Duplicate folders created in Google Drive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Rcloe creates duplicate folders while copying from shared-with-me folder. The result being duplicate "FolderY" folders. Command below.

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

2022/11/30 13:16:32 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.60.1"

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy "***,shared_with_me:/FolderX/" "***,shared_with_me:FolderY/FolderX/" -P --checkers=40 --transfers=20 -vv  --drive-stop-on-upload-limit

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
scope = drive
token = {"access_token":"","token_type":"Bearer","refresh_token":"1","expiry":"2022-11-30T14:26:32.027497+01:00"}
team_drive = 
server_side_across_configs = true
root_folder_id = 

Can you post a log file?

I think this is Using copy with --drive-shared-with-me flag doesn't check for existing files · Issue #1902 · rclone/rclone · GitHub

This should be fixed by removing the shared_with_me in the destination.

Thank you, that worked! No more duplicates.

I very much appreciate your work and dedication.
