Google Drive to Google Drive. 119 errors. How to fix?

I'm using d2dyno's rclone-gui docker container, which I'm running on a headless Ubuntu server and using rclone GUI.

I'm copying between standard Google Drives and using the server_side_across_configs = true switch so that I'm not using local bandwidth. Transfer speeds of around 1GPS. Awesome!

I've noticed that it has 119 errors in the 10,000 files that I've transferred, which is a small amount but of course, I want it to be an identical match. As best I can see, the GUI doesn't tell me which files have failed.

What's the best way of getting a 100% perfect sync? Either in rclone or some other way?

Without a log, there's really no way to guess what happened.

You had deleted the help and support template so all the good information is missing. Why did you delete it and not use it?

Fair point. Here it is again.

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Google Drive to Google Drive via server_side_across_configs = true has 100 errors in 10,000 files. I'd like to find a way of ensuring that all files have been copied correctly, whether that's using rclone or via another method.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

d2dyno rclone-gui docker container on Ubuntu server.

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)

Unknown - using GUI

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

[Google Drive1]
type = drive
client_id = [redacted]
client_secret = [redacted]
scope = drive
token = [redacted]
server_side_across_configs = true

[Google Drive2]
type = drive
client_id = [redacted]
client_secret = [redacted]
scope = drive
token = [redacted]
server_side_across_configs = true

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I'm unsure how to change the log level in the docker container, but here's the log as is.

That's an old version of rclone so you should update it.

The 404s are permission errors as you need the right permissions to use server side.

If you can't give the right permissions, you'd want to turn that flag off.

Thanks. Permissions were fine as far as I can tell.

For anyone who might come across this looking for a fix later, for whatever reason the files copied across correctly on another attempt, apart from filenames with a colon in which it choked on.

I was able to use the Synchronize function in Transmit for Mac to compare the two Google Drives.

That is a permission issue.

Rclone is designed so that you can run it again and it should fix up anything that got left out.

You can also use rclone check
