RcloneBrowser Portable, simple cross platform GUI for rclone/rsync!
"While RcloneBrowser integrates pretty much all the Rclone features in its user interface, adding a new remote storage service is not supported by it, and the configuration must be performed via command line. However, for most, the configuration is as easy as entering "y" a few times in a terminal. " —Andrew, (February 21, 2017)
"If you know what RSync is (which is great!), you’ll love RClone. It’s basically rsync for cloud storage. RCloneBrowser is the GUI for RClone!" —Alistair Ross, (February 6, 2017)
"Rclone is an excellent tool which can help with all kinds of cloud storage tasks. Novices can quickly set up a batch file to copy or sync a folder or two, while experts can fine-tune operations with a stack of settings and options (include/ exclude filters, bandwidth limiting, deduplication, parallel file transfers, retries, timeouts and more)." —Mike Williams, (17 Oct 2016)
