Question on how sync handles moved files

Hi all

I'm in the process of updating my set-up and I had a question on how rclone sync handles files that have been moved on the remote dir? If I run a sync with a local directory and I have moved a number of files from subdir1 to subdir2 in my remote, will it re-download the moved files or will it know to move the files locally?

If it does just move the files, how does it know/identify moved files? If the files/subfolders have been renamed, will it still know to move the files?

The remote in question is Google Drive, in case this is relevant.

Thanks for your help!

If you supply the --track-renames flag it will move the files locally.

By hashes by default, but you can configure this with --track-renames-strategy

Yes it will.
