Mega for Business

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

slow speed

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

latest oficial version

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

windows 10

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


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone mount Mega:/Media M: --vfs-cache-mode writes


was testing the Mega option for business and via browser seems to be very very fast. getting 40/50/60 on the download side but via rclone... stuck on 1Mb cant donwnload at higher speed.

any special option for this storage provider?

Best regards, and thanks for the time to read the topic

What version are you runnig?
Can you share a debug log with -vv and the output of the issue?



i'm using the 1.53.1 on a win10 machine for now.

i'm provide the log in a bit and also some pictures to demonstrate what i'm saying.1 2

The log is really what is needed.

Send it via ptv @Animosity022

Good morning,

i sent an email to Mega to get a reply on their side and they confirm that no limit is imposed on their end on the business account.

Today did another rclone setup on different computer and another ISP, same result... cant download more then 2/3Mb Vs the 40/50 even 60 of browser. Can the limit be because of the way rclone establish the connection?

You may want to try vfs-cache-mode full and see how that works out for you.

Mega is generally slow via their API and while they don't throttle, they are sure are not fast based on the posts I've seen from people.

There isn't anything wrong in the logs.


will try it later on today to see if it makes a difference.

Their reply did not bring anything new to the table but i'll leave it paste below:
