Mounting rclone union as MergerFS on Windows

I want to use rclone union backend with multiple local file system backend as a alternative on Windows.

I plan to use SnapRAID, but it will work best with a union-like file system. However, it is not a good idea to move files around after using snapRAID.

  1. I do know about StableBit DrivePool, but it is paid software and it will try to "balancing the drive pool".
  2. I want to have a SSD write cache to speed up write, and prevent write action when snapRAID is doing its thing (e.g. syncing)
  3. WinFSP is fast, but require correct parameters to work.

How can I get the most out of rclone mount? like how to setup caching.

All depends on your specific requirement. There is not one perfect setup for all. Start simple and use defaults - they are well thought through and usually do good job.

Start with reading documentation.

I suggest you start with:

rclone mount src: /path/to/mountpoint --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 100G --cache-dir /path/to/local/cache
