I have this example directory structure:
- (symlink) descriptivenameof_file1
- (symlink) descriptivenameof_file2
- (symlink) descriptivenameof_file3
In this case, I'm uploading root_folder to Google Drive.
I want to share the "sorted" folder with people, while retaining the original as a raw backup (kinda) of the files. Currently, when I upload this using rclone, I use the
--copy-links, which uploads the original files in place of the symlink.
This works perfectly, except it takes up twice the storage space and upload time. I read the documentation and it seems like Google Drive shortcuts can be manually created using rclone backend and can be dereferenced when downloading, but I didn't see anything about uploading. Is there any way to convert these local symlinks to Google Drive shortcuts using rclone?
