Virgin Seeks Synology Installation Details

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Need more specificity on Synology install than the documentation provides. After a week of reading, I can’t find answers to these questions. I’m an ssh/linux virgin and want to ensure a fun and safe experience. Please be gentle. :blush: I’m referencing Install

Q1: Quickstart begins with downloading and extracting the relevant binary, whereas Script Installation says to run the curl command. Are these sequential steps or mutually exclusive? That is, does using the script require the download first?

Q2: In either case—when downloading and/or executing script--which directory should be my current directory: / OR /var/services/homes/{username} OR other?

Q3: Pertinent to Q2, I plan to automate rclone using Synology Task Scheduler (a front-end for cron I assume). I have read that for this to work (non-SSH execution), the rclone executable (in Synology) should not be in root, but in a volume (or shared folder). Can anyone confirm or deny this please?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

Will be using latest stable release.

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

Will be using Backblaze B2.

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

curl | sudo bash

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

No config yet.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

No log yet.

hello and welcome to the forum,

i run rclone on a synbox.

the first step is to install rclone, using curl | sudo bash
this will download the install script. the install script will download rclone and install it.
you can do that from your home dir.


Thanks so much!

rclone installed, configured, and testing begun
