Google Drive - Files invisible

My Problem

I cant see the files I synced to Google Drive. Accessing them from rclone works fine, but I am not sure if the encryption worked, since it ls shows me the real filenames.

Drive scope is set Access to files created by rclone only.which should still display the files.
I am running macOS Mojave.

Used command
rclone sync /Users/X/Desktop/DATA BASEcrypt:test


rclone v1.53.0-DEV

- os/arch: darwin/amd64

- go version: go1.15


type = drive
scope = drive.file
token = {"access_token":"X","token_type":"Bearer","refresh_token":"1//X","expiry":"X"}

type = crypt
remote = BASE
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = *** ENCRYPTED ***
password2 = *** ENCRYPTED ***

hello and welcome to the forum,

you should be able to log into google drive website and look at folder names and file names.
they should be encrypted.

rclone ls will, on the fly, decrypt the folder names and file names.

The files do not show up :confused:
I tried it with another Drive account and changed created other remotes without capitals.

can you do rclone ls BASE: post the command and output as text.

This needs a : on the end otherwise you are using a local directory.

I suggest you use a subdirectory also so use remote = BASE:crypt or something like that.
