Unable to Copy Files in Subfolders with Spaces in Names

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I'm trying to copy specific file types under a local folder and it's sub-folders to Google Drive, however, I notice that -whenever the process is finished- the files with specified extensions under subfolders having spaces in names are not copied and the corresponding subfolders are not created on Google Drive.

As far as I know the folder names with spaces need to be quoted, but since I only define the top folder path, I do not know how to define a general filter or a use a flag to include all subfolders with spaces in names. I will appreciate if you could help on this topic.

Thanks in advance.

Rclone Version
rclone v1.58.1
- os/version: raspbian 10.12
- os/kernel: 5.10.103-v7l+ (armv7l)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: arm
- go/version: go1.17.9
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

Rclone Command I Use

*rclone copy /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-8A66914F66913D3F/Album/ "GDrive:Album" --include "*.{jpg,jpeg,png,bmp,tif,txt}" --progress*

Nothing immediately strikes me as wrong.

Try this and see if the files you want are in the output

rclone lsf -R /srv/dev-disk-by-uuid-8A66914F66913D3F/Album/ --include "*.{jpg,jpeg,png,bmp,tif,txt}"

Hi Nick,

Thank you for your help. May I ask, exactly what "lsf -R" does ?

Check out:

rclone lsf

Thanks for the link. I have checked it out but since I am not good at such things could not understand very well the case.

Could you please clarify a bit?

The rclone lsf command above will recursively list the directory but it will use the filters so you can check which files would be synced.

Thank you for the clarification.
