I’ve got an existing crypt remote, and I’m trying to split off 1 particular folder off into its own, separate crypt remote.
I thought I’d try the below method, so that everything could take place on the server:
create a copy (duplicate) of the crypt remote’s underlying files by using “rclone copy” on the remote where the crypt resides, to copy its contents to a new folder on the underlying remote.
accessing the original crypt remote, delete the unwanted files (i.e. the stuff I wanna split off into a new crypt remote)
accessing the duplicated crypt remote, delete the files left over in step 2 (i.e the stuff that I want to keep in the original remote, not the new one)
change the encryption key of the new, duplicated remote, so that it’s not the same as the original one.
The problem I’m encountering is in step 1. Everything has been copying server-side without any issues, but it’s reached a point where it’s just ground to a halt, nothing is transferring anymore. There are files listed as “Transferring” but there’s no progress at all.
Any clue what’s causing it? Here’s the command I’m running (using RCloneBrowser):
rclone copy --checksum --verbose --transfers 4 --checkers 8 --contimeout 60s --timeout 300s --retries 3 --low-level-retries 10 --delete-excluded --fast-list --stats 1s remote:folder remote:folder_copy
