GDrive: specific file is copied again and again with every sync


#1

Hello

After setting up a rclone backup job for dropbox <> SFTP server I also want to automatically backup my GDrive to SFTP server. In general it works as supposed but one specific file gets synced again and again with every rclone sync run.

It’s a Google Docs document which has not been changed since month. But the rclone check directly after rclone sync reports the following:

2018/04/06 03:01:35 ERROR : File.docx: Sizes differ
2018/04/06 03:01:39 NOTICE: Encrypted drive 'gdrive:path/actual': 1 differences found
2018/04/06 03:01:39 NOTICE: Encrypted drive 'gdrive:path/actual': 143 hashes could not be checked
2018/04/06 03:01:39 Failed to check: 1 differences found

So this file is copied with every rclone sync. What could be the reason for this re-sync issue?

I think this got fixed for v1.40 - have you tried that?

I was using v1.39 and updated to v1.40. The issue is solved now.

Thanks for fixing it.
