Delete files on GoogleDrive


How can i delete files on Google Drive by rclone command?

Thank you.

rclone delete

You may also want to be aware of rclone purge if you need to delete a large folder (not individual files).
Delete will iterate through the files which can be slow if there are many files. purge will trash the entire folder (asyncronusly). Use whichever is appropriate for the job.

Are you sure it's possible to delete files from GoogleDrive by rclone command, because i try i get error authorizations. I don't have my script here but the GoogleDrive key have all permissions?

It would your permissions and nothing to do with rclone itself.

[felix@gemini ~]$
[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone copy /etc/hosts GD:
[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone ls GD:hosts
      243 hosts
[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone delete GD:hosts
[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone ls GD:hosts

As an example.
