What is the problem you are having with rclone?
local remote home dir cannt be chosen
What is your rclone version (output from
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone ls local:
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
type = local

I need to upload huge file to network drive with unstable connection. My plan is to create a chunker remote on this network drive. As the first step I try to create local remote, that will be the base for chunker. I use Windows and rlone 1.56.0.
When I create local remote throug config I see no option to set network share as the home dir for it. Is it possible to do in config?
Currently local remote points to my windows user home dir instead of desired network drive so i see no option to create a chunker on network drive.
Any suggestons how otherway can I create a chunker remote on network drive?
Found a reply for changing local remote home dir - use alias remote
unfortunatelly, if I try to use chunker over this alias remote it still loos inside windows user home dir.
type = alias
remote = H:\import
nounc = true
type = chunker
remote = NetShare
chunk_size = 10Mi
hash_type = md5all
rclone.exe copy C:\Users\Vito\Downloads\exporttoShare\ chunker: -vv

Thanks a lot, it works now.
Great! It is an easy mistake to make: Without the colon, rclone treats the value as a local, relative path - in your case subfolder
NetShare from your current working directory.
