclone v1.60.0

  • os/version: slackware 15.0+ (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.19.17-Unraid (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

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

Google drive

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

rclone copy music4 /mnt/user/MURRAY/Music/ --progress --transfers=16 -vv --check-first

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

[gdrive]
type = drive
client_id = XXX.apps.googleusercontent.com
client_secret = XXXX
scope = drive
token = {"access_token":"XXX","expiry":"2022-11-13T15:54:11.543684448+01:00"}
team_drive =

[gcrypted]
type = crypt
remote = gdrive:gdrive-crypted
password = XXX
password2 = XXX

Here is what ncdu states if I query this folder (mounted through rclone mount) :slight_smile:

Total disk usage: 0.0 B Apparent size: 0.0 B Items: 4999

Its like if these files were just....not taking any space :smiley:

Any clue ? This is really the only folder that actually has that issue.

Are you using a rclone mount as well?

Is that a mount? If so, what's the command?

You don't need to copy from a mount as you can interact with the remote directly.
