Sync to Spaces Re-uploads every time

I have tried both rclone and aws s3 sync commands to sync data from my server to spaces. Both upload fine, but on subsequent syncs, the data re-uploads again. This is a big problem as I have over 500GB data spanning 28,000 files.

I am using command like this for aws:

aws s3 sync --endpoint= shows/108 s3://MYSPACECONTAINER/shows/108

I am at a loss. I have done this with no problem at Amazon, but DO is causing me headaches.

Hello, @marcpope

I have tried this with rclone and the files are not re-uploaded again.

I’m using Linux and the following command is working fine for me:

rclone sync space:/Books /home/sammy/books

Additionally you can add -vvv for more verbose output. This can help us with the troubleshoot process.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
