Rclone purge --progress reporting

When running rclone purge --progress [folder name] the stats always report 0% is there a way to get more information or insight into the progress of a purge operation like we have with rclone copy --progress. This would be particularly useful for directories with TB of data.

rclone v1.54.1
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.15.8

hello and welcome to the forum,

the problem with that is it can be very expensive in terms of api calls, to pre-scan the entire folder/file structure.

tho a --pre-scan might be possible.

That makes sense. Our use case is a local filesystem for this one. Having a flag to enable that sounds like a nice feature to increase visibility into the on-going purge operation. I think of it kind of like --check-first where I'm presented with a file count and size before rclone copy executes any copies. Then with the precounted file tree rclone purge would present progress updates that can be parsable by other tools.
