How to know the full size / file count of a folder that "rclone copies"?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Not a problem but a question.
I am in the process of copying quite high amount of data back from my cloud storage to a local storage...
The problem is that I actually have no clue what the size of my google drive folder I am syncing is.

Therefore, the copy sometimes stops, and I have to buy and add a hard drive to my local array.

So, here is my question :

Is there a way to get rclone to check ALL files upfront a copy ? So I would be sure how much data still needs to be copied to my local array ?

For now it does it little by little... which is not most convenient scenario when you are copying hundreds of terrabytes :wink:

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.59.1

  • os/version: slackware 15.0 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.15.46-Unraid (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.18.5
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

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)

A simple :

rclone copy gdrive:stuff /local/dir/ --progress --tpslimit 4 -v

THANKS ! :slight_smile:

I am pretty sure --dry-run -v will tell you at the end :slight_smile:

Description here

ah yes a dry run will tell the total amount of files at the end without copying anything. Geez I did not think about this.

Still it would be nice to have the option to know the total amount of files before a copy starts, this to have an idea of the % of files that remains to be copied ! :wink:

I guess --check-fist will do that :wink:
