I am locally syncing gdrive folders shared with me.
In some of these, there are nested folders with different sharing rules, eg. there is A/B/C/, where
A/ is shared with we with reader permission
C/ is shared with we with editor permission
When syncing, rclone creates destDir/A/B/C/, and duplicates it to destDir/C/.
Moreover, excluding C/ using a "- C/**" filter results in both destDir/A/B/C/ and destDir/C/ being excluded; so it seems rclone is already able to identify them as same files.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
Thanks, it works; I missed it in the documentation.
It's a good workaround, however the main issue remains: I would have to manually exclude every shared subfolder while rclone could be able to detect them.
