Rclone running for several hours

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Rclone is running for several hours

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.49.2

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.12.9

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

Ubuntu 18.04 64bits

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

Digital Ocean spaces

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

rclone copy -P --retries 2 --checkers 16 --fast-list ~/files/app backup:deep-darkness/backup_storage/app/

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Transferred: 109.645M / 109.645 MBytes, 100%, 8.330 kBytes/s, ETA 0s
Errors: 10 (retrying may help)
Checks: 103210 / 113242, 91%
Transferred: 23 / 23, 100%
Elapsed time: 3h44m37.5s

A count of the files indicates there is only 57219 files in total, but as you can see the count is already at

So my question is how come it takes so long time? are there any simple way to back up all the files in the folder and then just exit afterwards? and at the same time I have several file already closed errors, 10 in total.

rclone is doing a retry of the whole sync which is why you see more files than the whole number!

I just fixed the "already closed" error here:

https://beta.rclone.org/branch/v1.49.0-042-g89fda14a-fix-already-closed-beta/ (uploaded in 15-30 mins)

Can you try that? It will cause rclone to not to have to retry the whole sync.

That version worked. Now it only goes through all files once.

Do you know when this would be part of the official version?

Thanks for testing.

I'll merge that and stick it in a point release this weekend probably.
