Hi, i want to move a lot of files, and folders to another folder on the same (S3) remote, but i don't know how.
-The official web gui of the remote provider is useless.
rclone mount remote:/ ~/cloud/ --buffer-size=256M --vfs-fast-fingerprint -v on linux machine, moved with the supplied filebrowser, but it freezed for minutes while Copied (server-side copy) to:+deleted pairs appeared, not actual move. needed to sigterm rclone after minutes to make something happen.
-rclone move works only one by one
about that rated answer, not sure it is relevant to your situation, as that is using a filter.
i think i read something about aws does some server side trickery to reduce the total number of files that need to be iterated, copied and deleted.
as far as i know, s3 move is copy+delete, or try --magic
aws s3 mv s3://zork.movetest/source s3://zork.movetest/dest --recursive --exclude "*" --include "*.txt"
move: s3://zork.movetest/source/01.txt to s3://zork.movetest/dest/01.txt
move: s3://zork.movetest/source/02.txt to s3://zork.movetest/dest/02.txt
move: s3://zork.movetest/source/03.txt to s3://zork.movetest/dest/03.txt
when i run that same command with --debug,
for each file, there is a put and delete. here is a log snippet
