What is the problem you are having with rclone?
vfs/refresh API call with a directory name that includes ampersand ("&") does not translate, even with urlencode %26
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
- os/version: alpine 3.15.0 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 4.15.0-50-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.7
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: none
Are you on the latest version of rclone? You can validate by checking the version listed here: Rclone downloads
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 with the
"Life \u0026 Beth": "file does not exist"
The directory is called "Life & Beth" (without quotes) but urlencode of %26 doesn't seem to work. Seems like only %26 is being translated to \u0026, %2F for example is translating to "/".
I think that
\u0026 is a valid encoding for
& in JSON
>>> "Life \u0026 Beth"
'Life & Beth'
So I think it is OK.
When I try this on a test directory
'Life & Beth'
rclone mount -vv --rc --rc-no-auth . /mnt/tmp/
$ curl -X POST -vv http://localhost:5572/vfs/refresh?dir=Life%20%26%20Beth

"Life \u0026 Beth": "OK"
It works for me.
