‘Remote’ loading with rclone


#1

Morning all

I’ve got about 1TB of files stored in a google team drive - I’d like to get them into a restive repository stored in the same location.

Is there any way to do this entirely in the remote, or do I have to down then upload?

Thanks

You have to download them somehow.
Restic needs to read all the data in order to do its job (dedupe, encrypt, backup). Reading data in a remote location is downloading.
