Caching. i'm slow

:heartbeat:I'm very dumb. Why is caching important before it deletes itself? :heartbeat:

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version )


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

Windows 7, 64 bit

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

google drive (gsuite)

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

mount --allow-other 
--dir-cache-time 72h 
--drive-chunk-size 64M 
--log-level INFO 
--vfs-read-chunk-size 32M 
--vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off googlesuite1: X: 
--config "C:\Users\Naz\.config\rclone\rclone.conf" 
--vfs-cache-mode writes

i did follow a guide, can someone check these settings are still relevant?

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = drive
scope = drive
token = {"access_token":"
root_folder_id = 0AMDQM8YeWkEoUk9PVA

type = crypt
remote = googlesuite:/media
filename_encryption = off
directory_name_encryption = false
password = 

tar. bare in mind im very ignorant.

it depends on what you want to do.
what are you using the mount for?

i never use the cache backend.
at most i might use --vfs-cache-mode=writes

I use it for plex

what is the problem you are experiencing?

its all slow. If i upload through G suites browser it can take over an hour to sync or reveal itself locally. other times it works instantaneously. what sort of factors can effect this? The reason i dont sync through rclone is because i can't track the progress which i can do with g drive interface.

to understand what is going on, you need to use a log file

Thank you, silly question, how would i utilise this command?:
-P, --progress

add it to your rclone command.

set this to DEBUG
