rclone about

Get quota information from the remote.

Synopsis

rclone about prints quota information about a remote to standard output. The output is typically used, free, quota and trash contents.

E.g. Typical output from rclone about remote: is:

Total:   17G
Used:    7.444G
Free:    1.315G
Trashed: 100.000M
Other:   8.241G

Where the fields are:

  • Total: total size available.
  • Used: total size used
  • Free: total space available to this user.
  • Trashed: total space used by trash
  • Other: total amount in other storage (e.g. Gmail, Google Photos)
  • Objects: total number of objects in the storage

Not all backends print all fields. Information is not included if it is not provided by a backend. Where the value is unlimited it is omitted.

Applying a --full flag to the command prints the bytes in full, e.g.

Total:   18253611008
Used:    7993453766
Free:    1411001220
Trashed: 104857602
Other:   8849156022

A --json flag generates conveniently computer readable output, e.g.

{
    "total": 18253611008,
    "used": 7993453766,
    "trashed": 104857602,
    "other": 8849156022,
    "free": 1411001220
}
