What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I've synced my local drive to OneDrive for the first time. To double check everything is OK, I did a dry-run sync the other way round (OneDrive to local). The logs show some files would have been copied, and others deleted. What's wrong? There should be something I don't quite understand. I just want to be sure that the two drives contains exactly the same data. See below for commands and their output.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
rclone v1.61.1 - os/version: ubuntu 22.04 (64 bit) - os/kernel: 5.19.0-35-generic (x86_64) - os/type: linux - os/arch: amd64 - go/version: go1.19.4 - go/linking: static - go/tags: none
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
For the first sync
rclone sync \ --progress \ --fast-list \ --onedrive-chunk-size 65536000 \ --transfers 20 \ --checkers 20 \ --copy-links \ --log-level INFO \ --log-file rclone_log.txt \ /media/oliver/Oliver\ HDD/ROOT/ \ onedrive:/ROOT/
I don't have the initial output of this command. If I run it again, the log file is:
2023/03/05 12:14:26 INFO : There was nothing to transfer 2023/03/05 12:14:26 INFO : Transferred: 0 B / 0 B, -, 0 B/s, ETA - Checks: 351657 / 351657, 100% Elapsed time: 26m57.4s
I thought this output means: "source and destination are the same".
For the dry test sync, I do
rclone sync \ --dry-run \ --progress \ --fast-list \ --onedrive-chunk-size 65536000 \ --transfers 20 \ --checkers 20 \ --copy-links \ --log-level INFO \ --log-file rclone_log.txt \ onedrive:/ROOT/ \ /media/oliver/Oliver\ HDD/ROOT/
And the log file is (Information inside [brackets] is written by me):
[there were more than 100.000 lines with contents similar to:] 2023/03/05 13:32:05 NOTICE: [filename deleted for privacy]: Skipped remove directory as --dry-run is set 2023/03/05 13:32:10 NOTICE: [filename deleted for privacy]: Skipped delete as --dry-run is set (size 5.686Ki) 2023/03/05 13:02:50 NOTICE: [filename deleted for privacy]: Skipped copy as --dry-run is set (size 7.604Mi) 2023/03/05 13:32:05 NOTICE: Transferred: 2.593 GiB / 2.593 GiB, 100%, 14.712 MiB/s, ETA 0s Checks: 351657 / 351657, 100% Deleted: 54580 (files), 8420 (dirs) Transferred: 54580 / 54580, 100% Elapsed time: 29m23.5s
I thought this output means: "source and destination are NOT the same", so I don't know what to think.
I've manually checked some of the files that the second command would copy. They exist both in source and destination, with same size and mod date.
The rclone config contents with secrets removed.
