How to check long running rclone progress

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I use rclone to copy 1TB from my local linux box to GoogleDrive. It has been 5 hours and it still doesn't finish. I do see the process is still running in the background. However, when I list the file in the remote directory, the tool cannot find it.

rclone copy /home/user/large_file_1TB GoogleDrive:data/

rclone ls GoogleDrive:data/large_file_1TB
2019/12/10 10:40:40 Failed to ls: directory not found

I also cannot see the in-progress uploading file through Chrome while checking my GDrive.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.4

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

CentOS 7 64bit

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)

rclone copy

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

You'd write to a log file or to the screen.

--log-level INFO --log-file /tmp/something.log

Or you can use -P if you want to get output to the screen.

Many options :slight_smile:

The process is still running.
I assume your comments only work for a new task.

thank you

So if you are moving a single file, there is no resume so you'd lose everything you've copied so far as you have 1 big file.

You can use something like:


assuming you have some memory to spare on the machine to help speed it up. Single file usually get capped around 25-35MB/s so assuming you got that, I'd say it would take 10-12 hours on the optimistic side.

Also, why I cannot see the uploaded file in GDrive while the uploading is still in process?

Thank you

You can't till it's uploaded.
