What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I want to make rclone drive for Sysnoplogy NAS drive.
I saw optional storage to config. but I couldn't find matched one.
Now I make it to mount drive. (sudo mount ///data /mnt)
Can I make rclone mount for Synology drive?
Can I get the config example?

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

Paste  log here

Sorry it is not clear really what the issue is...

What exactly you want to do? Mount some folder from your Synology on your computer? Or mount some remote on your Synology?

Thank you for your interest. And sorry for my not clear comment.

I use 2 remote. source is Synology and destination is S3.
I registered S3 to rclone.config, so I can use rclolne mount name (odc_s3)
But I can't register Synology to rclone.
Now I use file system mounted folder name for Synology (/mnt_rg)
I want to register Synology to rclone. but I can't found the solution config.
Is there any solution config??

post your rclone.conf content:

rclone config redacted

Then run:

rclone mount odc_s3: mount_point -vv

and post output here

For this you have to explain what you mean... I have no clue... or post what does not work

There are no problems with current use. However, I would like to use it more clearly.

odc_s3 is registered in rclone.config and is used normally as a remote backend point and destination.

However, Synology is used by mounting it as a network drive, not as an end point registered in rclone.config.

Is there a way to register Synology as a backend point in rclone.config?

AFAIK you can use SFTP, SMB or WebDAV protocols out of the box, e.g. create SMB share on your Synology and then run rclone config and create SMB remote.
