Help with 403 on gdrive?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

All of a sudden I started getting the dreaded Error 403 downloadQuotaExceeded from a mounted gdrive. Supposedly it should affect just one file in particular but I was getting it for each and every file on this mount. Adding --tpslimit 2 seems to have fixed the bans but I'm nowhere near figuring out what started accessing this mount so often as to trip the gdrive quota.

Are these entries from the log below the possible culprit?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

windows 10

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

google drive

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

mount --tpslimit 2 --log-level DEBUG --log-file=rclonet.log --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode=writes --fast-list --drive-stop-on-upload-limit --vfs-cache-max-size 100G secret: t:

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag


for that mount, are you using a media server like plex?

--allow-other - does nothing on windows
--fast-list - does nothing on a mount.

Thanks for pointing out. Yes, using Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, Overseerr...

those app can download a tremendous amount of data.

here are some tips from a fellow rcloner

and make your rclone command look like this
