Move files from source to dest.
Moves the contents of the source directory to the destination directory. Rclone will error if the source and destination overlap and the remote does not support a server side directory move operation.
If no filters are in use and if possible this will server side move
dest:path. After this
source:path will no
longer longer exist.
Otherwise for each file in
source:path selected by the filters (if
any) this will move it into
dest:path. If possible a server side
move will be used, otherwise it will copy it (server side if possible)
dest:path then delete the original (if no errors on copy) in
If you want to delete empty source directories after move, use the --delete-empty-src-dirs flag.
See the --no-traverse option for controlling whether rclone lists the destination directory or not. Supplying this option when moving a small number of files into a large destination can speed transfers up greatly.
Important: Since this can cause data loss, test first with the --dry-run flag.
Note: Use the
--progress flag to view real-time transfer statistics.
