i'm new to rclone, i'm trying to sync a Onedrive account with a local folder, with the command
rlcone sync -vv remote:/ --backup-dir /mnt/disk1/Onedrive.Rclone.Backup/$date /mnt/disk1/Onedrive.Rclone
i'm looking at the log to diagnose some issue, after two consecutive run, i still find about 100 files (400mb) in the -backup dir (ofc they did not change).
The file that keep being duplicated have this info log line :
2020/04/12 13:06:04 INFO : WP_20170306_005.mp4: Moved (server side)
What does it mean ?
hello and welcome to the forum,
some, but not all, remotes and local systems are able to move a file from one folder to another folder.
rclone will simply move that file from folder to folder.
if rclone can that, it is called a server-side move.
however, some remotes cannot simply move files from one folder to another folder.
instead rclone will be forced to copy the file to a new location and then delete the original file
thanks, i understand that, but if i call "rclone sync remote => local", why does it do a server side move ?
Ho maybe i understood, "server side" it's just generic meaning with native moving capability, if it's doing it locally it still calls it "server side", is it ?
you are using flag
which will need to moves files from
so in this case, the server is your local computer.
also when testing sync, which can delete files in the dest, you can use flag
i did not think at local folder as a kind of remote, btw server side is not a great word, maybe remote is more appropriate.
i guess to be accurate, using rclone terminology.
remote and local filesystem are a subset of storage systems.
Yes that is correct! I see where your confusion came from. The core of rclone just works on remotes implemented by backends. Some of those remotes can be implemented by the local backend...
