Seems some album names are multi-lined and rclone is not able to sync these.
$ rclone --version rclone v1.56.0 - os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit) - os/kernel: 5.4.0-80-generic (x86_64) - os/type: linux - os/arch: amd64 - go/version: go1.16.5 - go/linking: static - go/tags: none $
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64-bit
rclone sync --transfers=10 --max-duration=59m --retries 1 --timeout 1m --fast-list --gphotos-include-archived --gphotos-start-year=1970 --log-level INFO --log-file=photos_2021-07-26_16-02_shared-album.txt gphotos:shared-album /REDACTED_FULL_PATH/shared-album
I noticed this at the top of the log file:
2021/07/26 16:02:01 INFO : Local file system at /REDACTED_FULL_PATH/shared-album: Transfer session deadline: 2021/07/26 17:01:01 2021/07/26 16:02:46 ERROR : Upahara Darshini (Barjari Oota) & UD Residency Jayanagar Bangalore with REDACTED and REDACTED : error reading source directory: directory not found 2021/07/26 16:02:46 ERROR : California Citrus State Historic Park 29 Dec 2019: error reading source directory: directory not found 2021/07/26 16:02:50 NOTICE: [TRUNCATED]
These two are shared albums shared with me by someone else so I don't control the album name. I looked them up in the Google Photos web UI and they seem to look normal. However it seems the album name is multi lined based on the log (some \n I think?). I confirmed this by running:
$ rclone lsd gphotos:shared-album -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 14 10TB Seagate EXOS Purchase [TRUNCATED] -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 67 California Citrus State Historic Park 29 Dec 2019 -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 30 Cambramatta for the Moon Festival [TRUNCATED] -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 97 UYN Community Masks Ordering - July 2020 -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 19 Upahara Darshini (Barjari Oota) & UD Residency Jayanagar Bangalore with Ushaji Savithri and Sheela -1 2021-07-26 20:13:26 299 Van Gogh and the Seasons - NGV Exhibition [TRUNCATED] $
My attempt to create an album that has a multi-lined album name has failed (at least via the Google Photos web UI). These two albums are a few years old so it could be that a bug in the past allowed creating albums with multi-line names and that is no longer possible.
rclone needs to handle the case where an album name is multi-lined?
