  • Is this allowed...?
    Since I had to go through this process frequently, I set up a technique. I cache the file into my RD account. Generate a download link. Use the download link with the command line program called RClone to directly upload the file into my Google Drive.
  • Mount icloud Drive?
    I use rclone to be able to access OneDrive from thunar (filesystem) on MXLinux. It might be worth a look.
  • How to upload 20TiB to AWS with 20Mbps up
    FWIW I use Wasabi for an offsite, which is an S3 clone, and I use rclone to do it. Everything is encrypted. And Wasabi is _much_ cheaper than S3 and doesn't have the drawbacks of Glacier.

    Rclone works well.

  • Backblaze downloader: is there an alternative?
    reddit.com/r/backblaze | 2021-10-09
    You could do a restore to B2 and then use e.g. rclone.
  • ULPT: Instead of paying monthly for Spotify to listen to offline music, download songs off of third party applications on a computer which allow you to convert spotify and youtube links to mp3s, you can then transfer those files into your phone which you can listen to using iTunes/Samsung Music/etc
    Having the instant access to stream virtually any song from nearly any device is well worth the money. Spending the time to sync a library to all your devices just isn't worth it with the low price of spotify premium. There are some advanced syncing workflows with lidarr, deemix and rclone but you'll still be missing some of spotify's best features:

    "I am an AWS administrator/architect for work so we are always trying to weigh pros and cons."

    Very informal survey ... but I wonder if you are familiar with the 'rclone' tool:


    ... just curious ...

  • Trying to save library to Dropbox and says can’t save thumbs.do what do I do
    reddit.com/r/Calibre | 2021-10-05
    If you have the space, I would recommend against directly saving a calibre library in a sync service(Dropbox, Google drive, etc.) folder. In my experience, they are just too prone to corrupting your library. Instead save it somewhere else and then either: a. use something like rclone to copy it to the local sync folder Or b. Use rsync or an rsync wrapper (like DropSync 3 on Mac OS) to sync library changes to a remote server/device folder.
  • file missing in synced directory
    reddit.com/r/pcloud | 2021-10-03
    https://rclone.org/ If you'd rather not download all your data to your computer you can pay for a VPS online to move the data quickly and cancel it. This wouldn't cost much as you're usually being charged by the hour.
  • Backup Error After Moving Backups
    reddit.com/r/Arqbackup | 2021-10-02
    If you still have the backup on Wasabi, and are a little bit savvy with the command line, it’s worth looking into rclone. You can connect to both Wasabi and B2 simultaneously. Then directly copy the contents from the Wasabi bucket to a B2 bucket without the need to first download them to your local machine.
  • Android Solution got End-to-end two way sync for encrypted Files/folders
    Check out rclone https://rclone.org/
  • Does moving files from one bucket to another but on the same remote require downloading and uploading the files?
    reddit.com/r/rclone | 2021-10-01
    Based on this thread and this issue, Wasabi realizes this and "fixes" it on their end. But (a) it is not clear if that works across buckets, and (b) as of the last reply to the issue, there is only empirical evidence that it works with rclone. Nothing for sure going forward. So of course, YMMV
