Windows mounted WebDAV drive has no free space?

I mounted a MagentaCLOUD account ( using WebDAV.
The drive shows 0byte free in Explorer and copying to the drive doesn’t work.
Copying files to the drive using “rclone copy file magenta:” works.
Mounting a OneDrive correctly shows the free space and copying files there works.

Is there anything I am doing wrong or is this a incompatibility with MagentaCLOUD?

What does

rclone about yourremote:


Which version of rclone are you using? If you aren’t using the latest then try the the latest release.

$ rclone about magenta:
Total: 0
Used: 0

rclone v1.46

  • os/arch: windows/amd64
  • go version: go1.11

Hmm, so magenta seems to think that you have a total allocation of 0, or maybe rclone is reading it wrong.

Can you try

rclone about magenta: -vv --dump bodies

Then we can see exactly what magenta is sending.

Perhaps I should ignore Total if it is 0… Is the size 0 correct? As in you have no files uploaded?

You can work-around this with --disable About which will cause rclone to believe that magenta doesn’t support the about call.

Sorry for the late answer, I was sick for a few days unfortunately.

Here is the output:

Mounting with --disable About leads to 1PB free space shown in explorer and copying files to the drive works.

Rclone is interpreting this as 0 available bytes, but I think it should be ignoring them

That is easy enough to fix - can you try this for me? (uploaded in 15-30 mins)

Thank you.
But this doesn’t seem to change anything:

$ rclone version
rclone v1.46.0-070-ga85897e6-fix-webdav-about-beta
- os/arch: windows/amd64
- go version: go1.11

$ rclone about mc:
Total:   0
Used:    0

Deleting and reconfiguring the remote also doesn’t seem to change anything.

I can give you login data to a free account there if this helps?

Hmm I see my mistake.

Try this (uploaded in 15-30 mins)

This one works! It shows free space as 1PB and copying files to the drive works, just like with --disable About

Thank you very much!

Thanks for testing :smile:

I’ve merged this to master now which means it will be in the latest beta in 15-30 mins and released in v1.47
