Hi, I'm new to rclone. I want to move photos from one Google Photos account to another Google Photos account.
I want to run this command.
rclone move "papa:/" "storage2:/" --progress
Here "papa" and "storage2" are two remotes of [Type: "Google Photos"]
I am trying to run this command but it is showing me this error, Please check this (link or photo)
Why I am not able to transfer(copy or move) photos and videos from one Google Photos account to another Google Photos account?
Do the individual
storage2: remotes work OK? It looks like one of them isn't authorised properly.
Test them with
rclone lsf papa:albums
rclone lsf storage2:albums
I'm not sure rclone is the best tool for this. Exporting photos from google photos will strip some of the EXIF data.
I would use Google takeout to download all of the
papa storage then you can use rclone to upload it to
I have tested the commands mentioned by you, and I have received these errors.
If it is not authorised properly then, How do I authorize it? What should I do to authorised it?
I retried that command and it is showing me all albums.
And now I am thinking that both my Google Photos accounts are authorized.
Is there any such command in Rclone, with the help of which I can transfer all the photos of one Google Photos accounts to another Google Photos account?
I have not saved most of the photos and videos in albums, I have saved most of the photos and videos without creating albums in Google Photos.
Please tell me any such command, with the help of which I can transfer photos without any error
See Whenever I am trying to move photos using this command
rclone move "papa:/" "storage2:/" -progress
It is showing me these errors

And it is showing me not only 5-6 errors, but many errors like this.
What should I do?
Rclone can copy photos, but it can't delete photos that it didn't upload (thats a Google API limitation) so you will have to use
To copy things that you've put in albums use
rclone copy -P papa:album storage2:album
To copy everything (including the stuff in albums) use this to upload all the pics.
rclone copy -P papa:media/by-month storage2:upload
Yup, it worked , Thank you
