I am syncing a large (10+ GB) file to Google Drive. I have a slow connection so it’ll take a while.
I was wondering if there is a way to pause
rclone and then unpause later?
I know I can cancel the sync and then restart it but since
rclone doesn’t support incremental uploads every time I cancel and restart it will have to start over.
I know in Linux I can pause (
stop) a process but I don’t know enough about
rclone to know how nicely it’ll play.
If you are uploading a large file to drive, it will be uploading it in segments. So if you STOP the process, you’ll probably lose 1 segment and it will restart when you CONT the process.
That is what I’d like to think would happen anyway Let us know what does happen if you try it!
Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case. I'm on a connection that resets every 60 mins and unfortunately the file I am working with takes about 70 minutes to transfer so I've had several attempts fail at about ~80-90% completion.
