Duplicate object found in destination - ignoring (rclone causes this?)

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I rclone to a new disk, but when I do that again, and again, it stated a lot of duplicate files.
(some files actually exist more than once)

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

rclone v1.60.1

  • os/version: darwin 13.0.1 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 22.1.0 (x86_64)
  • os/type: darwin
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.3
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

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

Nasdrive via SMB

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

rclone sync /Volumes/Kingston-2TB /Volumes/NasDisk --include='/{stack,data}/**' --delete-during -v -P --modify-window 15s --no-update-modtime  --transfers=5 --checkers=50 --ignore-size

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

no config in use

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Just a part:
2022-11-24 10:06:31 NOTICE: data/go-jo/DEVELOP/docs/sub/Flow-Diagram.png:Zone.Identifier: Duplicate object found in destination - ignoring
Transferred:   	          0 B / 0 B, -, 0 B/s, ETA -

Also tried the dedupe command, but it is unclear how this would work without a config.

rclone lsl /Volumes/NasDisk:dupes


rclone lsl /Volumes/NasDisk:dupes
2022/11/24 10:26:20 NOTICE: Config file "/Users/myname/.config/rclone/rclone.conf" not found - using defaults
2022/11/24 10:26:20 ERROR : : error listing: directory not found
2022/11/24 10:26:20 Failed to lsl with 2 errors: last error was: directory not found

This is odd!

The only think I can think is that you are syncing from a case sensitive file system to a case insensitive file system.

Might you have files called Hello.txt and hello.txt?
