What will rclone do when a `copy` to Google Photos is interrupted/broken?

Will rclone transfer a partial (and corrupted) file or will the file not exist in Google Photos?

I am trying to find out if I need to handle duplicate checking for my Google Photos copy script.

rclone will finish with an error.

I think your question is rather what Gdrive does with partial uploads - and this is question to Google:)

Not sure you can get definitive answer covering all edge cases so it is better to assume worst case scenario and plan your script accordingly.

Google Photos does not support hash. I think I will have to rely on file size. I will check if that works once my quota is not over. :confused:
