What is your rclone version (eg output from rclone -V)

1.3.8

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Ubuntu 16.04 Server

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

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

root@rclone:~# rclone copy GoogleBackup:/ /mnt/GoogleBackup:2017-10-30 -v
2017/10/30 14:59:10 INFO  : Local file system at /mnt/GoogleBackup:2017-10-30: Modify window is 1ms

I tested to remove the snap and run it with a binary, and it worked, so the snap is the error here. Worth noticing is that I ran it with --classic as described here: http://www.webupd8.org/2017/02/rclone-is-now-available-as-snap-package.html

We've abandoned the snap package as we've been unable to make it work properly :-( Probably our fault, but we felt our time was better spent developing rclone that fighting with every package manager under the sun.

@ncw I get that. No big deal really if there was a command to update. Sure, I can make a simple script myself and run it, but would be nice of you to provide it.

We've just introduced a script install for rclone...

which is cross platform (exept windows) and we will maintain.

Hopefully that will help.

I'm going to close this issue now.

@enoch85 how did you installed? It gives this error:

error: snap "rclone" is not compatible with --classic

I did not know that a snap package need to be compatible for classic installation.

  • There is also a nix package of rclone. It is developed by rclone team?
