Different passwords for different remote configuration


I have two different remotes with two different GoogleDrive accounts. I want to set up different passwords for each of these configurations.
I used "rclone config" and set up a password, but it sets the same password for both remotes.


hello and welcome to the forum,

you can only use one password to encrypt a rclone config file.

you can create two different config files, and have a unique password for each.

let me know if you have any questions

Hi, Thank you for your response.

Exactly, I have two remotes, and I want to have a unique password for each. Do you know how can I do that? Thanks a lot!

the password is for the entire config file.

I didn't get your point. Let me describe my situation.

I used "Rclone config" and added two different google drive accounts. Both of them are working, but I want to set up different passwords for each of them.

My understanding of your response is that, each of these google drive accounts should be in different configs file. Correct? I don't know how can I do that.

what are the name of the two remotes?

They are the names I used when I created remotes ("test1" and "test2" for instance)

copy rclone.conf test1.conf
copy rclone.conf test2.conf

then use
delete remote test2 from test1.conf
delete remote test1 from test2.conf

then password protect each .conf file.

when you run rclone, you need to tell rclone which config file to use

Problem solved thanks!

great. i am glad i could help you solve your problem.
