Rclone comparing hashes without downloading

Hey guys

Could someone inform me on how Rclone compares hashes of files on the remote without downloading the entire file?

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

Rclone Version: v1.56.0

Remote: Google Drive

hello and welcome to the forum,

when rclone uploads a file, gdrive calculates the hash and stores it as metadata.
most storage systems do that.

Thanks :+1:

Are you able to view or extract the hashes generated by Google Drive?

Use rclone md5sum remote: to see them.



Thanks Nick :pray:
