What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I purge some information and then i click cancel , by the looks of it seems to me that all the infomation is there however i would like to generate a log to see what files were deleted and from which archive.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
os/kernel: 5.4.0-166-generic (x86_64)
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
Paste command here
Please run 'rclone config redacted' and share the full output. If you get command not found, please make sure to update rclone.
Paste config here
A log from the command that you were trying to run with the -vv flag
rclone purge detailed behaviour depends on the remote. In most cases it utilizes a remote API call to delete all tree from a given point. It does not list all content recursively deleting objects one by one - for that there is another specific command: rclone delete. This is why purge can be many times faster than delete - but it comes at the cost that it can not be granular - you can not use filters to exclude anything from it for example.
Good analogy for local filesystem is rm -rf dir vs. cd dir; rm *. If dir contains a lot of files the former command will be many time faster, but latter allows to delete only specific file e.g. rm *.jpg - at the cost of time taken for listing every single file
Im asking this because i hit rclone purge "some bucket" but it ran like 2 seconds and then i hit control c very fast and from what i notice its that it deleted some files from one archive out of the 5 archives that i have tthere with several information.
i think that the best bet here is either to donwload everything from that bucket once again or either to compare it from the the original source and see if everything its in there.
I also want to understand that any objects that are there that were not deleted are integral since im using a object based storage that is an idrive s3.
