I have a question / bug / change request for Rclone.
I use the copy command on Google Drive like this for example:
rclone copy “C:\Upload” “GoogleDrive:Folder/Subfolder” --stats 10s
“C:\Upload” only contains a few folders which I want to upload to “GoogleDrive:Folder/Subfolder”
“GoogleDrive:Folder/Subfolder” already contains up to a few thousand folders from earlier uploads
My expected behaviour of rclone was, that it only checks if the folders/files from the source exist at the destination and then start transfering them.
The actual behaviour is, that “GoogleDrive:Folder/Subfolder” and all subfolders are scanned before the transfer starts, even if they dont exist in “C:\Upload”. This causes a delay of over 10 minutes before the first transfer starts.
I am wondering about this delay for a longer time now, but recently I noticed, that the unnecessary destination-checks are the source, because Rclone informed me about a duplicate file in a sub-sub-subfolder which only exists in the destination and should never have been scanned for this task.
I hope, you understand what Im trying to tell you. Here is a screenshot of my problem:
