What is the problem you are having with rclone?

No problems, just a question. I'm working on transfering data from the cloud storage (google drive/dropbox) of my plex server down to my newly built local unraid plex server. I have gdrive and dropbox mounted via rclone so i'm essentially just copying from one folder location on the server to another. Is it necessary/worth it, to make sure that traffic goes through a vpn? I don't want to have any issues with my isp. I have a ton of data to copy down (70+tb) and want to make sure i'm not gonna get flagged or anything.

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

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


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

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

A log from the command that you were trying to run with the -vv flag

Transfers to/from Dropbox/Gdrive are encrypted. Your ISP can not monitor what content you are transferring.

Thank you for your response. I really appreciate the help!
