Dropbox Batching

I frequently run into Too many requests or write operations. Trying again in 300 seconds. when trying to sync from my Dropbox with >100k files to local disk, even when no files have been changed.

The command I run is:

rclone sync --progress dropbox: /media/data/backup/dropbox

I have seen several threads that describe batching requests for Dropbox (unfortunately it seems I'm not allowed to link to them?), which should address this, but I could not find any flags related to this in the latest beta version.

Is this planned to be included in the beta release, or should I be using a special branch to get this feature?

$ rclone version
rclone v1.56.0-beta.5481.6ef7178ee
- os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.4.0-1034-raspi (aarch64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: arm64
- go/version: go1.16.3
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

hello and welcome to the forum,

you can find examples here

Great thank you, that does fix the requests exceeded errors!

Are there any plans to include this in the main branch?

not sure

  • based on this it should be been in the lastest stable
  • yet it is not mentioned here

It isn't in the master branch yet, it is only in a branch.

I'm going to merge it soon though so it will be in the latest beta.
