Explore a remote with a text based user interface.
This displays a text based user interface allowing the navigation of a remote. It is most useful for answering the question - "What is using all my disk space?".
To make the user interface it first scans the entire remote given and builds an in memory representation. rclone ncdu can be used during this scanning phase and you will see it building up the directory structure as it goes along.
You can interact with the user interface using key presses, press '?' to toggle the help on and off. The supported keys are:
↑,↓ or k,j to Move →,l to enter ←,h to return g toggle graph c toggle counts a toggle average size in directory m toggle modified time u toggle human-readable format n,s,C,A,M sort by name,size,count,asize,mtime d delete file/directory v select file/directory V enter visual select mode D delete selected files/directories Y display current path ^L refresh screen (fix screen corruption) r recalculate file sizes ? to toggle help on and off q/ESC/^c to quit
Listed files/directories may be prefixed by a one-character flag, some of them combined with a description in brackets at end of line. These flags have the following meaning:
e means this is an empty directory, i.e. contains no files (but may contain empty subdirectories) ~ means this is a directory where some of the files (possibly in subdirectories) have unknown size, and therefore the directory size may be underestimated (and average size inaccurate, as it is average of the files with known sizes). . means an error occurred while reading a subdirectory, and therefore the directory size may be underestimated (and average size inaccurate) ! means an error occurred while reading this directory
This an homage to the ncdu tool but for rclone remotes. It is missing lots of features at the moment but is useful as it stands.
Note that it might take some time to delete big files/directories. The UI won't respond in the meantime since the deletion is done synchronously.
