What is the problem you are having with rclone?
how can I mount a synced clone of the remote on my local storage while excluding some certain remote directories from the sync?
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
Sorry if this question is a bit general, I'm new to rclone so I've read the documentation and I know somehow that I probably have to use a combination of the "mount" and the "filter" commands. However, under neither of these topics in the documentation, I can find the link between the two, or some examples.
Also the documentation on filters is a bit hard to follow, for example, at one point it says: " A
* matches anything but not a
/ ", and then in the examples below it, there's this example:
matches "directory/file.jpg". Also filters seem to be very much related to excluding the "files" or at least it's not explicitly explained how one can exclude whole directories and their content. I only need to mount my whole Google Drive on a local point with some directories(which are heavy) being excluded.
I also couldn't do trial and error because I wasn't sure if these were the commands I needed to use at all... .
What is your rclone version (output from
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.14.4
Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)
Ubuntu Focal Fossa 64bit
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
