Cant find cache folder on Windows

I'm new to rclone and still trying to figure it all out.

Did a mount using the arguments below and tried to upload to large files. The space on my C:drive quickly ran out.
I've now done a new mount where I defined the cache dir.

However - the old cache is still taking up space om my And I can't find it...
Where should the files be as per default?

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 gcrypt: X: --config "C:\Users\X.config\rclone\rclone.conf" --vfs-cache-mode writes

hello and welcome to the forum,


That's what I thought - but there is no rclone folder within AppData\Local\ ..
Could it be someplace else?

perhaps search your c: drive for the filename of one of those large files that would in the that cache.

use a program like wiztree to search your drive for large sized folders

also, you can search for a folder with the same name as the remote.

rclone's cache creates a folder for each remote that is cached.


those are the names of my remotes in the cache

rclone help flags cache-dir will show you the root of the cache dir in the help

 rclone help flags cache-dir
  rclone help flags [<regexp to match>] [flags]

  -h, --help   help for flags

Global Flags:
      --cache-dir string   Directory rclone will use for caching. (default "/home/ncw/.cache/rclone")
