Copy files with the same name

I am copying files on different folders from Windows server to Google Drive. I want to have a flag that if any files are found with same name it it will add a number to the file name, not updating the file.

I am using the following command now:

rclone copy D:\Users\user\ des: --drive-impersonate user@domain --log-file rclone/logs/log.log -vv -P

That doesn't exist.

You can use --backup-dir perhaps or versioning perhaps with whatever remote you are using.

I haven't tried and @Animosity022 is usually right, but perhaps --suffix=someTIMESTAMP could do the trick for you:
