What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I am copying a very large dropbox folder from one dropbox account to another. I left rclone running for days but I had to exit using ctrl + C at some point, I now want to reinitiate, but I'm wondering if copy is the correct command or if it will start the process again from the beginning and cause duplicates? is that a better command for this?
- os/version: darwin 12.3 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 21.4.0 (x86_64)
- os/type: darwin
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.9
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: cmount
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone copy don_dropbox:folder cb_dropbox:folder
Just re-run the same command.
Rclone will automatically skip previously uploaded files and continue uploading remaining files from where you stopped. The only caveat is that you will "waste" some time/resources because it needs to re-scan your source to figure this out, and if you cancelled during upload of a large file it will probably re-upload that entire file (i.e. not resume parts of file), but usually this is negligible.
