Wrong transfers count, byte when the same file is copied

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I copied the file with suffix option

object_a has one file which is 1.txt 10 bytes.
object_b has one file which is 1.txt 15 bytes.

rclone copy object_a:test2 object_b:test2 --suffix=_old

and then
object_b has two files which are 1.txt(10 byte) and 1_old.txt(15 byte)
it means to copy just a file (1.txt 10 bytes)

but transfers count is 2, transfer byte is 25 bytes in the stat of Rclone.
I expect that transfers=1, tranfer bytes=10 byte. but it's not

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.


Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

custom s3 object storage

It is not a bug. It is by design... which many people do not agree with:)

until one day somebody makes it configurable (to count server side operations or not)

oh. I will check the page.
Thank you. :slight_smile:

Looking at PR which added server-side moves into stats:

It looks like rather easy thing to add a new flag and make it optional. If it is something you consider important you could give it a go:) and implement.

:wink: I will consider about it. Thanks.
