I had made a remote with Rclone for my Google Disk account and all files on it, i then made a Encrypt Remote to encrypt all files in my Google Disk (with folders).
However the Virtual Machine with the Rclone where the Google (Disk) remote was and the Encrypted (Crypt) remote was, got corrupted and I had to delete it.
As expected the files on my Google Disk didn't get decrypted just because the original Rclone was gone, but how can I decrypt the files and download them? or decrypt them locally with a new Rclone installation?
I tried to download Rclone and make the same Remotes again (Google and Crypt), but even thought the Google remote could find the files (encrypted) the Crypt remote didn't find any files when I did the "rclone ls Crypt:" command and couldn't decrypt them to my device like the original Rclone could.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
- os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 20H2 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 10.0.19042.1706 (x86_64)
- os/type: windows
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.9
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: cmount
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
Alright, thankfully the Google Drive and VM was newly made for me to test Rclone. However if I decide to use Rclone to sync and encrypt my files and folders I should copy the original Config file with passwords and ID Tokens from the then remotes somewhere safely incase I ever need to make a new Rclone on a new Device?
I fully agree with you Nick.
For an example: a self hosted bitwarden server. Requiring a root password upon boot of the service, along with a master password upon trying to view / copy the 'key' for the specific remote flag field.
Also if I sync one folder, but the only change in the folder is 1 new file. Rclone will not try to upload the entire folder again? It will then notice the only difference is the new file and only upload that and leave the rest untouched?
Because I am now syncing a folder of 1TB data, but I'm seeing some files getting Errors while trying to Upload it to my chosen Cloud Service.
If I Sync the folder again when its done with the original Syncing, will Rclone try to upload the files to replace the already existing files again? Or will Rclone be smart enough to see that the files are the same and only upload the files that aren't already uploaded?
