Edit 2: Solved with --checksum flag
Edit: Now this is interesting, I ran an rclone check on source and path and only 12 differences came back which is much more like it but 96 hashes could not be checked?
I think they are not being ignored because of the modification time and not the file size? I did some -vv logging and got this as an example:
Modification times differ by 1640h48m31.484699464s: 2017-01-29 00:22:49.473300536 -0800 PST, 2017-04-07 17:11:20.958 +0000 UTC
Originally I was syncing a local folder via rclone crypt to ACD and then syncing that folder from ACD to GDrive via cloud compute as a 2nd backup. With the recent events I am now attempting to sync or copy that local folder directly to GDrive but for whatever reason it is seeing my local data that GDrive has via ACD as new data even though its the exact same data on my local machine and trying to copy everything as new files instead of skipping the existing files already on GDrive.
I have cross checked the data on GDrive and the only difference I see is that my folders are showing a size of 4096 bytes locally and 0 bytes on GDrive. However I have tried syncing a single file with the exact same file size and still run into this issue. I ran an rclone mount and compared file sizes and everything is there.
In further testing I grabbed a single file down from GDrive to my local machine and attempted to copy it back and it was ignored and skipped as it rightfully should be because it already exists on GDrive. This leads me to believe somehow the data was changed during the ACD>GDrive original sync/copy process because rclone is seeing it as new data.
These are encrypted files and only happens on this one local machine. I have this working fine on some other VMs I have. Ran a few dry runs with
rclone sync -v linux/ googlecrypt:Linux/ --transfers=1 checkers=1 --stats=30s --dry-run and its just all coming back as
Not copying as --dry-run
Errors: 0 Checks: 36 Transferred: 48 Elapsed time: 13.5s
But those 48 files are already there! I hope this makes sense, if anyone can help me out you’d save me a ton of time.
