I am trying to unmount and then remount my drives. My Plex library is always saying it cant load this library right now check back later. Someone said that they had that issue and unmounted the 3 mounts they had and then remounted and everything has been working since.

did not post the needed requested information, i can only give you examples, not exact commands.

to create a mount rclone mount gdrive: /mnt/gdrive

to unmount an existing mount fusermount -uz /mnt/gdrive

the latest stable version of rclone is v1.53.1, which has a new vfs cache.

The systemd information shows how to unmount and mount it on their wiki page:

OK I was trying to update it but it keeps saying please stop Rclone before proceeding.

if rclone is running, then you cannot update it.

how to you quit it? I did control C but that didnt work

i am not linux expert but this is what i do.

to get a list of rclones currently running

sudo ps -ax  | grep rclone
   3578 pts/0    S+     0:00 sudo rclone mount lcrypt01: /home/appbox/data/rclone/remotes/mounts/lcrypt01 --allow-other
   3579 pts/0    Sl+    0:01 rclone mount lcrypt01: /home/appbox/data/rclone/remotes/mounts/lcrypt01 --allow-other
   3788 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep rclone

I do not have root access

I dont know I really just follow the guide and do it.
It just works. It says I am not allowed to execute '/bin/ps -ax' as root on
But some how I upgraded Rclone last time without this.

You don't need root to create a mount for Plex. It's common to not use root on Linux as it creates a security risk and you do not need to run it as an elevated user.

Fuse based file system are user based and that's one of their great strengths. Many seedbox providers don't give root and they just run as the same user.

Did you setup rclone based on the wiki link they have?

The start and stop commands are listed in there.

correct, root is not needed to create a mount.
i got confused.

I am not seeing start and stop commands

if you want to test/tweak first, then run rclone mount from a terminal.

Ok but it still keeps saying Rclone is running. even when I run that it says the service is not loaded.

That's back to my original question, what did you use to set it up in the first if not their wiki guide?

I did use the guide. But when you initial run there is no Rclone running so no issue with that. Also I did not have to unmount anything.

What command in the guide did you use to start rclone?
I went right down this page I dont see a start Rclone I just did what it said
