I'm just simply curious about these two commands, and which is more effective.
Using Google Drive, I tried each command on two seperate accounts. Each folder, on each account had roughly 1TB of data:
rclone purge "gdrive1:Folder A"
rclone delete "gdrive2:Folder A"
The purge command was literally instant. The delete command is taking alot longer to finish.
I'm curious what differentiates the two commands.
rclone purge just move the folder and contents to the trash, whereas
rclone delete takes the time to actually delete the files (minus the folder stucture)?
Thanks for any input and advice!
