Rclone config wiped out

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I was performing a backup from local drive to google drive when my computer froze and I had to force reboot. After reboot, I tried running the backup again, but this time it says it couldn't parse. Upon checking, my config file is now empty. Is there any way to retrieve my config file? There is no config.backup file anywhere, I've read some cases where that could help.

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

rclone v1.51.0

  • os/arch: windows/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.7

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

Google Drive

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

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Config is now blank

Only noticed this after restart when I tried to run a backup batch file, and got the error:
2022/11/18 15:26:03 Failed to load config file "C:\\Users\\PlexHome\\.config\\rclone\\rclone.conf": could not parse line:          

A log from the command with the -vv flag

2022/11/18 15:26:03 Failed to load config file "C:\\Users\\PlexHome\\.config\\rclone\\rclone.conf": could not parse line:          

No magic really.

You'd have to recreate if you have no backup copy anywhere.

might be in the recycle bin.
