Panic: Dropbox crypt cant see data

I used rewind function on dropbox, because some of the data was accidentally deleted.

Now I cant see my encrypted files.

rclone lsd dropbox:crypt

rclone lsd dropboxcrypt:
does not show any results

I have a copy of data on Gdrive

rclone lsd gdrive:crypt
          -1 2017-06-10 22:07:04        -1 0ibcad98vheukutqb6r435td0c
          -1 2017-02-02 08:16:19        -1 hm2ka8or5qp1pefhtc1e62jn50

          -1 2017-02-22 06:00:10        -1 rijbp68ecdsepkm033j05hjoos

And here i can see DATA :

rclone lsd gdrivecrypt:
          -1 2017-06-10 22:07:04        -1 4K-movies
          -1 2017-02-02 08:16:19        -1 movies

          -1 2017-02-22 06:00:10        -1 tmp
[dropbox]
type = dropbox
app_key = 
app_secret = 
token = REDACTED

[dropboxcrypt]
type = crypt
remote = dropbox:/crypt
filename_encryption = standard
password = REDACTED
password2 = REDACTED

Data on Dropbox and Gdrive and exact copies ( same encryption password ) so if i change my [dropboxcrypt] remote to gdrive files/folders are shown.

..

I have no clue what could be wrong since folders files are exactly the same on both drives.

@ncw any idea what could be wrong ( i tested with latest stable and beta version )

Try removing / here - with dropbox biz, /crypt refers to a shared folder not a folder in your home directory.

hi,
i was going to suggest the same, and had started to write a reply to the OP.

then i noticed that rclone removed that slash.
renaming cache item "dropbox:/crypt" to be canonical "dropbox:crypt"

Hmm I removed the / and now data is shown .. this is weird since it worked for past few years

yes, strange results.

maybe the problem started after upgrading to v1.59.0?

Its possible it started with 1.59 and i did not notice it at first when updated rclone as i have dropbox and gdrive connected with unionfs

That would mean the renaming cache item "dropbox:/crypt" to be canonical "dropbox:crypt" does not work at least with dropbox since it worked with gdrive.

This is the name that the backend has in the backend cache so is not related to normal operations. It shouldn't be renaming it like that, but fixing it will make no difference to your problem.

I don't think this behaviour has changed in the dropbox backend for a long time - the initial / for shared drives was implemented in 1.42

If I add / the files are not showing on dropbox but they do with gdrive .

The dropbox backend and the google drive backend work differently here
