Moved/renamed files not reflected on remote after a sync

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

On my local sync I have moved the locations of some files. When I sync I want the remote to have it moved also. But its not moving it on the remote.
For example if I moved a.txt to folder/a.txt on my local and then I run a sync a.txt is still in the root and not in folder/ on my remote. I tested this locally and moving the files reflected on the destination. Can someone help me?

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

rclone v1.58.1

  • os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 4.19.104-microsoft-standard (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.9
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

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)

/usr/bin/rclone sync -v --ignore-case-sync --delete-before "$drive_local" "$drive_remote"

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive
team_drive = 

A log from the command with the -vv flag

<file> is used to refer to all of my files. I dont want to put the name because its sensitive

That's telling you nothing changed and it already exists on the remote.

Without seeing some specifics, it's tough to guess.
