Files upload will be auto compress,how do I sync a file to remote?

I used sync command sync dir by FTP, the remote server will auto compress my files, so rclone always checksum failed, re-upload again and again! Can anybody help me?

Can you post the command you are running and some log with -vv of the problem and I'll see if I can help :smiley:

When I added --ignore-size --ignore-checksum,the log is

When checking that the name of the remote file is the same as that of the local file, they skip copying. Is that possible?

Hmm, try --size-only --ignore-size that sounds weird, but I think that will do it!

I add --size-only --ignore-size , but it return error: Can't use --size-only and --ignore-size together.

Try this with --size-only --ignore-size

Thanks for your help!:grinning:
I find it's not rclone problem, this is the FTP server problem´╝îit seems to occupy file when video uploaded successfully. You can find more details here.
By the way, I want to know what did rclone do(or check something) after the upload was successful?

Yes, rclone will check the size, checksum of the file once it is uploaded. In the case of FTP that is only the size.
