Rclone local decrypt in place?

Sanity Check:

rclone v1.64.2

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 11 Pro 23H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22631.2506 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.21.3
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

type = crypt
remote = box:/
password = xxx
password2 = xxx

type = alias
remote = //?/Z:/Crypt

type = crypt
remote = local:/
password = same as crypt remote
password2 = same as crypt remote

this works fine in in decrypting files copied directly from an encrypted remote without rclone, is there a way, with a "local" remote to just decrypt "server based" if that makes sense so I don't just have to copy them all back to the same network drive ?
would a rclone remote copy from qnapcrypt to local work ?


something like this
rclone copy qnapcrypt: Z:\Crypt -vv --dry-run

fwiw, might be safe to hardcode the path

I mean the actual copy works fine, but it's not doing anything "server" based, I guess that would make sense since it's just a windows network path, just thinking out loud

what I mean is it makes sense there is no way to do a server based decryption since it's decrypted locally anyway

could rent a vm in the cloud and run rclone on that.
in that case, would not use local.

what I mean is - I am trying to decrypt potentially a large amount of stuff I have to manually copy outside of rclone - I'm dumping it on a nas - and just doing a rclone copy from the locally created backend back to the same was - decryption happening on the connected network client. I could theoretically run rclone on the nas itself

that is what i do.
a bit simpler, as not using windows os in the middle.

and rclone mount runs on fine on most nas.
