Is there a default log location? I forgot to specify --log-file

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have run an rclone sync without explicitly logging - but I want to see what was deleted if possible. Are there any logs generated and saved by default? Where can I find them if they exist?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.59.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home 21H1 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19043.1826 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.18.5
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

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

None - local drive to local drive

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

rclone sync -i D:\_Projects F:\Personal\_ProjectsBackup\_Projects```

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

No config - was local to local

A log from the command with the -vv flag

I don't know how to do this retroactively

hello and welcome to the forum,

logs are not generated by default.

as per
"Log all of rclone's output to FILE. This is not active by default"

to find the differences between source and dest, might try
rclone check

might try --magic :wink:

Gotcha. In my case comparing the source to the dest probably won't help since I really should never have run a sync and instead just copied (ooopsie). Anyway, thanks for the help!

for ooopsie protection,
