Rclone stuck transferring the same file

Rclone got stuck and kept transferring the same file past 100%.

resolved: issue was a missing --no-gzip-encoding

did you miss the template of questions

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

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

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

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

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

I was missing this:

best to use the help and support template....

It is unusual to need that. Can you tell us more about what you were transferring from and to and what your rclone command line looks like?

(insert help template joke here)


I was doing a test copy of a small s3 bucket to Azure. I'm planning to do do a large onetime copy between s3 and azure soon followed by small daily copies, and i was testing things out locally.

The command was:

rclone copy S3:local-test/attachments AZURE:tempcontainer --progress -vv

I had some gzipped files in s3 and they were blocking the transfer from finishing, or taking too long i didn't have the patience to find out past 600% transfer completed.

Ah, they probably had Content-Encoding: gzip set. Yes this is a known problem I think.
