How to use the cache with mounted google drive?

OS: Windows 10 pro



I want to use Cache with a mounted Google Drive. He should cache every file I access for 24 hours and he should cache files I upload in case I lose internet connection, so he returns the upload when I have internet again.


I can not figure out how to combine cache with google drive.

What have I done so far:


I have setup my own ID and can mount google for the following path:

C:\Users\username\Desktop\rclone-v1.52.0-windows-amd64\rclone.exe mount gdrive: gdrive

I can access everything in C:\Users\username\Desktop\rclone-v1.52.0-windows-amd64\gdrive

I have tried to mount it as a net disc "G:" as well (which I prefer tbh) - it works too, but every file access takes a very long time. To show me just the directory takes literally minutes, with the folder path I get the result in 2-3 seconds. Very odd.


I can mount the cache with following cmd:

> C:\Users\username\Desktop\rclone-v1.52.0-windows-amd64>C:\Users\username\Desktop\rclone-v1.52.0-windows-amd64\rclone.exe mount cache: cache

And can access the "cache" folder, but somehow I can not figure out to make them kiss.

Now what?

Still no answer which is a shame. Is the problem that easy to solve that people assume I am just stupid to do it and do not bother response?

I'd recommend using the latest beta and using --vfs-cache-mode full.


  --vfs-cache-max-age duration             Max age of objects in the cache. (default 1h0m0s)
  --vfs-cache-max-size SizeSuffix          Max total size of objects in the cache. (default off)
  --vfs-cache-mode CacheMode               Cache mode off|minimal|writes|full (default off)
