It depends on your setup. Are you mounting the remote partition and writing the file directly to the folder? Then it would be automatically uploaded.

Otherwise if you have a local file being generated each hour that you want to sync to a remote cloud provider, you would need to make a cron to run a rclone move/copy/sync (depending on your needs) to move the file over.

We need more information on what you are trying to do to help.

let's say i'm writing the file to folder "A" and I want the program to automatically move the file from folder A to the remote folder. how do I enable this, monitoring? it could be a time sequence using cron but this machine is windows there is no crontab to use. does rclone has cron function on its own?

You'd use Windows task scheduler to schedule an hourly job.
