What is the problem you are having with rclone?

DropBox config stops working after only a short time of functioning.
RClone has to be removed from DropBox's apps list and then then re-added to start working again.
Appears almost as if RCLone is not refresh token after expiration.

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

rclone v1.61.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19045.2965 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.4
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount
