Sync without delete


Would it be possible to sync without deleting files from the destination, much how rsync behaves unless instructed?

I have a directory where I am adding files quite frequently and sometimes I need to remove older files to make room for new ones, but don’t want them removed from the destination which does not have the same space constraints (ACD).

Alternatively this could be implemented with inotify/lsyncd/etc, but feels like it should be a feature.


I just use rclone copy then run a cron job to delete files older than x time (in my case 14 days) off the disk every day. Copy will check vs the destination so it doesn’t duplicate effort uploading existing files and still upload new files and furthermore not delete any files on the destination.

Thanks, that solves my problem. I was looking at the problem from a silly perspective.
