Cache being deprecated. What should I changed to be future ready?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

rclone service mount for music files to be played via Plex. I'm not having any performance issues, but I get a warning so I'd like to update whatever is necessary to avoid issues once cache is deprecated.

Rclone version:

rclone v1.63.1

Which cloud storage system are you using?


The command you were trying to run:

rclone mount cachemusicremote: /mnt/music --config=/home/myuser/.config/rclone/rclone.conf --log-file=/opt/music.log --allow-other

The rclone config content:

type = dropbox
token = ----
client_id = ----
client_secret = ---

type = cache
remote = dropboxmusic:Music
chunk_size = 10M
 info_age = 2d
chunk_total_size = 1G
plex_username = ------
plex_password = ---------
plex_url = https://-------.tld
plex_token = ------------

A log from the command with the -vv flag

WARNING: Cache backend is deprecated and may be removed in future. Please use VFS instead.

Yes cache backend you are using is deprecated. It has bugs nobody will fix etc.

You should use VFS caching. Here good example for dropbox mount:

However if cache works for you and you do not have any issues - you can continue using it and ignore warnings.
