How to list hidden folders with FTP

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have several FTP mounts setup with RClone, but I've been unable to figure out how to get it to list hidden folders. I know FTP clients such as Filezilla have an option that enables showing hidden folders, so is there a way to do this with RClone?

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

rclone v1.58.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 21H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19044.1889 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.9
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

It's an Unraid server on my local network with FTP enabled.

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclon.exe mount UnraidFTP:/mnt/user/media X: --vfs-cache-mode writes --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off --volname UnraidMedia --file-perms 0666 --dir-perms 0777 --poll-interval 1m --dir-cache-time 72h --config "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\rclone\rclone.conf"

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = ftp
host = tower
port = 21

And before anyone comments on it, I know I should switch to SFTP, but I haven't bothered to do that before I can get this hidden folder issue fixed, because I need it to work for FTP/SFTP to be a viable solution for my setup.

Seems it is not supported by the library used:

I guess I'll have to try to fix that then.


If someone happens to stumble upon this thread, support for this was just merged:

This should be released in 1.60
