Rclone copy encrypt never ends even after all files are transferred

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Rclone copy never ends and the file size left to transfer keeps increasing. The files I have in my google drive folder are exactly 1.493 GB or 2471 files, and I have exactly that in the folder I asked Rclone to copy into, but it's still transferring and never ends.

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

rclone v1.58.1

  • os/version: arch "rolling" (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.18.7-arch1-1 (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.18.1
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: none

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

rclone copy archive_crypt:/~/Archive/screenshots/ /run/media/home/mypendrive/rclonetest

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
scope = drive
token = 
team_drive =

type = crypt
remote = archive:/arhchive
filename_encryption = obfuscate
directory_name_encryption = false

A log from the command with the -vv flag

2022/07/02 14:42:51 INFO  : 2021-09-02 12.57.05.jpg: Copied (replaced existing)

The current transferred size is 3.623 GiB/4.169 Gib
I only have 1.5 Gib in the Google Drive and it has copied exactly that in the pendrive. I'm not sure why it keeps going. I am going to close the terminal now because I have all the files.

You'd have to run the command with -vv and share the log as you'll see why something is being replaced in the log file.

This is probably due to times (the debug log would show for certain) - the pen drive is likely running vfat which has timestamps only accurate to 2 seconds IIRC.

Adding --modify-window 2s would probably fix it.
