Failed to create file system for "icedrive:": didn't find section in config file

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

mount does not work with or without any extra parameters.

IMPORTANT: other commands work!. I already did copy for my storage.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.55.1

  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.3
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Lubuntu 20.04

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

Icedrive via webdav

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

rclone mount icedrice: /rock/icedrive_webdav_mount/ --cache-dir /rock/icedrive_mount_cache --vfs-cache-mode full --config=/home/sam/.config/rclone/rclone.conf -vv

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = webdav
url =
vendor = other
user = REMOVED
pass = REMOVED

A log from the command with the -vv flag

The log indicates your remote isn't named that or it's pointing to a different location / different user.

You can do:

felix@gemini:~$ rclone listremotes
felix@gemini:~$ rclone config file
Configuration file is stored at:

Is my setup.


for the mount command, the remote name is not correct.
should be rclone mount icedrive:
