Cache - ERROR : : list: save error: 'bucket name required'


Properly my configuration but I get an error when trying to mount a encrypted mount point or a cache mount point on OSX Sierra. Any help greatly appreciated.

Error ERROR : : list: save error: ‘bucket name required’

Gdrive has folder media

Drive config
GDrive -> Cache -> encrypted

/usr/local/bin/rclone mount gcache: /Users/xbmc/media
-v 3

type = drive
client_id = removed
client_secret = removed
scope = drive
root_folder_id =
service_account_file =

type = crypt
remote = gcache:
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = removed
password2 = removed

type = cache
remote = gdrive:media
plex_url =
plex_username =
plex_password =


That confusingly is an error from boltdb which is used by cache.

Not sure exactly what is happening, but I suspect running cache once with --cache-db-purge will purge the cache database and it will work…


I tried --cache-db-purge and deleting the cache db but still get the same error. Any ideas?


Sorry ignore my last post as I have now got the cache working.

Thanks for your help.



I have rclone working with cache -> encrypt but the following error occurs intermittently;

2018/06/09 22:06:49 ERROR : : list: save error: ‘bucket name required’
2018/06/09 22:11:25 ERROR : : list: save error: ‘bucket name required’


I don’t know what could be causing that error. @remus.bunduc any ideas?


It seems caching of the root folder got bugged when trying to fix a performance issue. I don’t think there was any major impact to it but at any rate: here’s the beta with the fix.


I have updated to the latest beta the error has been fixed.

Thanks for your help.
