Error listing directory, Google Drive

When I use the following command:

rclone lsd remote

I get the following error:

ERROR : : error listing: directory not found
2018/08/24 13:40:56 Failed to lsd: directory not found

Here’s my config file settings. This happens whether or not I use it as a team drive or not, or whether or not I specify the root folder ID.

type = drive
client_id =
client_secret =
scope = drive
root_folder_id = 1m2S3YahQB7hDBp-W3Y8-xNEpiqQ7IEhS
service_account_file =
token = {"access_token":"editedforsecurity.tokenthinghere","token_type":"Bearer","refresh_token":"1/alsoeditedforsecurity.tokenthinghere","expiry":"2018-08-24T14:40:33.495022-04:00"}
team_drive = 0BN2_jQKHU4X4Pk9ZOA

I’m using the Windows 64-bit version on Windows 10.

Edit: I’m a dingus and forgot to specify the name of the remote.

If you want to display the directories at the root, you need to do

rclone lsd YOUR_REMOTE:/

The command you want to do always come first after the rclone command.

Well that’s embarrassing and fixed it right up. Thank you!
