There is lots of stuff in there certainly! I'm sorry this release is so long since the last stable release. I'm going to try to get them out every 2 months from now on...

Hi,
I was asking few months ago about option, details are here:

and I wonder if that has been added or it is on to do list.
regards

thanks for this big update and the many improvements!
The new metric counter for deleted directories rclone_dirs_deleted_total is really good for my grafana dashboard. Now I can see that a file OR a folder was deleted.

I think this is the relevant issue: https://github.com/rclone/rclone/issues/157

Yeah that is it. So as far as I understood feature is still in development ?

@lostheli, @ncw: you are mind readers of future needs. I just really needed rclone hashsum MD5 aws_s3_compatible:bucket --download (to the point that I was going to do a script with Python for my usage quickly). I saw it on rclone online help, I didn't work with my rclone v.1.53... and it's just released. Thanks very much! :slight_smile:

I'm testing it: [quote="carles, post:10, topic:22051"]
rclone hashsum MD5 aws_s3_compatible:bucket --download
[/quote]
I suspect that it downloads the files sequentially. Ideally I would like in parallel. For some of my buckets we have many, many small files and it would be great al in parallel. Not a big deal, when it finishes these directories it should speed up :slight_smile: if there is a hidden flag or version somewhere let me know of course! :slight_smile:

Checking with --progress it seems that files are downloaded in parallel, so all good! I might increase the number of simultaneous files for one of the buckets but... SUPER! :100:

We are still thinking about MD5 sum files and how we might fit them in.

Yes it should download them in parallel; how many is set with --transfers.

Glad you are finding this useful :slight_smile:

good news :grinning:
where can i find the document for the feature “ *This will enable passing of global config via the rc”?
another question, Are the two or more config from rc independent ?

I didn't quite manage to merge that feature yet.

I will merge it in a few days. You'll be able to pass _config into the rc.

You can see more here in this unmerged commit

Yes, the config will just be for that rc session.

Great job. Thanks for your endless efforts!

I don't think it's a good solution。
Backend should be similar to Windows service,not just hide the window。
I also have such application scenarios,and use another application(NSSM)address my needs

Well it is a solution, but maybe not the best one

Hmm, so make a version of rclone which can run as a Windows service? Not a bad idea!

For mount, it kind of is already.. You simply have to register it with PowerShell command New-Service. Think it gets the service integration from the WinFsp library, but have not tested it enough yet to say more about how it behaves.
