I have Rclone configured to my gdrive and mounted locally. Im looking to move a load of data from one folder to another. I know by copying the folder it will go against my 750gb daily limit as it will first download and then upload to the new folder. I have no real need to copy the data though i just need to move it from one folder to another , will this still go against my daily limit if I simply cut and paste it ?
It really depends on the OS and what cut and paste does.
I'd just use a command prompt and just move it.
If it server side moves, it does not count against quota.
thanks for the quick reply
im using linux and just opening a pane and doing the usual right click cut and then pasting n the folder i need it to be in .It seems to be moving it to quickly to be copying anything so i can assume its not going against quota?
That's probably a safe assumption.
You can validate if you write out an INFO log as you'd see something like:
2019/12/09 11:09:13 INFO : hosts: Moved (server side)
It will say Moved server side.
brilliant ! thanks for your help and quick replies
