Rclone updating modified time

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am trying to copy from a source to destination with filter criteria as min-age 545 days. If I repeatedly copy the same files which did not change in modified_time and size, I dont want mod_time to change in destination.
But rclone copy is updating modified time in destination even though we specify not to update the modified time using --no-update-modtime

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.60.1-DEV

  • os/version: darwin 12.6.2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 21.6.0 (x86_64)
  • os/type: darwin
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.18.5
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

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


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

rclone copy --no-update-modtime conxn:src conxn:dest --min-age 545d --exclude '*.crc' --progress --size-only

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = s3
provider = AWS
env_auth = true
region = <>
location_constraint = <>
acl = private
server_side_encryption = AES256
storage_class = STANDARD

If you share the debug log file, it will show why it's copying it.
