Help with new encrypted rclone?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

i created 2 encrypted rclone folders with 2 different passwords when rclone was first released. since, all i have done is upgrade rclone and drop my config in. so i completely forget how i set this up.
my question is, with just my config, is there a simple way for me to add a 3rd encrypted folder with a new password? if so, can you point me in the right direction of how to do that?

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
