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

A log from the command with the -vv flag

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
