Hi all,

I'm new to rclone and I want to mount my Shared Google Drive to my local system. So, I'm trying to execute this command rclone mount myDrive:/ ~/myFolder/ but nothing happens!

I forgot to add that rclone could see my folders and files inside my Shared Drive

    rclone tree DerekDrive:/
    Enter configuration password:
    ├── drive
    └── test

    0 directories, 0 files

Any idea?
I'm using MacOS Catalina with latest version of osxFUSE driver. I installed rclone via homebrew

What do you mean nothing happens?

What does rclone version show?

If you type that in a terminal, it would just run. You'd want to use --daemon or something to run it in the background. It's also better to use a full path rather than ~.

I have to attach the photo where you can see that mounting is endless. I can't send links due to the fact that I'm new here
sun9-45_userapi.com/c854524/v854524009/2310e2/H-KmWnL5V60.jpg replace _ with a dot to see the screenshot

You asked about the version, so

$rclone --version                      
rclone v1.51.0
- os/arch: darwin/amd64
- go version: go1.13.7

That's what it is supposed to do. A mount is a process that runs and if you don't put it into the background with something like --daemon, that's expected behavior.

I don't know what actually happened but now I have solved my problem with endless execution and now rclone raise me some errors:
XXXXX is my Shared Drive Id

rclone mount DerekDrive:/ ~/drive

Doesn't seem like the drive is authorized. You need to run through the config and grab a token or run rclone authorize drive

I refreshed the token but the endless execution returned :confused:

Oh yes, can a long disk mount be associated with a large Shared Google Drive volume? About 20TB. I received this GDrive only yesterday and did not fill it with anything yet

The size of the drive really doesn't matter.

Again, for the 'endless execution' the command runs and will not return a prompt unless you use --daemon as that runs it in the background.

I see, but it isn't normal to mount empty folder for 40+ minutes (imho)
My acquaintances mounts it for several seconds or about 2+/- minutes :confused:

I'm unfortunately not following as if you mount a driver, you can access it immediately.

There isn't a wait to access it.

Before you mount it, you may want and see if there are files there or is it something else.

You can run;

rclone ls nameofremote:

and see the contents of the remote.
