I setup a new Ubuntu based NAS at home, to replace the old one… so new HW (Dell T140 versus HP Microserver) and new WD Red HDD.
My local filesystem is partially encrypted with eCryptFS: let me say… movies are not encrypted, but personal data are.
Anyway, everything is synced to GDrive with rclone and with its encryption.
So, to be clear:
- movies are locally not ecrypted, but are encrypted on GDrive with Rclone
- personal data are locally encrypted with eCryptFS and again encrypted on GDrive with Rclone.
I copied all the data from the old NAS to the new NAS.
In the new NAS I setup Rclone and performed a dry-run with RClone to what is going to happen and…
I see thousands of messages saying “not copying as dry run”. What ???
The new source is the copy of the old one!!!
So… at the end of the story the files that RClone is going to sync on the new NAS are all inside the eCrypt folder and… checking 3 times to be sure inside the old NAS, inside the new NAS and inside GDrive… yes… the Rclone in the old NAS is not going to copy these files, but the Rclone in the new NAS is ready to copy them
Example of a file that the new NAS is going to copy and of course does not exist on Gdrive and is skipped with no warning by the old NAS
Rclone version in the old NAS is 1.41 and in the new is 1.46
