I have a question about a file transfer.
for now I use the option retry = 1, but there is little possibility to optimize it, finally hope ^^
I have a folder that contains files for writing, one of them weighs 200 GB!
this implies a send, but which will not be validated in the end, despite wasted bandwidth.
unfortunately, its name changes, and it's not the only file of this size.
in my case I can not filter on the size, nor on the name, but just on the fact that it is being modified. a regular scan on the size a simple cheksum will allow to detect this during the sending and to stop the transfer. but is it possible?
I must merge 2 folders (Local linux => Google Drive), knowing that there are identical files (Hash), and that the name can differ, is it possible to avoid a transfer if the file is already present ( Hash)?
If a file is being modified, it should not be transferred as it would say it's being written to and error on that file.
You can check by running the command with "-vv" and look at the output.
rclone uses a few methods. Google drive supports a checksum (on a non encrypted remote) so it would use that to compare along with file size / date and time. You can many options to compare files as you can use just size, just time or just the checksum.
what I am trying to do, is a verification of the size / modification date / checksum during the transfer in order to avoid continuing it knowing that it will necessarily be different from the source ...
