Question about file versioning

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I want o know If I can make a backup of my files with file versioning, on google account, If i make
rclone copyto "d:\folder" drive:/ and it copy file "test.txt"

Can I do it with a crypted mount drive??

Can later restore an older version of the file test.txt??

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

Latest version

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

Windows 10 and ubuntu 16.4

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 copyto "d:\folder" drive:/

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)


I think you can do it via rcat on individual files. Like this

cat file.txt | rclone rcat drive:folder\file.txt

Each time you run that, it will create a new version.

I don't think this is quite what you wanted but might work for you. You can't do that with the mount. The mount will just read the latest version.

The recommended way of doing this with rclone would be to use --backup-dir which works with all backends. Check out the docs here:
