When uploading linked files, a server side copy could be done instead of uploading the same content twice


Currently if I copy/move/sync a tree containing linked files, rclone uploads the same content twice, which seems less than ideal.
Instead what could be done is a server-side copy once the first file is uploaded.


Where are you getting the files from - local hard disk?

Where are you uploading to?


Uploading from local disk to google drive.


Google drive can implement hard links too...

But a server side copy would be easier...

I think it might be very hard to fit this in the sync routines though.
