Google Cloud Storage operation costs

Class A operations (per 10,000 operations) $0.05 ( Multi-Regional and Regional)

I use it to backup some servers but some servers have 100,000 files the first time it cost me money (i know)

My question is:
when you do 'rclone sync /directory' does it make 100,000 operations again ?

Short answer: No

Long Answer:

It will list the directory structure which will take as many operations as you have directories (roughly). If you have lots of memory then use --fast-list which will do the minimum number of directory reads at the cost of using more memory. For 100,000 files I'd use --fast-list.

The only other costs are when a file needs uploading.

Unlike s3, no extra transactions are required to read the modification time.
