As documented, RClone only excludes files not directories. Please consider adding an
- Users may have a directory of temporary files that they don't need copied to the back-end.
- In my case Synology created the #Recycle directory as not readable for mere mortals. From a security perspecive this make sense. This causes an error when trying to copy. RClone developer work-around -- give users read-only access to the directory. That works but not ideal.
Clearly one can open up secure directories to copy and then exclude all files but that isn't elegant.
Also, it appears that
--exclude will actually silently skip the item. Should there be an option to put a note in the INFO log that files are skipped?
