Sorry if this has been asked and answered before
But I have searched the forum and found nothing that matches what I want to ask
So my question is,how do you upload text files (.txt) to Google Drive as google docs format?
I have tried to add the extension .txt to import-formats during the initial config
After configuration,I just use a regular simple copy command to copy to Gdrive,however the files are uploaded as .txt files,no conversion is done
I have tested with uploading with web frontend and it works perfectly
A workaround I found is rename the files to .docx and of course add the extension to import-formats as well before uploading with rclone
But there are some text files that doesn’t upload as docx format for some reasons
Is there any solution for this?
I suppose it should be very easy to work with but I am very new to rclone
Sorry for a silly question here
Any help will be appreciated
I think you might need
--drive-allow-import-name-change as well as
-drive-import-formats txt - can you give that a go?
I am on my mobile and will be back to home to test soon
I will report the result here
Thanks in advance!
Just tried this and it doesn’t work unfortunately,the files are still uploaded as .txt files
This is the command I run
Do you have any other ideas?
It looks like there is a bug importing
Try this potential fix
https://beta.rclone.org/branch/v1.46.0-055-g9f8e1a1d-fix-drive-import-beta/ (uploaded in 15-30 mins)
You’ll still need the
--drive-allow-import-name-change --drive-import-formats txt flags
This updated binary works great
Thank you very much for your help!
Thanks for testing
I’ve merged this to master now which means it will be in the latest beta in 15-30 mins and released in v1.47
