Rclone sync to backblaze B2 does not sync empty folders


I am syncing to Backblaze B2 bucket with below command but no empty folders are synced to Backblaze B2 bucket.

command used
rclone sync /storage/backup/images/puteaux/W1 remote:netebackup/weekly -l --fast-list --b2-hard-delete

Rclone version used
rclone v1.46

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.11.5

host platform
Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS

Please let me know if you need any more details.

Can you run it with a -vv and share the output?

As per thread number 2403 rclone does not create empty directories on S3 and Backblaze B2.

This is show stopper for us as we have around thousands of empty directories in our backup.

Can we configure rclone to create empty direcries on B2 buckets.

Not currently, no.

You could maybe find them all with

find /storage/backup/images/puteaux/W1  -depth -empty -type d > empty-dirs

then at least you’d be able to re-create them.
