RClone upload count


I've uploaded around 80 GB of data to GDrive. The issue is my seedbox counted it as 1 TB uploaded.
The command is:
rclone move -P orig: dest: --drive-chunk-size 256M

Is it really possible that rclone sent a 1 TB of data to upload 80 GB of file ?


No, if rclone sent 80GB, you'd see around a little bit more than that transferred as there is overhead for sending data.

we want to help but you did not provide the requested info...

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)

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Short of a serious malfunction it would take a very unstable connection and an extreme amount of retries to make 80GB turn into 1TB.

If that was the case then such a high chunk size would not be a good strategy - but I doubt this is actually what happened.

Was this a one-time occurrence or do all uploads register as way too big on the seedbox?
If it is repeatable, then you should log it with --log-level DEBUG and --log-file=MyLogFile.txt
(log level debug is the same as -vv)
