The manpage’s ‘Synopsis’ provides a fast reference.
We’ll assume a folder in Google Drive called ’test’, and local folder called ‘foo’.
Generate a config file with:
Look at the contents of Google Drive:
rclone ls gd:/
If rclone loses authorization:
List only directories:
rclone lsf -dirs-only google:/
Mount the remote location on /tmp/google with:
rclone mount google /tmp/google
Copy the contents of ‘foo’ to ’test’.
rclone copy foo/ google:test
Sync contents of foo and test with a progress bar (will delete Google items):
rclone sync foo google:test -P
Remove all duplicates
rclone dedupe google:test
Delete contets of a remote file:
rclone delete n:test
Or delete the folder and contents as well:
rclone purge n:test
Copy to and from with:
rclone copyto google:test foo
rclone copyto foo google:test
