Rclone copy to spaces doesnt consider checksum


I’m trying to copy some files from my droplet to my spaces. It is important for me to not copy same files again. I’m using --checksum flag for that purpose, However my files are copied again and again.

rclone copy  somefile.tar remote:/myspace/path/ --checksum

Is there anything I’m missing?

If you look at logs with -vv rclone will tell you exactly why it is copying the files. Post them here if you need help interpreting them.

2018/05/22 08:26:39 INFO  : video.mp4: Copied (new)
2018/05/22 08:26:39 INFO  :

I’m checking both file mtime and they are exactly the same

Ah, I see!

I think the / after the : is the problem. Either upgrade to the latest beta or remove the / to make the command

rclone copy  somefile.tar remote:myspace/path/ --checksum
