I'd basically like to know how "safe" rclone move is.
I use Rclone for my Plex Libary and I'm just concerned that I could end up with corrupted files.
Is Rclone Move doing some sort of checks before deleting the local files? It isn't really explained in the docs.
I'm just curious if I'd rather use rclone copy for that.
Any insight is appreciated. Thank you
A move does a copy than deletes it.
A copy just copies.
I personally just use a move as I'm not that concerned. Can't say I've ever had corrupt transfers.
Rclone move does the checks
rclone copy does before deleting the local file. After transfer it checks size and checksum (if possible).
Checksums are checked even if using crypt provided the backend supports them (see
yes, rclone can safely move files provided there are no bugs, which does happen, as with all software.
if you make a mistake with the rclone command, you could lose all your files forever!
if you do not have a backup of the files, it is good to be paranoid.
sure move is nice that it is one command.
but in this case do three separate commands.
Hmm, this is something I need to fix .
Can you make an issue about this on GitHub please so it doesn't get missed - thanks
Okay, so long story short, through my own stupidity, the use of many variables, and my own lack of foresight to review scripts after variable changes, I managed to do an rclone move dir:/ dir:/. Yeah… stupid stupid stupid.
Worse yet, I let it run the full drive because I didn’t take the time to review what was going on.
So, I now have hundreds of thousands of files in the trash, waiting to be restored.
How can I accomplish restoring them back to their original directory structure (encrypted…
Dear fellow rclone users...
merry christmas to everyone
I need help to restore my rclone-encrypted remote files.
Background: I messed up my freenas server. I've stored all my important pdf documents (8GB!) there and did set up a remote backup ("freenas cloud sync task") which is based on rclone to backblaze b2. Solid idea.
Tl,dr: I tampered with my server, all data gone, the only data that is left is the remote backup at backblaze, rclone encrypted.
Sooo, how do i decrypt th…
also, you can do a trial run using these two flags:
"Do a trial run with no permanent changes. Use this to see what rclone would do without actually doing it. Useful when setting up the
sync command which deletes files in the destination"
"Log all of rclone’s output to FILE"
