Hi,

I know that maybe this question has been answered multiple times, but what I've seen in the forum is not solving my questions, maybe I'm too newbie for that. The thing is I want to move or copy files I have in /home/downloads/rutorrent to my gdrive and I really do not know how to do it.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that quick answer. And if I want to move them to a specific Gdrive folder, should I use:

cp -a -r -v --preserve=timestamps,ownership /home/downloads/rutorrent /mnt/move/example

? Thanks in advance

HI, I did what you said, and the files have been moved to /mnt/move/ but they are not uploaded to drive.
