Expected rclone behavior upon shutdown

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

No problem - just a general question. Namely, what is the expected behavior if the user initiates a system shutdown while rclone is in the middle of a clone job and a particular file copy? What is the state of the interrupted file on both sides after the system is restarted? Will rclone receive a signal and stop gracefully - on Windows? on Mac? Will the clone resume with the interrupted file?


What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

That's really pretty broad and hard to give an exact answer to as it really depends on how the system was shutdown and what the configuration is on each system and what command you are running and what remote you are using.

Generally, the copy would fail and the command would end and you'd have to recopy the same file again. If you have more details, I can help provide a more exact answer.

Understood. Thank you for the quick response!
