Move a clone one level so the destination and data is in a different location

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I created a regular clone called Media: It sits as a Folder (Media) on my Google Drive
I created a Crypt Clone called FamilyMedia: It sits within my Media folder (Media/Family Media) far so good
I created a Crypt Clone called Music: but I accidentally made it at the same level as Media instead of within the Media Folder. I uploaded a lot of files there already. Is it possible to "move" the Music: clone so that it points to Media/Music AND have all of the data move with it? And them be in the right place moving forward?

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

rclone v1.57.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 1909 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.18363.900 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.2
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount


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)

No command...That is why I am here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Sorry, I do not know where that lives.  If needed, point me to it's location and I will retrieve it.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

No log created

The easiest way to do this is to move the crypted folder in the google drive web interface into the right place. It should be pretty obvious which one it is as it will be a long string of alphanumeric characters.

If you then update the remote in the Music: (edit the config file in a text editor, or you can edit it with rclone config) and update the path to have the extra Media part in.
