Copy Folder from Google Drive using Folder ID

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have read access over a Google Drive folder and I wish to copy it to mine.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

❯ rclone version
rclone v1.56.0
- os/version: debian bullseye/sid (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.11.0-7620-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.16.5
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone -P copy --drive-root-folder-id xxxxxxxx --drive-server-side-across-configs mydrive: mydrive:000/

A log from the command with the -vv flag

2021-08-20 12:16:01 ERROR : <FILENAME.EXT>: Failed to copy: failed to make directory: googleapi: Error 403: Insufficient permissions for the specified parent., insufficientParentPermissions

But I already have read access over the <FILENAME.EXT>. Why am I getting insufficientParentPermissions?

To use server side, you need permissions on both sides. Try without server side.
