GDrive, move files from shared public folder to encrypted personal remote

Sorry for any mistakes. English is not my native language

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I want to move all files from a GDrive shared folder (around 2TB) to my personal encrypted GDrive remote. The thing is, I don't have 2TB available on my computer. I have around 250GB, which is enough to download files partially.

I thought of something like this: download files to my computer -> upload these files to my encrypted remote -> delete files from my computer -> repeat until everything is copied. Is there a rclone command to do this?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.51.0

  • os/arch: darwin/amd64

  • go version: go1.13.7

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

macOS Catalina (x64)

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Didn't run the command yet, because I'm not sure if it will work, but here's what I thought of running.

rclone move remote:src_shared_folder secret:dest_folder --drive-shared-with-me --bwlimit 8650k -P

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I didn't run the command yet.

Rclone won't use disk space on your computer when doing the transfer, so just do an rclone copy from the source to the destination.

Oh, didn't know about that. Thanks for the help!
