I have been using an older version for a while and recently upgraded to 8.7.5.

My issue is that now PGBlitz log shows the file is uploaded then it deletes the local copy, but the file was not actually uploaded to drive. So when the local copy is deleted the file no longer exists anywhere.

I am using Encrypted blitz, i can see all the existing file in my drive that were put there pre-upgrade so i know my key and salt are correct.

I can navigate to /mnt/tcrypt/movies/SomeMovie and touch a text.txt file and it will appear in drive (checking it via a local rclone mount).

I went and upped the number of keys from 2 to 6 thinking maybe it was that i had capped out my upload and google was kicking it back for whatever reason. Redeployed with no visible errors.
Tried again, same thing.

not sure how to troubleshoot this further as the logs are not helping. It shows up whole the file is local, Sonarr see's it, plex grabs it, etc. Once upload is 'finished' and file is delete my pgblitz mover, it all goes away.

Any assistance is appreciated.

i have been looking since well before i posted this. Ended up downgrading PG to 8.5 because it was working, not change. Did an rclone dedupe on drive. All that did was widdle down the collection for 1100 movies to 200. I feel like my stuff is all still there and just not showing in the mount though as noted by the below.

[email protected] /mnt/tcrypt/movies # ls | grep Gemini
[email protected] /mnt/tcrypt/movies # rclone --config /opt/appdata/plexguide/rclone.conf ls tcrypt: | grep Gemini
    88477 movies/Gemini Man (2019)/Gemini Man (2019) Bluray-480p.en.srt
     1333 movies/Gemini Man (2019)/Gemini Man (2019) Bluray-480p.nfo
1885947800 movies/Gemini Man (2019)/Gemini Man (2019) Bluray-480p.mkv

   581147 movies/Gemini Man (2019)/poster.jpg
i can see the files if i ls the mount directly but not if i browse the mount of tcrypt. It looks like the ls command traverses the files differently than mount.

I have the exact same issue, creating a file on /mnt/tcrypt works fine. After uploading sequenze (pgblitz) has finished, the file is gone (locally and in the cloud)

Any advise or feedback would be much appreciated :)

Yo dude, i had this problem before, i just reinstalled my whole server, i know it may be a little over the top. But totally reinstalling a fresh ubuntu image worked. If you can swing it its worth a try, Last resort though lol. PG is all i got on my server so it was no biggie for me, but idk your case.
