Thank you for your patience as I'm really new to rclone. I'm trying to mount rclone onto an NAS server I have at my house. I have a WD My Cloud EX2 Ultra. I have set up a shared folder on the NAS and have mapped a drive to it's file location (z:). Just to try to get it to work, the drive is a public drive that doesn't have any passwords to get into it. I've tested mounting and here is an example that does work on my computer:
rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full gDrive:/ g:
I've also been able to mount to my local hard drive with the same command, like:
rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full gDrive:/ c:/testFolder
The "testFolder" doesn't actually exist yet and rclone creates the folder for me.
However, when I try to mount to the mapped network drive that goes to my WD NAS, it gives me an error.
The command looks like
rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full gDrive:/ z:/testFolder
where z: is the mapped drive.
The error says:
Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: parent of mountpoint directory does not exist: z:\testFolder
So I don't get why I can use the command to mount to one drive (c:) and simply changing the drive letter to a drive that is mapped (z:) will give me an error.
I've also tried the command:
rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full gDrive:/ \\MYCLOUDEX2ULTRA\googledrive\testFile
That does work in the sense of having a successful mount, but it will create a new network drive "y:" and isn't mounted to the actual NAS mapped folder (z:)
By the way, I have actually tried to install rclone onto the WD Mycloud NAS by following someone's example online of getting PuTTY and going through the SSH. I followed the set of instructions I found online and I couldn't install rclone on the NAS. The first direction of
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k ssh -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss root@`yourwdmycloudaddress
that I seemed to not do correctly. I copied it from this forum: Rclone on MyCloud Mirror - My Cloud 3rd Party & Mobile Apps - WD Community
If there's an updated version on how to do this with Mycloud, that would be great too.
Please help with ideas or suggestions and if you could dumb them down for me somewhat and assume I'm not a brilliant computer guy, I'd appreciate it.
I just installed rclone so I know I've got the latest version. I also downloaded and installed the latest version of WinFsp. I'm assuming this is all working as I can mount it on my local hard drive.
I've been primarily using Windows 7 64bits. I do have a Windows 10 computer, but assume it's not necessary as I'd like my Windows 7 computer to be the one that is always on with the mount going.
