Any improvements/optimizations for me

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.52.2
os/arch: linux/amd64
go version: go1.14.4

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Headless Ubuntu 18.04

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive with Crypt


Excuse my english, it's not my mother tongue. Had spent the weeks in rclone and thanks to the homepage, wiki and the manual of Animosity022 I managed to do it successfully. My setup is Google Drive and then Crypt. No cache. That's because I haven't really understood cache yet, but I guess it's not really necessary. Media plays without problems in Plex. Mounting I do it with systemd with the following content:

Description=RClone Service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rclone mount GCrypt: /data/Mount \
--allow-other \
--allow-non-empty \
--vfs-cache-mode writes \
--dir-cache-time 96h \
--log-level INFO \
--log-file /opt/rclone/rclone.log \
--timeout 1h \
--umask 022
ExecStop=/bin/fusermount -uz /data/Mount


I don't have a problem, I just wanted to ask if there are any improvements and/or optimizations I can do. Oh well, if it is important, Plex runs under Docker and my server has 1 Gbit/s bandwidth (upload & download).

If you have any questions, please let me know.


hello and welcome to the forum,

--allow-non-empty is almost always a bad idea. be sure you need it.

Okay, thank you. :slight_smile:
