Checking integrity AFTER a file transfer without separate command

Just curious if a file transfer is checked automatically after a transfer is complete or if a separate command (rclone check) should be ran afterward.

If there's currently no way to do this, it would make a good feature, maybe something like a --verify flag.

for many storage systems, the answer is yes.

you can test this yourself by copying a single file to the remote
for example, something like
rclone copy file.ext remote: -vv

in the debug output, would see something like

DEBUG : file.ext: Need to transfer - File not found at Destination
DEBUG : file.ext: md5 = d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e OK
INFO  : file.ext: Copied (new)

Is there any way to know in advance if it does so with the storage system I'm transferring to?

I'm performing an rclone transfer from an ext4 partition to "OneDrive For Business", which has had shaky support in the past due to it differing from OneDrive.

been using rclone with onedrive personal and business for years, never had an issue with checksums.

Sorry, you posted that like half a second before I replied. I'll check it out, thank you.

However, if I may make a suggestion regardless, maybe reclone should give the user a warning if it doesn't support after-transfer integrity checking.

start a new topic and pitch the feature to the forum.
