Whenever I run rmdirs on a large gdrive path I get
2017/09/27 12:15:06 DEBUG : Go routines at exit 18
and nothing actually gets removed even though there are several empty directories. Using rclone v1.36.
I wonder if part of it is that the “empty” directories are duplicates of other directories that has content.
Do you have duplicate directories?
It might be worth running
rclone dedupe using the latest beta first.
that is perfectly normal!
It seems to be “merging/copying” the content from directoryA, that has content, into directoryB which originally did not have content then remove the duplicate directory.
Yes that is what it is supposed to do. It is a bit longwinded if the directory is empty, I agree, but you’ll get the right result in the end.
