Questions about server-side and dropbox

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Trying to change filename encryption schema from base32 to base32768, using server-side but keep getting paced down to around a file a second. Am I missing something? async batching doesn't seem to help.

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

rclone v1.63.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22621.1992 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.20.6
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

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


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

rclone move "dropboxenc:" "dropboxenc32768:" -vvvv -P --server-side-across-configs --transfers 5 --fast-list

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = dropbox
token token_type
client_id = 
client_secret = 

type = crypt
remote = dropbox:Encrypted
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password =
password2 = 

type = crypt
remote = dropbox:Encrypted32768
filename_encoding = base32768
directory_name_encryption = true
password = 
password2 = 

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

Add --tpslimit 12 --tpslimit-burst 0 to your command to prevent dropbox throttling
