I'm sorry for such an 87 opening statement, and I promise to be no nonsense.

rclone one line command, backup all files on the hard disk to Google Drive or other space.
And it's super easy to set up! Below I demonstrate the simplest method, use the built-in GUI to set up Config, and then enter the command to start the backup.

Set up Config to connect to the cloud

After downloading rclone, cd to the same folder, enter the following commands to Terminal such as cmd / bash / zsh.

rclone rcd --rc-web-gui

powershell requires input

"./rclone.exe" rcd --rc-web-gui

This will open the local webserver, allowing you to have an easy-to-use interface.
Enter Config, go to Google Developer Console to open Google Drive Api, set OAuth, copy ID and Key to the corresponding fields, and the next step will be done.

Click Explorer, click the path input box, it will jump out of the Config Name you just set. After clicking, you can browse the cloud drive just like the web version of Google Drive. We create the destination folder that we want to back up and copy the current path, such as this format:

We can go back to Terminal and enter Ctrl + C or Command + C Shut down the webserver.

Enter the following command and it will start backing up everything in C: to Google Drive!
--progress It is to return the upload progress. Without this arg, the Terminal will only be blank, and there is no way to know the backup progress.

rclone copy "C:/" "MyGoogleDrive01:/MyBackupFolder/Laptop01/2022" --progress

Files that fail to copy are skipped, such as files occupied by the system.
