MacOS finder replace file with new version

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

When I mount google drive using rclone and I replace a file by dragging a new file into the mounted directory with the same name, I would want the version to be updated in google drive (eg it creates version 2).
Instead, the old file is moved to trash and the new file is uploaded.
This means if I shared the previous file the new file is no longer shared.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.55.1

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

- os/type: darwin
- os/arch: arm64
- go/version: go1.16.3
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

That's how the mount works as not sure you can tune around that.

Interestingly this problem doesn't occur when replacing the file on the terminal using eg

echo 'test' > mount/myfile.txt

Then myfile.txt is replaced with a version 2 correctly.
Does this mean this is due to the finder behavior?

Could be? There's no debug log we can't compare the two ways.
