Is it please possible to consider reducing upload sizes by implementing:
- Deduplication (if possible - although complicated as working with files rather than chunks).
- Compression (This would be easier and zstd 9 gives me amazing results)
This is already done by some backup programs, but they don't have the sync or other features of rclone for uploading to cloud. Some include:-
- https://restic.net/ (This can use rclone as backend for backups, but can't sync and has the worst file reduction compared to borg or duplicati.
I know there have been other compression requests, but combining with deduplication and seeing how borg and duplicati do may assist. They produce amazing results, but unfortunately no sync and less backends.
