--drive-export-formats link.html Gdrive error

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am running: rclone bisync path1 gdrive: --drive-export-formats link.html
The first run works fine.
If a Google Doc is updated in gdrive, the next run of the same command gives an error message:
2023-03-03 17:29:56 ERROR : cta/ctac-cb-chair/ctac-mou-v2.0-proposal-under-discussion-task-force.link.html: Failed to copy: cannot update link files
It seems rclone identifies the file changed in gdrive and tries to download it again which leads to the error message.
Since the file in path1 is only a link, rclone should ignore the change in the file at gdrive.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.61.1

  • os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
