Possible to delay a task until a specific time?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I would like to setup a task to be run later. Specifically, I would like to download a folder from an encrypted remote to a folder on my local machine. Ideally, I would like to add an argument in Rclone Browser. Something along the lines of: "--delay 300M". Is this possible?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.58.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 20H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19042.1586 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.8
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy Crypt_Disk:Linux ISOs F:\Linux ISOs

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = [redacted]
client_secret = [redacted]
scope = drive
token = [redacted]
team_drive = 

type = crypt
remote = gdrive:/crypt
password = [redacted]
password2 = [redacted]

not sure about rclonebrowser.

could write a simple batch script, call it delay.cmd

timeout /t 18000
rclone copy Crypt_Disk:Linux ISOs F:\Linux ISOs

Thanks for the reply.

When I run this script, a timer appears in a cmd window. However, after the timer is finished, the cmd window closes and nothing transfers. Am I missing a step? Thanks!

well, no, as that is how that script works.
after rclone has finished, the window exits.

try this, and the cmd window will not close

timeout /t 18000
rclone copy Crypt_Disk:Linux ISOs F:\Linux ISOs

This works! Thank you!!
