Copy on Google Drive creating duplicates on second run

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Ran rclone copy yesterday to duplicate a Google Drive remote to another Google Drive remote using server side copying. Everything seemed to work fine. Ran it again this evening to get any files updated in last 24 hours and it's creating duplicates of some files in the destination remote. The duplicates seem to be Google Doc and Google Sheet files.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.51.0

  • os/arch: darwin/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.7

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Mac Catalina

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)

sudo rclone copy source:"Company Files" remote:"Company Files (copied)" --drive-server-side-across-configs -P

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I do not have this as it is still running and I didn't execute with the -vv flag.

Is this copying to a Shared (Team) drive?

We're going to need logs with -vv of the duplicates being made if possible. That should show what is going on from rclone's perspective.

Is it duplicating all the Google Doc/Sheet files or just some of them?

Note that you can remove duplicates with rclone dedupe (though not sure it works on Google Docs/Sheets...)
