What is the problem you are having with rclone?
- rclone is not able to create an empty folder but other programs can.
note that the following can create persistent empty folders
- s3 browser
- cloudberry explorer
- aws s3 website
- wasabi website
- based on log file, rclone states that it created the folder, but really it does not create the folder.
What is your rclone version (output from
rclone v1.53.1 - os/arch: windows/amd64 - go version: go1.15
Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone.exe mkdir aws01:vserver03.veeam.br.en07/en07/rclone/archive -vv
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
[aws01] type = s3 provider = AWS access_key_id = redacted secret_access_key = redacted region = us-east-1
A log from the command with the
