How to perform normal (drive.files.create) uploads using rclone?

I see your post here about normal uploads vs server side uploads...

You mention that rclone can do both. Would you be able to elaborate on that a little? I’m having trouble finding documentation on that.

Also: as you can see I am new to the forum. I apologize if this isn’t the right way to find information regarding this. The old post was locked and I didn’t see a way to message you so I made a new post.

If u r copying folder or directory where source and destination are of the same google drive id...
Then it is said to be serverside copy.

And if u will use two different gdrive id then it will be normal copy

If destination has access to source then server side copy also works. You have make sure that it has view access. Use --drive-server-side-across-configs to achieve that.

rclone copy src: dst: --fast-list --drive-server-side-across-configs -vv

It is good. ..:slightly_smiling_face:

I understand now. Thank you for your help.
