Server side copy vs server side move

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

thanks for rlcone, in the past, i have donated money, glad that i did.
i have a rclone command using sync and --backup-dir.
i noticed that if i delete a file from my local computer, rclone will copy that file into the archive folder as seen in this log entry
2019/08/16 11:06:56 INFO : ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO - HOMESERVER01.vbm: Copied (server side copy)

my question is why is rclone COPYING, instead of MOVING, the file from the wasabi backup folder to the wasabi archive folder?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

Version "v1.48.0"

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

windows 10 64bit latest version 1903

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)


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

2019/08/16 11:06:56 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.48.0" starting with parameters ["C:\data\rclone\scripts\rclone.exe" "sync" "b:\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO\VeeamBackups\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO - HOMESERVER01" "wasabi01:vserver03\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO\backup\" "--stats=0" "--progress" "--stats=0" "--backup-dir=wasabi01:vserver03\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO\archive\20190816_110653\" "--log-level" "DEBUG" "--log-file=C:\data\rclone\logs\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO\20190816_110653\ABJ_HOMESERVER01_ISO_20190816_110653_rclone.log"]

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

The S3 protocol (which wasabi uses) doesn't have a server side move, so it does a server side copy then deletes the original - you'll see that in a later log message.

thanks much,
