Trying to find other's workflow here. But all i see are people with the same misconceptions of sync as I had. e.g. Two way SYNC with Google Drive - #4 by marcolino
I fully understand the issue. I'm a rsync heavy user and die a little every time i have to interact with google drive....
But what is the workflow everyone here uses when they must receive updates and send updates?
I am fine doing "manual conflict resolution".
But how can i:
1. rclone copy REMOTE/doc.docx
2. work on LOCAL/LOCAL/doc.docx
3. rclone copy REMOTE/doc.docx (file was modified)
4. manually resolve conflicts as I see fit, seeing both files.
5. rclone copy LOCAL/doc.docx to REMOTE/doc.docx
rclone copy --interactive
rclone copy --dry-run
i will try to work something out with diff/rsync to a tmp dir and --dry-run somehow. Won't be beautiful or easy
--interactive is a nightmare. The output mixes the question with what was being uploaded in the background. So easy to make mistakes. But it is what i am using now as a stop gap.
rclone check will not work for you?
--error flags write paths, one per line, to the file name (or stdout if it is
from the docs I assumed CHECK was just another interface for COPY --dry-run... but I was wrong. thanks for pointing it out.
CHECK also checks for content change, and files missing on one side or another, which is a feature missing from COPY --dry-run.
I think I will still need to hack something, but CHECK will definitely help.
check --combined will probably help a lot.
