Error message: .stfolder: can't overwrite file with directory


#1

Trying to sync with Google Drive, lately I get this error message. No idea how to fix it. Thank you.

That means that on drive .stfolder is a file, but it is a directory on your local disk (or the other way round).

You’ll need to either rename the local .stfolder or the one on drive.

Hi

This is a bit of a ‘necrobump’, but, could and would you tell me, is there any way to force rclone to overwrite, in such a case as this? Thanks.

Cf. also this post.

No. You’d need to rename it.
