Choosing the right dedupe mode for Google Drive

Hi there,

I am a bit unclear about the different dedupe modes:

What's the most recommendable one for usual use cases?

As far as I understand, rclone finds all duplicates with the same hashsum.

So, does it really matter which mode I choose?

Am I safe to just pick "skip" or am I potentially losing something?

How can dedupe be "largest"? If a file is larger, then it cannot have the same hashsum, can it?

I am bit confused. Sorry for the maybe very obvious question.


This detects any file with the same name in the same path. They being said, the options to rclone how to handle them non-interactively.
