Thank you for your response! What I’m doing now is, I opened 5 instances of cmd.exe and I enter hundreds of rclone commands, one for each file, in each cmd window. This helps to get simultaneous upload, but it’s still too slow.
If I somehow do that loop you mentioned, would it speed things up? My understanding of this is limited. I understand that copying is slow because one rclone command needs to finish before next can start. If command is executed in loop, does one iteration needs to finish before next start? I won’t be able to use --transfers flag?
I’m not a programmer Learning how to do this would take me a considerable amount of time. I’m just wondering if it’s worth it?
Hi Nick. It worked like a charm! I can’t thank you enough dude. I checked your donation page and I’m more than eager to help you buy your wife a flower or two. I’m afraid I don’t have for a whole bucket (I’m checking how much it costs in UK, it’s really £20-30 ? ) But one day when I become rich I’ll be sure to remember you I don’t have paypal though, they ignored my country (Serbia) for too long. I’ll see if I can open it now so I can donate.
I have one question though. Does http remote download files to my pc first and then upload? It seems whatever I tried I can’t pass 100kb/s. Default 4 transfers work best with pcloud.com. I tried to increase transfers, run multiple instances of rclone with separate --files-from lists, etc. it always comes down to 100kb/s. I don’t know if it’s pcloud.com limit or rclone limit, but my internet upload speed is 100kb/s so I come to the conclusion that it’s limit on my part?
Regardless, being able to skip directory listing is a great feature to have and I’m sure I’ll use it many times in future. I work in ecommerce field, and suppliers often give us direct links to images but directory listing usually disabled.
glad it worked! I’ll work on tidying the code up and getting it merged to master, but really glad it worked for you!
Yes all rclone transfers will come through your PC so that explains it perfectly. What people often do is if they have loads of stuff to transfer is rent a cloud server for a few hours and transfer it there.
