Mail.ru Cloud is a cloud storage provided by a Russian internet company Mail.Ru Group. The official desktop client is Disk-O:, available on Windows and Mac OS.
Currently it is recommended to disable 2FA on Mail.ru accounts intended for rclone until it gets eventually implemented.

Here is an example of making a mailru configuration.
First create a Mail.ru Cloud account and choose a tariff.
You will need to log in and create an app password for rclone. Rclone
will not work with your normal username and password - it will
give an error like
oauth2: server response missing access_token.
This will guide you through an interactive setup process:
No remotes found, make a new one? n) New remote s) Set configuration password q) Quit config n/s/q> n name> remote Type of storage to configure. Type of storage to configure. Enter a string value. Press Enter for the default (""). Choose a number from below, or type in your own value [snip] XX / Mail.ru Cloud \ "mailru" [snip] Storage> mailru User name (usually email) Enter a string value. Press Enter for the default (""). user> email@example.com Password This must be an app password - rclone will not work with your normal password. See the Configuration section in the docs for how to make an app password. y) Yes type in my own password g) Generate random password y/g> y Enter the password: password: Confirm the password: password: Skip full upload if there is another file with same data hash. This feature is called "speedup" or "put by hash". It is especially efficient in case of generally available files like popular books, video or audio clips [snip] Enter a boolean value (true or false). Press Enter for the default ("true"). Choose a number from below, or type in your own value 1 / Enable \ "true" 2 / Disable \ "false" speedup_enable> 1 Edit advanced config? (y/n) y) Yes n) No y/n> n Remote config -------------------- [remote] type = mailru user = firstname.lastname@example.org pass = *** ENCRYPTED *** speedup_enable = true -------------------- y) Yes this is OK e) Edit this remote d) Delete this remote y/e/d> y
Configuration of this backend does not require a local web browser. You can use the configured backend as shown below:
See top level directories
rclone lsd remote:
Make a new directory
rclone mkdir remote:directory
List the contents of a directory
rclone ls remote:directory
/home/local/directory to the remote path, deleting any
excess files in the path.
rclone sync --interactive /home/local/directory remote:directory
Files support a modification time attribute with up to 1 second precision. Directories do not have a modification time, which is shown as "Jan 1 1970".
Hash sums use a custom Mail.ru algorithm based on SHA1. If file size is less than or equal to the SHA1 block size (20 bytes), its hash is simply its data right-padded with zero bytes. Hash sum of a larger file is computed as a SHA1 sum of the file data bytes concatenated with a decimal representation of the data length.
Removing a file or directory actually moves it to the trash, which is not
visible to rclone but can be seen in a web browser. The trashed file
still occupies part of total quota. If you wish to empty your trash
and free some quota, you can use the
rclone cleanup remote: command,
which will permanently delete all your trashed files.
This command does not take any path arguments.
To view your current quota you can use the
rclone about remote:
command which will display your usage limit (quota) and the current usage.
In addition to the default restricted characters set the following characters are also replaced:
Invalid UTF-8 bytes will also be replaced, as they can't be used in JSON strings.
Here are the Standard options specific to mailru (Mail.ru Cloud).
User name (usually email).
This must be an app password - rclone will not work with your normal password. See the Configuration section in the docs for how to make an app password.
NB Input to this must be obscured - see rclone obscure.
Skip full upload if there is another file with same data hash.
This feature is called "speedup" or "put by hash". It is especially efficient in case of generally available files like popular books, video or audio clips, because files are searched by hash in all accounts of all mailru users. It is meaningless and ineffective if source file is unique or encrypted. Please note that rclone may need local memory and disk space to calculate content hash in advance and decide whether full upload is required. Also, if rclone does not know file size in advance (e.g. in case of streaming or partial uploads), it will not even try this optimization.
Here are the Advanced options specific to mailru (Mail.ru Cloud).
Comma separated list of file name patterns eligible for speedup (put by hash).
Patterns are case insensitive and can contain '*' or '?' meta characters.
This option allows you to disable speedup (put by hash) for large files.
Reason is that preliminary hashing can exhaust your RAM or disk space.
Files larger than the size given below will always be hashed on disk.
What should copy do if file checksum is mismatched or invalid.
HTTP user agent used internally by client.
Defaults to "rclone/VERSION" or "--user-agent" provided on command line.
Comma separated list of internal maintenance flags.
This option must not be used by an ordinary user. It is intended only to facilitate remote troubleshooting of backend issues. Strict meaning of flags is not documented and not guaranteed to persist between releases. Quirks will be removed when the backend grows stable. Supported quirks: atomicmkdir binlist unknowndirs
The encoding for the backend.
See the encoding section in the overview for more info.
File size limits depend on your account. A single file size is limited by 2G for a free account and unlimited for paid tariffs. Please refer to the Mail.ru site for the total uploaded size limits.
Note that Mailru is case insensitive so you can't have a file called "Hello.doc" and one called "hello.doc".
