Hello guys. EduTechTainMent is here to show you guys how to use rclone script to copy files from Team Drive to Team Drive seamlessly. Rclone is the best option for noobs.
This is particularly important if you are facing problems setting up any of the other alternatives that allow for copying terabytes of data without the daily 750Gb limit of Google- such as AutoRclone, Folderclone and Gclone. These other methods make use of service accounts. AutoRclone is particularly popular.
Why Use This Method
1. It will take about 3 to 5 minutes to set this up and running.
You can programmatically copy all files/folders in a team drive to your own personal team drive.
You don’t need to add service accounts to the source team drive. This is a huge bottleneck for many because AutoRclone mostly require you to copy SA into both the source and destination TD, but most TD administrators/owners restrict this access.
Your copying task continues from where it left off the previous day if you reach your daily maximum transfer cap of 750Gb.
You can however bypass this by having more than one Google account linked to the team drive (after all Google accounts are free to open).
One of the many reasons why I love using this method is that it affords me the opportunity to have fine-grained control of the files I wish to copy and not just copy all the useful and some useless (at least to me) files in the source team drives since many are publicly sourced. A lot of TD admins/owners are battling with the task of organizing files in their TD. From the very get-go, you can choose where you want your files to go- such as Movies folder, Series folder, Courses folder, Books, etc.
Rclone remotes should be set up for both your team drive and the source team drive. Read how to set it up here.
