is it possible to cache files from google drive somehow? so that the accesses go to the cache, say, on the nvme disk, or ram
My problem is that accessing google drive takes a long time to respond, I think creating a cache can speed it up, I made a mount point with --cache-dir but it was not filled with anything.
Can anyone help with this, I am ready to hire such a person.
as you are not providing the requested information, hard to share good advice.
--- the redacted config file
--- the exact command, not just a snippet.
first, need to clean up those flags, understand what they do
--- remove --allow-non-empty, unless you are 1000% sure you need it.
--- --cache-tmp-upload-path does nothing, can remove that.
--- you have a bunch of duplicate flags, some with conflicting values
for example, if you have a 10GB video file in gdrive and use a media player to stream the first 10 seconds.
then rclone will only download that 10 seconds of the file, so the cache will contain only a small part of that 10GB file.
rclone caches only the chunks of the file accessed by whatever app you are using.
if you have a 10GB file in gdrive, and only access 1MB, then rclone only downloads 1MB of data into the vfs file cache.
i offered a way to download the full file into the vfs file cache.
