Pcloud dedupe support?

does pcloud not support the dedupe or am I doing something wrong here?? why is not scanning all my files? seems to just stop/finish without doing anything

What it should have done is listed your files. It seemed to take 59 seconds doing it which doesn't sound in unreasonable.

It didn't find any files with exactly the same names by the looks of it.

I didn’t see it say scanning files etc? Also I thought it used md5, not just names??

the latest beta can dedupe by hash.

run rclone dedupe --help and this is a snippet of the output

"if --by-hash is passed in then dedupe will find files with
duplicate hashes instead which will work on any backend which supports
at least one hash. This can be used to find files with duplicate
content. This is known as deduping by hash."

Thanks I’ll give the beta a try - what’s the eta for main release of that feature?

only the shadow knows and perhaps ncw

End of Jan for 1.54 is the target.
