Will "rclone move source destination --ignore-existing" delete?

If I were to run this command, rclone move source destination --ignore-existing, would the files in the source be deleted after confirming they exist on the destination, or would they continue to exist in both locations?

Since there’s been 22 views and no replies, I’ll test this tonight.

Test it with --dry-run to simulate what will happen. I think the source files would be deleted.

Created an account just to answer your question. The source will be deleted after successfully being copied to the destination. Source: I have a nightly script that does exactly this.

Seems that it will check the file on the destination, then it will delete the source. So, a re-upload does not happen.
