MacOS Automate Rclone Sync

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm trying to see if it's possible to setup an automation to have Rclone sync with from google drive to a local hard drive.

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

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

Google Drive

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

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

sure, that is possible.
the first step is to create and test a gdrive remote as documented here

Okay, I already have that step done. What would be next?

what is the name of the remote?


a simple sync command would be
rclone sync gdrivemediacrypt: /path/to/local/dir -vv --dry-run

Can you be more clear what you mean? Do you want it to sync every X hours? Or after ever change?

A time-based one is easily done on macOS with crontab. Every change is harder and not really suggested.

Preferably after every change but I can settle for every hour or so.
