note: rclone does have a smb remote but imho, not recommended for production.
- lacks modtime support.
- lacks file verification using checksum/hash.
- relies on an upstream third-party library. i could be wrong, but it has not been updated since

- too many bugs/issues at rclone github, including some are waiting on
waiting for upstream...
luckily, it is easy to access SMB/SAMBA shares using the os.
mount -t cifs -o username="username",password="password" //server/share /mnt/share rclone ls /mnt/share umount /mnt/share
- mount with drive letter
net use x: \\server\share /user:"username" "password" rclone ls x:\ net use /delete x:
- mount without drive letter
net use \\server\share /user:"username" "password" rclone ls \\server\share net use /delete \\server\share
