Chunked Files Mount

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am testing As you know there are file limitations. So I used chucker, uploaded them into a folder.
I am not sure this is possible but if I mount that folder, will rclone see them as one file or not? If the answer yes, what is the correct mount flags for chunked files?

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

rclone v1.62.2
- os/version: debian 11.7 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.10.0-23-amd64 (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.20.2
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

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


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

rclone mount box: /home/cloud  --vfs-cache-mode full

Yes if you mount this folder you will see single files - chunker remote splits files on upload and transparently merges on download.

There are no special flags for mounting chunker remote. So below is perfectly fine.

rclone mount box: /home/cloud  --vfs-cache-mode full

Thank you so much for your reply. I tested again, chunked, encrypted and mount but it is not a single file. I guess I am still missing something.

rclone mount bx: /home/username/box/   --config /home/username/.config/rclone/rclone.conf --allow-other  --vfs-cache-mode full
type = box
token = 

type = crypt
remote = box:
password = 
password2 = 

type = chunker
remote = bx:
chunk_size = 200Mi



you have to mount chunker remote:

rclone mount chunker: /home/username/box/ --config /home/username/.config/rclone/rclone.conf --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode full

You are totally right. My mistake. Thanks for your help :slight_smile:
