Okay, no worries. I have to apologize since my English is well... Far from top notch. Let me rephrase the whole thing!
So I want to transfer a lot of large binary data from one Drive account to another. Using rclone you can do that so simply with the
rclone copy sourcemount:/encryptedfilename targetmount:/encryptedfilename however this way rclone downloads the stream to my computer while uploading the incoming data straight to the other machine. Therefore my computer acts as a middleware and because the rclone uploads have a 20 MB/s network limit from my experience, these files take a lot of time to migrate. And also the quota comes later but that's the least issue I care about now. Therefore the idea is simple. I already have these in one Drive folder. The web Drive offers a create shareable link for the file option which gives me a link that everyone can open. I assume rclone could generate these too and this way I could embed it to a script. But what I can do with these shared links? Well, also from web I could open that within the target account. Then there is an option to make a clone to my own storage. I would like to do that, make a copy. However that will still depend on the original source Drive file. It's like a symlink but between accounts, so if the original file gets removed, the target will lose access also. So that's why I'd like to make a copy of the freshly pasted binary inside the target account and remove the original "symlink" which points to the source Drive account.
I am sure the last step would be easy with rclone as I know it already supports displaying these files and therefore the copy will be easy, so let's make my questions clear...
Is there a way I can mass generate public share links using rclone? If I read it right, Drive API has support for this. And if yes, is there a way to get a "prettyfied" JSON output or anything I can parse easily from a script? It should only contain the created URL(s) for the files.
How would you go by copying an entire folder structure (only the directory tree, not the actual files) from one share to another? I hope rclone has something for that but this one can be actually solved by mounting both shares and a find + exec combination on directories should work...
This way I guess I can bypass the quota limit hitting also since I just moved a lot more than 1 TB by hand (manually) from the web.
It's a bit hacky but a real movement and not a complete reupload what I would like to achieve.
And last but not least, you can't imagine how thankful I am because of your quick responses and active presence in such stupid questions. The whole rclone project is a god's hand tool and I have never seen such a well moderated forum before like this one. And uhh, I know I require a lot of patience to handle and apologies for that!
