See the summary of the upcoming sync

Hello and thank you for the great product :slight_smile:

Here is my problem.
I'm syncing quite a lot of files. These files are often added/changed/removed.
What I want to achieve is to make sure that the changes look valid before the sync.
How I solve it now is: I run the sync with --dry-run and then browse the output.

But the problem here is that the output can be pretty big: it could be something like 200 files changed/removed or even more. And what I often need it only to make sure that:

  • there were around 50 files changed and no files removed
  • there were around 5 files removed
  • there were 100 files added and no changes to the existing ones
    Something like that, so I can be sure all seems correct.

So my question: is it possible to have something like a summary of how many files changed, how many removed, how many new added?

We are working on something like that in this issue

hello and welcome to the forum,

you can write a simple script that will scan the log file.

each time i run rclone, i have a python script that scans the log file for errors.
