The progress bar of the web ui work is not working, but every time it gives me this error: create-empty-src-dirs [UNRAID]

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

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

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

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



echo "Logging to $LOG_FILE"

# sync the Backups folder to gdrive
# "/mnt/user/backup"
# Read documentation on what these (suggested) flags do

rclone sync -vv  \
--backup-dir=gdrive:/_OLD/Backups-libvirt-$CURRENT_DATE \
--fast-list \
--tpslimit=3 \
--log-file=$LOG_FILE \
--checkers=4 \
--rc \
_async=true \
/mnt/user/backup/libvirt gdrive:/libvirt 

rm /mnt/user/backup/libvirt/*

echo "Log file can be found at $LOG_FILE"

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
client_id = xxxx
client_secret = xxxxx
scope = drive
token = {"access_token":"xxx"}
team_drive = 
root_folder_id = xxxx
server_side_across_configs = true

A log from the command with the -vv flag
