Copying one file at a time (sequentially)

I am currently using “rclone copy X G -v --stats 10s” which works well.

This results in multiple files being uploaded at the same time. I only have a slow upstream connection and I am copying large files. Just copying one file typically takes 8 hours for these large files. If two files are copying concurrently it means I might have to wait 16 hours before even one is completed. This long transfer time increases the risk of a failed copy due to a network interruption.

Other than specifically specifying the file name, is there a switch to control the number of files concurrently copying?

–transfers=1 (or whichever number you choose)



Clearly I wasn’t using the right search term.

just to add it’s --transfers=N (double dash)
