I want to check I have used the correct flags etc when setting this up so it doesn't use massive amounts of my hard drive It all mounts etc but don't want to to have the HDD full because I haven't used the correct amount.
I have a 200gb HDD in my set up and 12gm ram
What is your rclone version (output from rclone version) 1.56.2
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone mount gdrive: /home/apps/hhh/mount --vfs-cache-mode full --allow-other
can you post the output of rclone config show, redact id/secret/password/token?
what do you plan to use the rclone mount for?
can can set a soft limit on the total size of the vfs cache --vfs-cache-max-size SizeSuffix Max total size of objects in the cache. (default off)
" If using --vfs-cache-max-size note that the cache may exceed this size for two reasons. Firstly because it is only checked every --vfs-cache-poll-interval. Secondly because open files cannot be evicted from the cache."
fwiw, always best to use a few flags as possible and if needed add/tweak the flags.
i do not think it should be an issue as the defaults work well.
if you find that you have issues, then we can add/tweak the vfs flags, assuming that you choose to use the vfs cache.
the issue is when scanning a library the first time or when scanning for new media.
if you enable thumbnails, previews and other such features, jellyfin will have to fully download each and every media file.
would that be the same for plex? i have turned off a lot of features for plex and will do for jellyfin if needed as well.
if the above command i have used is best for plex and jellyfin then i will keep it as it is. i only have a 200gb hdd on this server i use for rclone and plex so didnt want to run out and same time dont wanna hit api daily limits either
