Mount Google Drive and sync with SyncThing

I need two way sync with my nas and Google Drive so I thought about mounting it as local drive and sync it with SyncThing. What do you think about this solution?

there is a rclone bisync tool by fellow rcloner @jwink3101
Beta Testers Wanted: New bi-directional rclone wrapper

bisync at github

tho rclone mount and syncthing should work.
try that on a set of test folders and let us know what happens.

Thanks for the shoutout. That’s my older tool that I shoehorned rclone to fit.

Check out GitHub - Jwink3101/syncrclone: Python-based bi-direction sync tool for rclone for a newer and way better one!

Edit: geez. I didn’t even read my own post. You did link to the right thing. Sorry

I tried the rclone mount way buy there is something wrong in my docker compose. In the web-gui I see my Google Drive files while in the machine the folder is created but it is empty. Can you take a look at my yaml please?

version: "3.9"
    image: rclone/rclone:latest
    container_name: rclone
      - SYS_ADMIN
      - /dev/fuse
      - apparmor:unconfined
    command: rcd --rc-web-gui --rc-addr :5572 --rc-user admin --rc-pass XXXXXX
      - 5572:5572

have you seen

You don't need docker compose or docker plugin.
They introduce bind mount propagation between containers and host tricks hurting you here.
Their complexity is unwarranted in your case.
rclone is a static binary without dependencies - install (unpack) it directly on host according to Install
Prepare a config, run rclone mount directly, and play with SyncThing.
Use saved time for something pleasant.

I agree with you indeed the first time I installed normally and I was able to see my Gdrive files inside Openmediavault but I have permission issue with SMB and with Syncthing so I decided to try the Docker way.

Now with Docker I have the opposite problem: I can see files inside Docker but not in the outside folder. I really don't understand what's wrong with my compose.
