Mount multiple "crypts"

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

How can I setup Rclone to mount multiple crypt locations?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone 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)


On my Raspberry Pi I have "crypt, drive, and cache" setup to connect to Gsuite, and have no issues with this. On my Windows machine, I connect to the same Gsuite folder with crypt and drive (no cache).

I now have another folder in Gsuite that I would like to setup with rclone and mount to my Windows machine. How do I do this? Do I run rclone config and create another crypt location that points to the new folder, and when configuring, is it option 10 for "crypt" or 13 for "drive"?

Can the new location be mounted with the same command string in nssm, or will it need it's own mount so that I have drive "X", and drive "Y" locations?

thank you,


is that other folder inside a existing remote or not?
if yes, then mount it. no need to create a new remote.
if no, then create a new remote and mount that.

when you posted, you were asked for
config file - redact id and paswords
rclone commands.

  • the original location is gdrive: /data/crypt. The new location is /data/windows-backup. Inside the existing remote and should be able to mount (thanks).

  • rclone config is below:
    type = drive
    client_id = ******
    client_secret = ******
    scope = drive
    token = ******

    type = crypt
    remote = gdrive:/data/crypt
    filename_encryption = standard
    directory_name_encryption = true
    password = ********************
    password2 = ********************

  • rclone mount using the command below. The Raspberry PI is the one that does the heavy lifting and runs PLEX. The Windows machine is just to have access to the files for management and to backup Windows files.

mount gcrypt: X: --config "c:\rclone\rclone.conf"

in this case, you would need to create a new crypt remote.
option 10 for "crypt"

for example

type = crypt
remote = gdrive:/data/windows-backup
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = ********************
password2 = ********************

rclone mount gcrypt-windows-backup: Y: --config=c:\rclone\rclone.conf


thank you so much, that work a treat.
