How to sync the same GoogleDrive folder on linux and windows

On Linux I am syncing a Google Drive folder (in the cloud) to a local folder on an NTFS partition. All is well with that. I set it up with Rclone browser, no hitches.

I want to be able to sync the very same cloud folder to the very same local folder when I boot into Windows (dual boot machine here). How to set that up on Windows so it won't create a local duplicate, or worse, a cloud duplicate?)

Also, any suggestions for GUI on Windows, if I am still too lazy to figure out the CLI way?

I am running rclone and rclone browser on MX Linux AHS 19.3 x64 (based on Debian 10)
rclone version
rclone v1.45

  • os/arch: linux/amd64
  • go version: go1.11.6

rclone config
Current remotes:

Name Type
==== ====
shiureiharavbelsky drive

that version is years old best to download the latest stable.

you can use task scheduler to run rclone at boot

it is a dual boot system, so only one os at a time will sync, so i would think duplicates would not be a problem.
on local file systems, there cannot be duplicates.
