yes you are correct because when I click on the main folder it downloads the last 2 ep's irrespective of my choice and as my data is limited I am trying to avoid this issue as much as possible and If I wanted to play a video on one of the sub folders rclone or some program again downloads the entire contents of the folder. Can this be fixed? or should I change my vfs cache mode to writes?
Thank you for all the help and I appreciate your patience in answering many of my questions. I have around 100Gb ish files on my gdrive and tbh my mpv has only default settings moreover I tried playing the videos with vlc but those videos are still being downloaded every time I access the sub folders. As you already know I am not that good at troubleshooting these things, which would you thinks is better if I change vfs cache to writes or minimal
I tried both of those commands and the files aren't downloaded into the e:\rclone directory and to answer your 2nd question I guess I prefer to stream rather download and store in local hdd moreover I am not that technical/tech-savvy to configure plex server. Hope you've understood my point.
Maybe I wasn't clear enough those commands don't really download anything compared to the vfs cache full, as they only read the data directly from google drive.
Have you tried raidrive program? If I access my gdrive folders from raidrive it doesn't anything additional, so my question isn't raidrive using the same rclone features to access gdrive? I apologize if that's not the case. But if it uses then how to configure the rclone to function in the same manner as raidrive.
when gdrive is mounted using rclone the mounted drive shows the sub folder contents with thumbnails but when you do the same with raidrive it displays the sub folder contents in a list form, I am not saying raidrive is better than rclone, but can this feature be used by some sort of command? If you don't think this possible then I will continue to use the minimal/writes command instead of full command, I apologize if wasted your precious time. But would mind telling the difference b/w minimal and writes command? if it's okay
