--exclude-from seems not to work


#1

I am testing Rclone --exclude-form. I have a simlple directory

H:\programs\Test_Rclone with one file in it test.iso

When I run rclone with -exclude *.iso, the file does not get copied to Onedrive

When I run Rclone with --exclude-from exclude-file.txt with a single record *.iso, the iso file is copied to the cloud.

i’ve read everything I can find and am pulling my hair out! can someone please correct my error?

Can you run add --dump filters to the command line and see what that says? It should look like this

--- start filters ---
--- File filter rules ---
- (^|/)[^/]*\.iso$
--- Directory filter rules ---
--- end filters ---

I wonder if rclone is getting confused by windows line endings or something like that.

Thank you @ncw indeed dump filters has shown that the windows file is corrupt…

$excludes = ‘*.iso’
$excludes | Out-File C:\Users\lordn\Downloads\exclude-file.txt -Encoding ascii

Adding -Encoding ascii

has fixed the problem

#5

It looks like that text file is in UTF-16 format or something like that…

How did you make it BTW?


#6

@ncw Standard powershell

$excludes = ‘*.iso’
$excludes | Out-File C:\Users\lordn\Downloads\exclude-file.txt -Encoding ascii

now writes it correctly.
