I've subscirbed to MEGA 400GB plan. If I'm able to connect to my 'Backup' area via GUI I'm unable to access to Backup area of MEGA via rclone: seems that any command I run, rclone accesses only the 'Cloud' bidir sync area.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
$ rclone version
os/version: darwin 13.3 (64 bit)
os/kernel: 22.4.0 (arm64)
os/arch: arm64 (ARMv8 compatible)
Yes latest version
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone ls MEGA:Backup
2023/03/31 11:06:48 ERROR : : error listing: directory not found
2023/03/31 11:06:48 Failed to ls with 2 errors: last error was: directory not found
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
type = mega
pass = ######################
user = email@example.com
A log from the command with the -vv flag
$ rclone -vv ls MEGA:Backup

Tnx for you fast reply, but I wonder why does everything else work? That is, if I work with 'bidirectional synchronized' folders, rclone works fine. It's only with the backup area that it's giving me these problems.
This backend uses the go-mega go library which is an opensource go library implementing the Mega API. There doesn't appear to be any documentation for the mega protocol beyond the mega C++ SDK source code so there are likely quite a few errors still remaining in this library.
So basically, for development, you have to guess how to do things since it's not documented and if you want to implement a new like 'backup' that isn't there, feel free to decompile and submit a PR to add it in
I didn't understand what you were referring to, sorry.
I had seen that page myself so much that I initially decided to leave it alone, but... but... one of the various AIs suggested something like
rclone lsd MEGA:/Root/Backups
I thought then that if it has this knowledge, it must have read it somewhere on the net. Hence the decision to try to ask in the forum.
Among other things, I saw a post where someone configured the MEGA service as 'crypt' and not as 'mega' using very different parameters. This is also why I decided to ask: I said to myself "there will be information that I haven't been able to find on the net... Better if I search for help..."
