Suspected Bug when rcloning a file that is being copied on gdrive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I noticed that rclone copies a file that is partially uploaded to google drive when a serer side copy is running from gdrive to gdrive

So say you are uploading a 15gb file to google drive on Config A
But you also ran a command or a scheduled rclone sync command ran
rclone sync A: B: --server side and ignore existing flags
rclone is copying that partially uploaded 15gb file as well and because --ignore-existing is passed into this it isn't updating that 15gb file again, it just copies up a broken 15gb file to config B

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

Windows 10, Windows server 2019

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 A: B: --drive-server-side-across-configs --fast-list --progress --ignore-existing --quiet -P

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.


A log from the command with the -vv flag


There's no log file?

There isn't a concept of partial copies for google drive. It's either there or it isn't.

You'd have to provide a log file.
