Google crypt cache or not for plex?

it is a lot of time that i don't touch my config and i'm wondering if cache is still needed to you with plex.

This is my rclone config:

type = drive
client_id = XXXX
client_secret = XXX
scope = drive
token = XXXX
root_folder_id = XXXXX

type = cache
remote = googledrive_info:
plex_url = XXXX
plex_username = XXXXX
plex_password = XXXXX
plex_token = XXXX

type = crypt
remote = gcache_info:crypt
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = XXXXX
password2 = XXXXXX

type = crypt
remote = googledrive_info:crypt
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = XXXXXX
password2 = XXXXX

And this is my Mount file

nohup rclone -v mount \
--allow-other \
--vfs-cache-mode writes \
--rc --rc-files /opt/rcloneMon --rc-user=XXXX --rc-pass=XXXX \
--cache-tmp-upload-path /root/data \
--cache-tmp-wait-time 30m \
--log-file /root/logs/rclone.log \
cachecrypt_info:/ /media/google_crypt &

Do you think i still need cache not to get google ban or not?

In the case i could not use cache, which settings should i need?

I'm using:
rclone v1.51.0

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.7

what kind of ban are you worried about?
if you are worried about api calls, i understand you would need to use over 1,000,000,000 per day.

No, cache is not needed since vfs chunked reading was introduced about 2 years back now.

Can you tell me how to set vfs up?

The settings that I personally use are here:

Thank you so much, i'll try to adjust my config

Sorry, in your configuration samples i don't find anything about vfs chunked reading, is it by default in new rclone?

Yes, if you have a release from the last about 2 years.

Perfect, i have rclone v1.51.0 so i should be ok.
