GDrive Uploads in limbo

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I mount google team drives using rclone. Usually everything works well but occasionally the mount and google drive itself are out of sync. For example I copy a local folder and it's files to a mounted gdrive. The copy command finishes successfully, but the files do not appear where they should in the gdrive ui. I noticed that the files are present in recent activity, but they do not have a folder. If I follow the recent activity folder gdrive ui looks like this:

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.3

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

5.10.2-2-MANJARO x86_64

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)


The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive
root_folder_id = 
acknowledge_abuse = true

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I did not mount the drives with appropriate logging, but I will update when this happens again

hello and welcome to the forum,

can you post the rclone mount command?

Very basic
rclone mount --fast-list MountName: ~/MountPoint

--fast-list does nothing on a mount.

there was nothing in that image you posted.

does the problem happen when using rclone copy?

not much to do without a debug log with an example of the problem.

could this be a mistake with the cp command?
would need to post the cp command that caused the problem.

Do the files appear eventually?

I've noticed before that team drives are sometimes slow about updating their directory listings for reasons i don't understand.

For example if you sync 100 items, then immediately redo the sync, sometimes rclone will reupload some files because it can't see them in the listing, whereas they appear later and cause duplicates.
