Sorry to disturb you again and for the new thread.
I am very pleased to use rclone since years and I appreciate a lot the effort Nick spends on this tool and the help of everybody.
I started 20 years ago using NAS at my home to store movies and music; at the beginning I was used to have separate phisical disks in the NAS box for production and for backup, then I split the production NAS from the NAS used for backup.
Years ago, when Amazon started to sell unlimited space on Amazon Cloud Drive, I moved the backup from my home to the cloud; then moved from Amazon to Google, where I am.
So… an HP Proliant server at my home running Ubuntu and SAMBA as a NAS server with about 10 TB and an rclone\sync script running every night to backup data on Gdrive with encryption.
Maybe it is time to definitely remove my 10 TB from home and trust just GDrive.
WHat do you think? is it a good idea? I will save power, space and… espensive hard disks.
If this approach is correct, since all my device need SAMBA, my idea is to use rclone to locally mount and decrypt my GDrive instance and then export the local mount point with SAMBA, READ ONLY mode.
I will use rclone copy to move files into the GDrive, because, even if I can successfully mount with SAMBA in write mode, I have problems and I am not 100% sure not to loose something.
In this way I will switch off the Proliant and its 10 TB HDDs and use just a little VMWare VM with Ubuntu just to mount the GDrive and export to my home network.
I started using rclone mount just some days ago and there are so many switches… so I am asking also to you, the expert ones, wich settings are the best for this scenario.
