Total newbie for rclone here, so this is hopefully a simple question. I've been using rclone to replicate my Dropbox in Google Drive. Thanks in advance for the support!
I've copied files successfully over the course of a few days, but in the meantime I have been modifying and creating files in Dropbox. I want to make sure the files in Google Drive are updated to mirror Dropbox without initiating the whole transfer again.
I've read of multiple ways to do this, but I'm conscious that I need to get it right the first time otherwise I may end up deleting my Google Drive files and starting again. I believe I could potentially use:
- The exact same command as I have run below. Because --update is included this may have the desired outcome, where files that are in Google Drive and are identical to Dropbox will not be touched/re-copied, but new files will be copied and modified files will be overwritten with the new version
- Using sync instead of copy. I'm not sure if this will work directly after the copy, or how I should structure the sync command given what I have already copied
os/version: debain 11.8 (64 bit)
os/kernel: 5.10.0-26-cloud-amd64 (x86_64)
Dropbox and Google Drive
rclone copy --update --tpslimit 4 --transfers 4 --checkers 4 --verbose dropbox: gdrive:/DROPBOX --log-file rclone.log & disown
Please run 'rclone config redacted' and share the full output. If you get command not found, please make sure to update rclone.
type = dropbox
token = XXX
type = drive
scope = drive
token = XXX

Unsure of what to do here
