Rclone is a command line application aimed at anyone who is working with multiple cloud storage solutions and wants to ensure that all files and folders are synced across the board.
Although the utility doesn’t require installation, you need to configure it so that you can determine the cloud storage location you are currently using. Depending on the backup solution, you may need to grant permission or obtain various numbers or hex tokens.
This app works with many well-known solutions out there, including but not limited to Backblaze, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Mega, Webdav, OwnCloud, Nextcloud, QingStor, Amazon S3, OpenDrive, Yandex Disk, Box, Dropbox, Hubic, Amazon Drive and local file system.
This tool checks SHA1 or MD5 hashes all the time to ensure that the file is intact and unmodified. However, the app supports partial file sync, so you can update files as soon as you modify them.
Depending on the type of information you upload and share via cloud services, you can also encrypt files. Finally, note that the timestamp is stored on the files you are copying or syncing.
