I'm trying to use a mounted remote to download media into it but I don't know if what I'm trying to do is doable or if it will work.
I'm using youtube-dlp to download a bunch of channels onto the mounted remote. I'm sure many of you have used the software and know how it works. When it downloads a video file it creates several temporal/working files, some of them have extensions like part, part-Frag###, ytdl and some have a suffix like temp.ext or f###.ext. So, what I'm trying to achieve is for rclone to not upload any of those temporal files and only upload the finished mp4/mkv/webm files. Now, for most of them I've found that I can use --paths with yt-dlp, which is great but it sometimes still creates a .temp.ext file in the directory where all downloads are stored so I'm thinking on using filtering and adding this to the rclone command I've posted below:
I see, thanks. In the meantime should I use --vfs-write-back and increase the time, right? Or I'm misreading something?
Also, I'm using this --vfs-cache-max-age 0h20m0s because otherwise my C drive would get full with the cache files but I'm wondering, rclone never deletes a file in the cache if it hasn't uploaded it, right? I'm asking to be sure because from the logs I've searched for some files that had been purged and I have found every single one stored in the remote but there are so many files I can't keep up with everything to search for every file and make sure they have been uploaded, so, to put it simple, I want to decrease even further the time to 5 mins if possible but at the same time I want to be sure files wont get deleted when they haven't been uploaded to the remote even if more than 5 mins have passed and even if I unmount the remote and then mount it again as I've noticed that when mounting the remote the cache gets purged.
