Can't finish download... Why?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm downloading a file, but it's hanging. Can I kill the process? Should I wait more? It's been here for hours.

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

╰─λ rclone --version
rclone v1.58.0

  • os/version: arch Soaring (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.17.1-zen1-1-zen (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.18
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: none

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


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

 ╰─λ rclone copy gdrive:Backups/Bare\ Metal/BeeLink.img . -P
Transferred:      238.475 GiB / 238.475 GiB, 100%, 0 B/s, ETA 0s
Transferred:            0 / 1, 0%
Elapsed time:   2h46m34.6s
 *                                   BeeLink.img:100% /238.475Gi, 0/s, 0s

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive

A log from the command with the -vv flag

It's a 256 GB file. I was hoping to get some advice before I cancel and start over with -vv


-- the debug log should answer your question
--- based on the remote you posted, you are not using a client id, and really should be.

I'm using a client ID, I just stripped it with the other secrets.

I wish I ran it with debug logs to find out what was happening. It ended up finishing another 1.5 hrs after I posted. Very strange.

What's the final location? Spinning HDD or something? It has to checksum the file I believe at the end of the process and I wonder if that's taking the time if it's a large file.

You can check for disk io with iotop or something.
