Renaming Files, puts them in new Folder with that name

Essentially I have a load of files I need to rename but for some reason --detect-renames does not do it, so am doing them manually. I am running rclone v1.39 (but also reverted back to v1.37) on Win10 x64 and connecting to an Encrypted Google Drive connection. Everytime I rename a file, it creates a new folder with the name I have given it, and moves the file into that folder leaving it as the original name.

For example, there is a file called “renameme.txt”, if I rename it to “newname.txt” it creates a folder called “newname.txt” and “renameme.txt” is moved into that folder.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this not supported on Google Drive or similar.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

I expect you are using rclone move, try using rclone moveto instead…

Or use rclone mount and your OS tools…
