I have 1 TB to sync/backup to Amazon. I was hoping to do it in 3 hour batches. So I am wondering is there anyway to initiate a sync and have rclone stop after 3 hours. I know I can manually kill it after 3 hours but I was hoping to script it.
you could put in script killall -9 rclone to kill all processes ( including mount so make sure you remount after )
I do not understand. Put it where? How?
killall -9 rclone
in your rclone upload script add this before you start rclone copy
exec /path/stoprclone.sh &
Check if you have killall command if not do
sudo apt-get install psmisc
p.s. I assume you are running it on linux, if you run it in windows just add it to task scheduler and limit 3h time there.
Oh. Thank you. I will try that.
