Newbie - Cant change VFS

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am trying to mount Mega drive but keep getting

" mega root 'path/to/files': --vfs-cache-mode writes or full is recommended for this remote as it can't stream"

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone version
rclone v1.62.2

  • os/version: debian 11.7 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.10.0-22-amd64 (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.20.2
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none"

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 remote:path/to/files /home/krome/media/4k

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

hello and welcome to the forum,

from the docs
File caching is necessary to make the VFS layer appear compatible with a normal file system

--vfs-cache-mode writes or full is recommended for this remote as it can't stream
that is rclone telling you which level of cache you need (off|minimal|writes|full)

so you need
rclone mount remote:path/to/files /home/krome/media/4k --vfs-cache-mode writes
rclone mount remote:path/to/files /home/krome/media/4k --vfs-cache-mode full

Now it's telling me that it's already mounted.

"2023/05/27 00:47:08 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: directory already mounted, use --allow-non-empty to mount anyway: /home/krome/media/4k"

maybe there is another instance of rclone mount running in the background?
if true, then you need to kill it and then run rclone mount again
