I’ve got a quick question.
I had an exclude file for --exclude-from with contents:
which worked fine. I now decided to include only one dir instead of exclude what I have right now.
Therefore created a file for --include-from with contents:
However, it doesn’t seem to work. Only if I use photos/**
Why is this?
rclone filters work on the whole path name.
photos/ will match a directory called
photos anywhere in the directory path. so it will match
However it won’t match
/a/photos/a.jpg - you need the
** to match everything including / characters.
I suspect you want
/photos/** which will match the directory in the root
photos and everything under it.
I expect you are now wondering why in your --exclude-from example
tmp worked when what you really wanted was
tmp/**? That is a consequence of rclone optimizing the directory access and not recursing into tmp because it was excluded.
I agree it isn’t entirely consistent though!
