can anyone tell me why rclone created a local copy of the files i uploaded.
These are my steps that i took when i tested rclone since this is my first time setting it up
Step 1 downloaded and extracted rclone on C:\Users\Anon\Rclone
Step 2 the directory of my file i want uploaded C:\Users\Anon\Personal File
Step 3 configured rclone to point to my gdrive
Step 4 went into rclone folder through the cmd prompt and typed in rclone copy C:\Users\Anon\Personal File" "Anthony Google Drive:/Anon"```` Step 5 upload was successful then i deleted the folder in my gdrive named anon so i can do a crypted upload Step 6 configured a crypt drive Step 7 rclone copy "C:/Users/Anon/Personal File" "drivecrypt" Step 8 checked the drive using webbrowser but couldnt find the folder nor my files in my gdrive. checked through rclone using rclone ls drivecrypt``` rclone was able to list the file but i think this is because it is looking at the local directory it had created
can rclone also encrypt locally or can it only encrypt files on the online drive? if it cant encrypt locally what do you guys suggest an alternative that can work great with rclone.
how secure is my config file if i jusy use the builtin encrypt function of rclone config.
what do i need to do to sync my files on my gdrive? lets say i sometimes edit files sometimes i delete it sometimes i add.
if the answer is rclone can sync how reliable is the sync. currently im using syncthing to sync between my mobile device
rclone v 1.56.0
i just want to clarify can rclone can encrypt the source or only the destination?
example i have a files on c:/users/anon/personal file. can i make rclone encrypt that without copying anything to another destination?
for the config i thought it was clear that i used the original builtin encrypt function of rclone. so when you open rclone config it shows you option if you want to encrypt the config file.
hi thanks i think you nailed it on my question number 1
with the rclone crypt remote, rclone takes a source file, crypts it, and then copies it to the crypt remote.
sorry, no way around that.
rclone will never touch the source file unless you rclone move a file.
the crypt location can be local or any backend rclone supports such as gdrive.
as for the config file, encrypting that has nothing to do with crypt remote.
rclone can encrypt the config file as a security measure.
rclone and cryptomator use non-compatible encryption.
rclone cannot decrypt a cryptomator crypted file and cryptomator cannot decrypt a rclone crypted file.
tho you can crypt files using cryptomator and upload them with rclone.
as for local encryption, rclone can crypt a local folder.
and you can use rclone mount to view/copy the files in their decrypted file names using windows explorer.
depending on the setup, you can edit the files using microsoft word and other apps.
at this step, for the remote, type in a local path, for example c:\path\to\local\folder
other than that, the rest of the config process is the same.
Remote to encrypt/decrypt.
Normally should contain a ':' and a path, eg "myremote:path/to/dir",
"myremote:bucket" or maybe "myremote:" (not recommended).
Enter a string value. Press Enter for the default ("").
as a test,
rclone copy file.txt localcrypt:
rclone ls localcrypt:
after that, to see the files in windows explorer, need to create a rclone mount. rclone mount localcrypt: x:
