OpenDrive

Paths are specified as remote:path

Paths may be as deep as required, eg remote:directory/subdirectory.

Here is an example of how to make a remote called remote. First run:

 rclone config

n) New remote
d) Delete remote
q) Quit config
e/n/d/q> n

List directories in top level of your OpenDrive

rclone lsd remote:

List all the files in your OpenDrive

rclone ls remote:

To copy a local directory to an OpenDrive directory called backup

rclone copy /home/source remote:backup

Modified time and MD5SUMs

OpenDrive allows modification times to be set on objects accurate to 1 second. These will be used to detect whether objects need syncing or not.

Standard Options

Here are the standard options specific to opendrive (OpenDrive).

  • Env Var: RCLONE_OPENDRIVE_USERNAME
  • Type: string

--opendrive-password

Password.

Limitations

Note that OpenDrive is case insensitive so you can’t have a file called “Hello.doc” and one called “hello.doc”.

There are quite a few characters that can’t be in OpenDrive file names. These can’t occur on Windows platforms, but on non-Windows platforms they are common. Rclone will map these names to and from an identical looking unicode equivalent. For example if a file has a ? in it will be mapped to instead.
