Rclone --dump-bodies used to return gdrive quota used


#1

Hey there,

rclone --dump-bodies used to return (among lots of other info) the gdrive quota used, and as of version 1.40 at least, now it doesn’t.
Is there any way we can use rclone to tell me how much gdrive space has been used? Or even the date/time of last modification for the entire gdrive? I was using this feature to run a bunch of scripts when my gdrive changed. The reported gdrive folder modification times look to be complete fiction unfortunately.

I’ve seen references to an “rclone about” command which looks like exactly what I’d need but it’s not quite there yet.

Thanks in advance for any ideas / workarounds.

Err, yes we stopped asking for stuff we weren’t using to save bandwidth.

That is under development here: https://github.com/ncw/rclone/pull/2064

I made that PR into a branch (after rebasing it) - find it here…

https://beta.rclone.org/v1.40-085-g76dd198d-about/ (uploaded in 15-30 mins)

They are the times the folders were modified themselves and have nothing to do with the contents of the folders.

They are the times the folders were modified themselves and have nothing to do with the contents of the folders.

Err, yes, I figured that out after doing a couple of experiments. I suppose there are scenarios where that info is useful.

Thanks for taking the PR and creating the branch. I’ll have a look at that after it uploads.
