Pcloud to google drive downloading locally

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am trying to migrate from pcloud to google drive, I thought I could transfer files from remote to remote without downloading them first. Is this possible with rclone or am I doing something wrong? This is the command I am trying:

rclone copy --progress pcloud: gdrive:

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

  • os/arch: windows/386
  • go version: go1.12.10

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Windows 10 64bit

I am pretty sure that won't be possible.
Server-side copying is possible in some cases, but it usually needs to be from for example one google system to another. I haven't heard of it being done between two unrelated services.
I may be wrong on this - but at least I am not aware of this being possible.

If it's a lot of data and you don't have much bandwidth then it's always an option to go make a minimal VM on GCP and transfer it via this. Importing to Gdrive you can do this either free or at a trivial cost depending on the setup you prefer (it can be done on as little as a microinstance VM).

You cant move from pcloud to gdrive. Only gdrive to gdrive without download locally.

But.. If you use some service like multcloud can do it.

Thanks for the clarification guys,I rented a server and did the transfer.

Yes. With vultr, you can rent by hour :slight_smile:
