rclone lsd remote:
List all the files in your WebDAV
rclone ls remote:
To copy a local directory to an WebDAV directory called backup
rclone copy /home/source remote:backup
Plain WebDAV does not support modified times. However when used with Owncloud or Nextcloud rclone will support modified times.

Click on the settings cog in the bottom right of the page and this

Can be used with Sharepoint provided by OneDrive for Business or Office365 Education Accounts. This feature is only needed for a few of these Accounts, mostly Office365 Education ones. These accounts are sometimes not verified by the domain owner github#1975
This means that these accounts can’t be added using the official API (other Accounts should work with the “onedrive” option). However, it is possible to access them using webdav.
To use a sharepoint remote with rclone, add it like this: First, you need to get your remote’s URL:
You’ll only need this URL upto the email address. After that, you’ll most likely want to add “/Documents”. That subdirectory contains the actual data stored on your OneDrive.
Add the remote to rclone like this:
