Is it possible to setup rclone with a pcloud 's subfolder instead of its root folder (for restriction purpose)?

Is it possible to setup rclone with pcloud under a subfolder instead of root folder?


You can use it with a subfolder usingpcloud:subfolder

Perhaps what you want is an alias so you can say mybackup: which is aliased to pcloud:backupfolder?

Thanks. I am looking for way to restrict a particular machine’s access to a subfolder when using rclone, not the whole root. Any idea?

As ncw noted above, you can just use pcloud:somefolder and that restricts access to that folder.

May be I misread it. Do I use “pcloud:somefolder” during the setup?

15 / Pcloud
\ “pcloud”
16 / QingCloud Object Storage
\ “qingstor”
17 / SSH/SFTP Connection
\ “sftp”
18 / Yandex Disk
\ “yandex”
19 / http Connection
\ “http”
Storage> pcloud:somefolder
Pcloud App Client Id - leave blank normally.
Pcloud App Client Secret - leave blank normally.
Remote config
Use auto config?

  • Say Y if not sure
  • Say N if you are working on a remote or headless machine
    y) Yes
    n) No
    y/n> y

That is possible in some backends (eg google drive, backblaze b2) but not with pcloud at the moment.

Is pcloud itself capable of restricting access to one directory?

How secure do you need it to be?

You seem to be right, I could not seem to find it in the API doc. However, its API web interface seems to imply we can specify folder? Something related to folder id in the doc?
I dunno.

Thanks for the reply though!

Ah, OK! So if you set up a client_id and a client_secret and put those into rclone does it work?
