rclone about

Get quota information from the remote.


Get quota information from the remote, like bytes used/free/quota and bytes used in the trash. Not supported by all remotes.

This will print to stdout something like this:

Total:   17G
Used:    7.444G
Free:    1.315G
Trashed: 100.000M
Other:   8.241G

Where the fields are:

  • Total: total size available.
  • Used: total size used
  • Free: total amount this user could upload.
  • Trashed: total amount in the trash
  • Other: total amount in other storage (eg Gmail, Google Photos)
  • Objects: total number of objects in the storage

Note that not all the backends provide all the fields - they will be missing if they are not known for that backend. Where it is known that the value is unlimited the value will also be omitted.

Use the --full flag to see the numbers written out in full, eg

Total:   18253611008
Used:    7993453766
Free:    1411001220
Trashed: 104857602
Other:   8849156022

Use the --json flag for a computer readable output, eg

    "total": 18253611008,
    "used": 7993453766,
    "trashed": 104857602,
    "other": 8849156022,
