Failed to load config file "...": could not parse line:

I had been using rclone for a few months until I got this when typing “rclone config”
Failed to load config file “…”: could not parse line:

Thanks in advance.

Can you share the config file? Seems like you have a bad character in there.

(remove any keys or passwords before posting it)

What OS?

I normally just use vi on it.

Mine is stored here:

felix@gemini:~/scripts$ rclone config file
Configuration file is stored at:

Windows. Sorry, what is vi?

So you can use whatever your favorite editor is like notepad or something.

You can run the same command that I shared “rclone config file” to show where the conf file is.

I’ve located the file and apparently it’s somehow nullnullnull… in notepad++.
How could that have happened?

Did you change users and maybe it’s in there home location?

I’m not a Windows guy so not sure how. I would just recreate it and go from there if that’s easier.

So entering the previous passwords should work as I read in another thread?

Yep. If you use the same passwords you used before, no issues.

What version of rclone are you using? Old versions of rclone used to corrupt the config file ocasionally - I thought that was fixed.
