Use same folder for --backup-dir

Is it possible for rclone to use the same folder as the file to save the backups. For example, if remote:drive:/path/to/file.txt will be modified or deleted, rclone would rename it to remote:drive:/path/to/file.txt.20181124?

I have the same question

What you are asking for is for –suffix to work on its own without --backup-dir.

rsync supports this so rclone should too. However it doesn’t at the moment.

Can you please make a new issue on github about this and I’ll add it to the todo list!

Maybe one of you would like to help implement it?

Added. Thanks!
