Copy inside mount filesystem

If I made a copy inside a rclone mount shouldn’t it be server side copy? It lasts a bit and I see download bandwith so it is not

It doesn’t. I’m not sure if there’s a technical limitation perhaps with fuse they prevents it. I couldn’t find any issues related to it though.

Technically this would be possible. The Linux cp command uses ioctl (dest_fd, BTRFS_IOC_CLONE, src_fd); to create a file copy on btrfs.

FUSE supports the ioctl syscall, but the Go implementation that rclone uses currently doesn’t.

So it’s possible, but would require some work.

The move I think is server side as it is very fast

Yes. I noticed the same thing.

Perhaps create a issue on GitHub for an enhancement.

I’ll do when I’ll be on pc … From mobile … Bad :slight_smile:
