Restoring after replacing a dead HDD

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I’m wondering which command to use when restoring from a rclone. I need to restore around 3TB of data. I was wondering which command would be the best to ensure the same folder structure and no duplicates. I was thinking just to use my sync command that I normally use and just switch source and destination so that it runs a sync command from google drive to local drive

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)

Google drive

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

Rclone sync without any extra parameters
Should I add a limit when Downloading 3-4 tb of data from GDrive?

Paste command here

#### The rclone config contents with secrets removed.  
<!--  You should use 3 backticks to begin and end your paste to make it readable.   -->

Paste config here

#### A log from the command with the `-vv` flag  
<!-- You should use 3 backticks to begin and end your paste to make it readable.  Or use a service such as or   -->

Paste log here

That should work perfectly. Though I'd probably use copy instead which will save accidents if you get the destination wrong.

Just to clarify.

The copy command would only copy files from the google drive that doesn't already exists locally.

I only need to restore approximately 50% as only 1 of my 2 hard drives is being replaced.

That is correct.

I recommend always using copy until you are sure everything is working ok.

If these are in a nice directory structure you can copy the bits you need probably.
