Yes, it's that bad.

If someone's question is trivial, then at least the first-level support person might be able to answer it properly. But my experience is that often the first-level person...

Thank-you! Having read hadaso's reply, I think the method suggested there is a good one.

Ah, rclone!

It's on my list of interesting bits of software that might solve problems for me, if I can only find the time to experiment with it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Not that I can see.
