Rclone is an open source command-line program to manage data migration from S3 object storage, file storage and cloud storage solutions.

  7. Follow the Rclone documentation to transfer files/folders to your IDrive® e2 buckets.


Rclone checks for bucket creation permissions when uploading files:

  • If access key does not have ALL buckets access, you must add the following to your configuration (As the limited access key does not have bucket creation permissions): no_check_bucket = true Optionally instead of the config line, you may use the following flag: --s3-no-check-bucket
  • If default encryption is enabled on IDrive® e2 for the bucket, you may receive MD5 errors when uploading. As long as you are using the default encryption key (default behavior when enabled), your rclone config can add the following line: server_side_encryption = aws:kms

Note: Data restoration is handled by your specific backup solution provider and is affected by multiple variables that are unique to your environment. For application-related enquiries/support, it is strongly recommended you seek guidance from the technical team of your backup solution provider.
