So, I am new to rclone (literally just started using yesterday). I setup this script to backup to my google drive. My question is, if I run the same script again, will it backup everything again, or just changes and new files? I need it just to upload changes and new files.
rclone copy D:\Music GDrive:\DESKTOP-NH3JT7K/Music --log-file=C:\logs\rclonecopy.txt --log-level DEBUG
rclone copy D:\Personal GDrive:\DESKTOP-NH3JT7K/Music --log-file=C:\logs\rclonecopy.txt --log-level DEBUG
it should backup only the most recently changed files.
but there is another kind of backup, a forever forward incremental backup.
each time you run it, it keeps the latest files in the current folder.
and older files that would have been overwritten are moved the the archive folder.
I'm backing up a folder that is about 185GB. I started almost 12 hours ago and it is giving me an ETA of 8 more hours. It is uploading at about 2MB/s. On average I have a download of 103mb/s and 26mb/s, so I know I don't have tons of upload to play with, but this seems way slower than it should be. I am using my own API key as well. Is this the correct speed, or am I doing something wrong?
Sorry I am just responding, here is the speedtest:
I did not log the upload this time around, but I was watching my command prompt throughout every once in a while and there were no errors listed with the --verbose flag that I used, although my father updated our router during the process, so it did have errors then, but it basically paused. The reason I used the flags I did, is because I found a few posts where people with google drive said those settings worked for them, and they had similar bandwidth and resources as I do. I live in the US.
He has been busy so I neglected to tell him I was uploading data. Not the best idea, I know. Granted I didn't expect it to take this long, or for the router to need to be updated. It is a ubiquiti unifi router. Not sure the make and model but I know it's not old.
