Help! Rclone Mount - Windows


#1

I’ve been looking for couple months now on how to mount rclone in windows , i always get stuck not being able to mount it. there is not many info on how to for windows, no videos, im only saying this because i suck at linux or using commands. Now can anyone in this planet help me get this going “please” ? plex cloud is getting SHUT down in a couple of days i seriously need to get this mount going. here are my specs.

I have Gbit up down
I want to use Rclone to mount so i can point plex to the directory so i can stream up to 4k
im currently using rclone Browser to upload my stuff to cloud.
I have WinFsp installed
I have gdrive setup using rclone
After installing winfsp do i do anything?
I just need help using the CMD to mount the drive

Thanks!

Something like

rclone mount gdrive: Q:

where gdrive: is whatever you called your remote, and Q: is an unused disk letter.

That should create a new virtual disk Q: which you can access in the normal way.

C:\rclone>rclone mount Google: Q:
2018/11/25 11:29:54 NOTICE: Config file “C:\Users\Twisted\.config\rclone\rclone.conf” not found - using defaults
2018/11/25 11:29:54 Failed to create file system for “Google:”: didn’t find section in config file

i created my Google drive it’s Called Google i did it with RcloneBrowser , entered my own key and secret.
when i open my .rclone.config i get

[Google]
type = drive
client_id = **************************************************
client_secret =******************************
scope =
root_folder_id =
service_account_file =
token = {“access_token”:"***************************************

not sure why it’s saying 2018/11/25 11:29:54 NOTICE: Config file “C:\Users\Twisted\.config\rclone\rclone.conf”

when i pointed it to C:\rclone>rclone mount Google: Q using Rclone 1.42

I did add the .rclone.conf inside of C:\Users\Twisted.config\rclone but it didn’t do anything

thank you

Either pass in the config file using the --config flag, or use rclone config file then put the config file where it says - that should work hopefully :slight_smile:


#5

hi, thanks for the reply.

C:\rclone>rclone config file --config flag
Configuration file is stored at:
C:\rclone\flag

C:\rclone>rclone config file
Configuration file doesn’t exist, but rclone will use this path:
C:\Users\Twisted.config\rclone\rclone.conf

C:\rclone>rclone config
2018/11/25 15:01:55 NOTICE: Config file “C:\Users\Twisted\.config\rclone\rclone.conf” not found - using defaults
No remotes found - make a new one

ill just make a new one and see what’s going on , the config is there might be corrupted i have no clue .


#6

Ok i redid the drive and now i got this

C:\rclone>rclone mount gdrive: Q
The service rclone has been started.
it’s working thank you very much two last questions

  1. Is there a way i can have this started automatically with windows maybe in a batch file? i dont want the cmd windows to stay open

  2. Since im only using this for plex streaming , do i need to use any of the rclone commands like for cash or anything?

thanks !!


#7

Most people find https://nssm.cc/usage easiest to use for this. If you search the forum for nssm you’ll find some help for setting it up.

The defaults should work pretty well, but there is loads of discussion of this on the forum elsewhere :slight_smile:


#8

thanks, yeah default didnt work to good all i did was scan 130 movies and had hundreds of api bans in my cmd prompt . ill keep reading in forums , thanks again


#9

What are you seeing in the logs? Are you using your own API key?


#10

i was using same client id / key i had used when i created another gdrive with rclone browser GUI just to upload/download but to make sure i just created another one. i will report back after i delete the library and re create it to see if scans gives me api error again.

thanks

#12

What version of rclone are you using?

rclone version is the command to check.


#13

1.42 , reason why i stayed with this version is because rclonebrowser creater is no longer working on the app.
but i could always run 2 separate instance in different folder if you think that’s the issue.

I just installed latest now , will retry , also when i mount the dirve i dont use any of the rclone commands

I have 3 plex servers running at home . 2 x Nvidia shield that is attached to my Synology NAS " limited space "
Intel NUC I7 Paid version of Netdrive3, mounting gdrive with api keys works like a charm.

I wanted to create another one just for 4k movies on my main pc i9 9900k, i didnt want to buy another version of Netdrive so i figured i’d give this a try now that plexcloud is gone , Netdrive as been perfect for me , but my nuc suffers from remotely transcoding x265 50+gbit file 4k so figured i’d make a server just for that.

if it’s going to be to much work , with my home lan gbit upload and download i think i should just invest in couple 10TB HD and run everything from my home nas .

Toughs ?


#16

i need to figure out how to use cache


#17

No, you don’t need cache.

Your problem was 1.42 didn’t have the right changes in so you get banned on that version. Many folks, including me, don’t use the cache.

If you updated to the latest version, you have the proper changes already and just need to wait for your 24 hour ban to lift.
