Syncing 'My Drive' from user 1 to 'Shared drive' from user 2. Error when reading directory

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm trying to copy files over non-destructively from a 'my drive' source, and a 'shared drive' destination. When running the copy command, it cannot find my destination remote source directory.

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, 64bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive -> Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy "compname Business:compname Business/Archive 2013-2016" "compname:/" --dry-run -vv

To hide sensitive information, I've substituted the company name with 'compname'

When running rclone lsd compname:
I get the right output:

          -1 2021-02-10 16:59:27        -1 HR
          -1 2021-02-10 16:59:27        -1 Logistics
          -1 2021-02-10 16:59:27        -1 Planning
          -1 2021-02-10 16:59:27        -1 Potential Projects

When running rclone lsd "compname Business:compname Business/Archive 2013-2016" I also get the right output:

          -1 2015-06-17 11:10:40        -1 HR
          -1 2013-12-03 13:17:07        -1 Logistics
          -1 2019-01-02 11:37:38        -1 Planning
          -1 2015-07-13 17:09:37        -1 Potential Projects
          -1 2017-07-31 12:28:44        -1 Renumbered Invoices

EDIT: I'm a numpty :man_facepalming:. There was a typo in the copy command.

the company name might be visible in the log file.....

This log means that the root directory couldn't be found.

I suspect there is a typo here MWC vs WMC ?

"MWC Business:WMC Business/Archive 2013-2016"

You got in here just after me! (See the edit) Found the typo. Thanks. :man_facepalming:
