Find and remove duplicate files in a pCloud account

Project description

pclean identifies and removes duplicate files within a pCloud account.

By using pCloud’s API, pclean is able to determine duplicate files without needing to download any files from the cloud, preserving your pCloud bandwidth quota and making it pretty quick.


Python 3.6 is required purely due to the use of the f-strings. All other requirements can be installed via pip with

pip install .

The application needs you to configure your pCloud username and password which it will save in plain text to $HOME/.config/pclean.ini:

pclean auth <username> <password>


To report all duplicate files from the directory /copies that can be found in /orig you would run:

pclean -n clean /orig /copies

The -n flag is effectively a dry run and will just report the duplicates. By omitting -n the duplicates will also be removed.


The software is provided as is and the author accepts no responsibility for files lost due to bugs or misuse or anything else.
