probably I am doing something wrong because the issue appeared no matter which cloud service I used.
Now I use megacloud. I use this command:
rclone sync my_folder/ mega:my_folder
But the syncing is very slow even when actually nothing changed or just a logging file may have changed. I get these messages for example:
NOTICE: packrat/lib-R/x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0/3.5.1/grid: Can't follow symlink without -L/--copy-links
What can I do to have a quick and simple sync?
How many files are you syncing?
How many change on a daily basis?
There are 35.000 files in that folder and I approximate that less than 30 change daily. However, those are spread over several folder. I saw that this problem does not show up in some subfolder. E.g. if I only sync files where there are R model files (.rds files), then the sync is without those issues…
That error is telling you rclone won’t follow symlinks without the
-L flag. Or you can use the
--skip-links flag to suppress the warning.
How long does the sync take?
Did you try using the
--progress flag so you can see what rclone is doing?
