Sync Drive to Drive Google documents and sheet

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I need to sync one Drive folder that contains Google Sheets and Google Docs file in another Drive folder. The sync is succesfull but the problem is that in the destination all Google Sheets and Docs are converted to Office files (xlsx, docx). How can I avoid this conversion?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.60.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 11 Home 22H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22621.819 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

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  source: destination:

If you can do a server side copy then rclone should preserve them properly.

Add --drive-server-side-across-configs to your command and see if that helps.

Thanks, it's working.
