Am I right in thinking that the best way to check for the existence of a file or directory is to use
rclone size? Admittedly, I am unsure what my criteria are for 'best' but 'quick' is one of them.
I see that already there is an answer by ncw to this question, in this thread. However, the link in that answer seems partially broken - it leads to a page (this one) but not to a specific part of the page - and I could do with some further help. It seem one can run a
rclone rc command and then grep its output for the name one wants - but I do not know the syntax of the
rclone rc command.
PS: I wish all fora used software as good as the software used on this forum!
