Limit rclone access of Dropbox to the App folder?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I would like to limit the access and scope of rclone only to an Dropbox App folder like all other Dropbox app do and not the whole folder. The Google Drive implementation of rclone does allow that. Why not Dropbox as this is the default behaviour of Dropbox Apps.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.56.0

  • os/version: darwin 11.5.2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 20.6.0 (x86_64)
  • os/type: darwin
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.6
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: none

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


hello and welcome to the forum,

that is documented at
"3. Choose the type of access you want to use => Full Dropbox or App Folder"

Cool! Would be great if this is the default if a user adds a new rclone config for dropbox to limit the damage if something goes wrong imho
