Local items being deleted when excluded using filter-from

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

Thanks, I'll fix it

Apologies. Please try again. I accidently set to private instead of unlisted.


filters paths are relative from the source remote, not from the root of the file system.
it is a common confusion in the forum,

perhaps the filter should be

- "/bluray/"
- "/dvd/"

and best to test filters using rclone ls,
that way, can see what rclone would do, without moving/deleteing any files.
