Rclone rcat and cat

Image
Good afternoon all, and just before we all enjoy a great weekend...

I know world backup day ( http://www.worldbackupday.com ) was two weekends ago, but I thought I would share this BRILLIANT little trick I found.

I hit the 400K file limit on my Backup Google Team Drive 2 weeks ago, which is a problem, to say the least.

Then I thought about it and figured that the worlds best cloud sync tool should have thought about this already, and someone has.

Turns out rclone has rcat into the cloud or cat from the cloud!

This means you can do something like:

tar -zcf - Backups/Folder/ | rclone rcat gdrive:/20190412.backup.tgz
and then to get it back:

rclone cat gdrive:/20190412.backup.tgz | tar -zxvf -
Enjoy!!!
