Google Drive Direct Remote to Remote Copy?

As far as I understand it is possible to copy directly from google drive to another google drive but I can’t seem to get it working - the copy speed is limited by my upload rate on my personal connection.

What am I doing wrong? The command I’m running is:

rclone.exe --config C:/Users/jammi/Downloads/rclone-v1.40-windows-386/rclone-v1.40-windows-386/rclone.conf copy --ignore-existing --verbose --transfers 2 --checkers 8 --contimeout 60s --timeout 300s --retries 1 --low-level-retries 10 --stats 15s “CCom:OBS Recordings/Closing Tickets/” “GoogleDriveTest1:test/”

“CCom” and “GoogleDriveTest1” are the two names of the google drive accounts and the command does work properly, it’s just of course uploading slowly because my upload is limited to 10mbps.

rclone will do a server side copy only if the drives are within the same account, ie have the same remote: prefix.

So in this case rclone will do a download and then re-upload.

You might be able to share the files from one drive to another, then copy them elsewhere with the --drive-shared-with-me flag. Not 100% sure that will work though!
