Rclone Google "Starred Files/Folders"

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Trying to Download all Google Drives Files/Folders Marked with "starred"

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.50.2-123-gae340cf7-beta

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.5

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Unraid/Linux

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive Team Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

I Used to run the command

rclone copyto Google3 /mnt/user/Home/CloudStorages/FromCloud --fast-list --use-server-modtime --bwlimit=15000 --stats=5s --progress --log-level INFO --log-file /mnt/user/Home/CloudStorages/Downloaded.log

I would mark Files (Add to my Drive) it would place a shortcut of the file in my root drive and have Rclone run on an Scheduled task to downloaded everything from the root of my google drive. but it appears i can no longer "use the add to my drive" from google so i am trying to use the starred Files and have Rclone download all files that are starred

Question
is there anyway to have rclone download only files/Folders that are marked with "Starred"

There is actually a pull request in progress with this feature :slight_smile:

Hopefully we'll merge that into the beta soon and release it in 1.52

Maybe you could help actually...

On that PR we are discussing how the Starred files should appear.

Should they appear in a flat list (like when you search for them) or in a directory structure, so effectively your normal directory structure, but just showing the starred files.

This is actually really good news, I know personally I like the Folder Structure directory idea.
I will Have to Follow the development of this in Rclone.

Thanks for the response.
