Google Drive I/O Error

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I've successfully mounted a Google Drive remote and can browse through its contents, but any time I try to copy a file to another folder, I receive an I/O error that prevents me from being able to do so.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v.1.54.1

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

Ubuntu Server, 64-bit

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)

sudo cp -R /GoogleDrive /temp/GoogleDrive

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = REMOVED
client_secret = REMOVED
scope = drive
token = REMOVED

A log from the command with the -vv flag

cp: error reading '/GoogleDrive/examplefile.ext: Input/output error

If it helps, here's how I'm mounting it:

# /etc/systemd/system/rclone-mount-GoogleDrive.service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rclone mount \
        --config=/home/rclone/rclone.conf \
        --vfs-cache-mode writes \
		--allow-other \
		--drive-shared-with-me \
		--log-file /home/rclone/Logs/rclone-GoogleDrive.log \
		GoogleDrive: /home/GoogleDrive
ExecStop=/bin/fusermount -u /home/GoogleDrive



would need to the full debug log.

  1. stop the rclone mount
  2. add this to the command, --log-level=DEBUG
  3. start the mount
  4. copy a single file
  5. stop the mount
  6. upload the log to the forum,
