Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

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

rclone.exe --config C:/Users/xxx/.config/rclone/rclone.conf copy --update --ignore-existing --verbose --transfers 13 --contimeout 60s --timeout 300s --retries 3 --low-level-retries 10 --drive-chunk-size 128M --stats 1s --stats-file-name-length 0 --fast-list "E:\TV Shows" "gdrive_full_crypt:TV Shows"

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

hello and welcome to the forum,

  • does this happen with that one file?
  • does this happend to that file every time you run rclone?
  • have you run a chkdsk on e:\?
  • the latest rclone is v1.53.1

thanks for the reply.
this happens with 3 files and it happened multiple times.
I haven't run chkdsk but I was able to upload hundreds of gigabytes before and after it happend.

try to do a local to local copy on those three files, not using rclone.

well the copy worked from another mount to the same remote. probably some issue with my hard disk. thanks for the help!

yes, based on the error, this is a local issue, not a remote issue.
