Ok, let me try to understand this:
--fast-list only works on directory trees, not individual folders.
so it doesn’t help if rclone request to list all files in a specific folder. But it would help to get the directoy tree.
If i have the follwowing structure
— --- file.a
— --- file.b
— --- file.c
— --- file.d
— --- file.e
— --- aca
— --- — file.f
— --- — file.g
it will use
fast-list to get
— --- aca
and then request the files in the folders? So 1 api hit for
fast-list plus 4 api hist to get the files in the folders?
But if i just use mount and list the files (for example via
find .) it will use 5 API hits to get all files. The only difference is it will be faster to get the directory tree with
fast-list (when having complex/big trees) than iterating through all folders (which rclone has to do even than, because it needs the files in the folder?)
I am not quite sure i understand
fast-list … Is there any documentation outside of rclone to help me get an understanding of this conecpt?
