What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I have set up my OneDrive remote, and all files are showing up correctly when I type
rclone ls onedrive: Then I tried to set up an encrypted remote following the official instructions. But when I check back the crypt folders in onedrive, nothing seems to be encrypted and I can still see original names for all files. When I type in
rclone ls test: no files shows up in Putty terminal

welcome to the forum,
you need to copy file(s) into the crypt. think of it as a vault.
rclone copy file.ext test: -vv
rclone ls test:
I use your code to copy a random file from my vps to the encrypted remote, it's showing up now, and appears to be encrypted when I check from OneDrive.
Does it only encrypt new files after the remote is established, not the existed ones ?
yes, that is how it works
Ohh, I see
I try to copy another random file from my pc to OneDrive, and type
rclone ls test: That file won't show up in Putty.
Does it mean that the encrypted remote only sees files that are uploaded using Rclone, and files that are encrypted by Rclone ?
up above, i shared an example.
to crypt a file,
rclone copy file.ext test:
to decrypt a file
rclone copy test:file.ext ./
rclone ls test:
rclone lsf test: --format="pe"
rclone ls onedrive:/test1
Yeah, your above command helps me understand better! the encrypted remote only sees encrypted files through
ls, whereas the original onedrive remote can see all files
Got a little confused though when you say
Let me know if I understand these correctly:
So the first line is to upload files into the remote, and files are encrypted in the process, thus 'crypt a file'
The second line is to download files back to the server, and files are decrypted during the process, thus 'decrypt a file'
yes, that is how it works.
Got it, much appreciated!
