Understanding errors

I try to upload the content of a folder (on a mac) to one drive.
It keeps sending again and again the same files, it shows there are some errors.
However, I don’t see where I can understand what the errors are to correct them.
Is there any place (logs) where errors are clearly explained to be corrected?
thank you

If you post them here, I (or someone else) will help you work out what they mean.

For best results, run with -v flag so we can see the debug messages too.

here is the error I get (xxx is from me)
2016/10/14 12:00:53 xxx.mkv: Cancelling multipart upload
2016/10/14 12:00:54 xxx.mkv: Failed to copy: unauthenticated: Authentication failed
2016/10/14 12:00:54 xxx.mkv: Removing failed copy
2016/10/14 12:00:54 xxx.mkv: Failed to remove failed copy: invalidRequest: API not found

Can you upload small files? Or is it just a problem with big files?

What happens if you do

rclone ls remote: -v

Does that work or give error messages? Post the log if it doesn’t work.

this folder has big files (movies). It works better with small files
I don’t get any error when doing a ls remote.

So rclone does work sometimes, better with small files.

Can you send a complete log with -v of a failing upload. Email it to me privately if you want ( nick@craig-wood.com ) or post it here.


I need a few hours to be able to replicate a failed upload as most of the files are correctly transferred. We’ll send that.
However I don’t remember anything more details than what I already posted. and it’s the problem : there is not a clear explanation on what the problem is.

I’m unsure what the problem is too! Hopefully the logs will help.

I still have the issue, which are usually something like this

That looks like a bug!

Can you open an issue at http://github.com/ncw/rclone/issues with the above log in please and I’ll have a go at fixing it.

I’ll post a beta for you to try on the issue in due course!
