Multiple identical syncs corrupts data?

I have a NAS.

I'm thinking about running rclone sync on two separate servers, using the same NAS as the source, and same cloud as the destination.

Will that corrupt the data? (I'm thinking it will if both rclones are sending the same file)
Does rclone create any locks to ensure the same file isn't being synced on the destination side?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.1

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.15

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Ubuntu 20.04

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


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

server1: rclone sync /local/path remote:path
server2: rclone sync /local/path remote:path

If you are uploading to a cloud service like Google Drive then files either arrive or don't arrive so it won't corrupt things.

No it doesn't.

This is a recipe for copying all the files twice!

I'm not sure I'd do this, but at least run the syncs at different times!
