Is rclone adding a * to my encrypted folders or is BackBlaze?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Some of my uploaded folders have a * at the end of the folder name. I can't figure out what it means. Maybe I am not searching for the right string but I don't see any relevant mention of asterisk in rclone or BB docs.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.3
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.15.5

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

Debian 10 x64

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

BackBlaze B2

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)


The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = b2
account = ...
key = ...

type = crypt
remote = bb:...
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = ...
password2 = ...

A log from the command with the -vv flag


when you posted, there was a template asking for information...

Fixed. My bad! Thank you!

well, that was easy....

I mean I just had to edit the question and paste the template. Easy enough.

I still can't figure out why some files/folders have a *.

can you post an example using rclone ls -vv

Looks like it was a versioning thing. I did a rclone cleanup and now all the * files are gone.
