What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Windows Server 2016 - 64 bit

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

hello and welcome to the forum,

if you want a very simple file copy, then use rclone, can be as simple as
rclone copy source dest

be aware that it lacks many basic features, one would expect to find for a server to server copy.
rclone cannot copy directory time stamps between source and dest.
limitations for copying file and folder security permissions from source to dest
lack a backup mode.
perhaps most important on windows server, cannot copy files in EFS RAW mode.
for that you would need robocopy
