I am trying to sanitise my uploaded files to Google Photos after doing a local dedupe, and of course I find that Google have their special renaming scheme (which is documented in rclone docs). So, it will not let me delete qjuite a lot of duplicate photos using sync with INVALID ARGUMENT.
To work around this manually I have done an lsf and then grep-ed out all the files with brackets to create a list in a file.
rclone -n -v delete --include-from ~/photos-delete.txt -P gphotos:
where the lines in photo-delete.txt have been prefixed with "/album/" - and without too - shows me no attempted deletions. I have not yet dared remove the -n
Am I misunderstanding how this should work?
(My aim is to delete all the special renames and then sync with --delete-before to clear up a bit more)
