Any recommndations for mounting with two machines to one RemoteDir?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Trying to mount with two machines to single one RemoteDir at the same time but don't want both machines have a copy of each other files.

machine1/backup1 ----> RemoteDir
machine2/backup2 ----> RemoteDir

constantly, since some new and small files adding to backup1 and backup2

What command is better than mount in this situation ?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.58.0
- os/version: ubuntu 20.04 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.13.0 (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.8
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

Are you on the latest version of rclone? You can validate by checking the version listed here:
 --> Yes

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

#### The command you were trying to run (eg `rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp`)

on machine1, below command is ran.

rclone mount RemoteDir: backup1 --daemon

if similarly commands is ran on machine2, files from machine1 will be added to machine2, how can we avoid that ?


why must both machines need to share a single dir on the same remote?

if you do not want each machine to see each other files, what is wrong with this?
on machine1
rclone mount RemoteDir:dir1 /path/to/local/dir
on machine 2
rclone mount RemoteDir:dir2 /path/to/local/dir

currently, I am creating two remote Dirs now.

The reason asked here, is also wanted to find out if there is one-way mounting, which is optimized for uploading only.

well, it is the application that uses the mount, that request files to be uploaded or downloaded.
so have the app upload only.
