I have a problem with rclone dedupe, maybe I don't understand how it works.
I want to download files from google drive. There are files with identical names on the disk.
This may seem silly, but I want to keep google drive structure and download po files even though the names are the same.
I understand that in windows NTFS there is no way for files to have the same name, so DEDUPE comes to the rescue.
"C:\rclone\rclone.exe" dedupe rename "xxx:" -P --log-file=E:\_GoogleDrive\_LOGS\xxx_DEDUPE.txt --log-level DEBUG
2022/11/27 12:16:44 NOTICE: xxx/TR-470-09-2021.pdf: Found 2 files with duplicate names 2022/11/27 12:16:44 NOTICE: xxx/TR-470-09-2021.pdf: Deleting 1/2 identical duplicates (md5 da5d9fa7c46a01f9dad585fef4a086c7) 2022/11/27 12:16:45 INFO : xxx/TR-470-09-2021.pdf: Deleted 2022/11/27 12:16:45 NOTICE: xxx/TR-470-09-2021.pdf: All duplicates removed
I use the "rename" flag which theoretically should rename the duplicate by adding "(1)" rather than deleting the file.
Rclone dedupe wiki says "--dedupe-mode rename- delete identical files, then rename the rest to something else."
Is there a configuration that will not delete files?
