Not able to connect to teamdrive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I've set up two teamdrives with rclone but i am not able to ls the remote or to mount it. Maybe i am doing it wrong.

Here is the rclone config
type = drive
scope = drive
use_trash = false
skip_gdocs = false
skip_checksum_gphotos = false
trashed_only = false
allow_import_name_change = false
alternate_export = false
acknowledge_abuse = false
keep_revision_forever = false
server_side_across_configs = true
token = {
team_drive =
shared_with_me = true

type = drive
scope = drive
server_side_across_configs = true
token =
team_drive =
shared_with_me = true

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.51.0

  • os/arch: windows/amd64
  • go version: go1.13.7

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Windows 10 64bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive / Teamdrive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

i've tried many commands like
rclone ls remote:TD
rclone ls TD://

but i am not sure how i have to use it properly.

A log from the command with the -vv flag (eg output from rclone -vv copy /tmp remote:tmp)

2020/04/24 11:04:51 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.51.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "-vv" "copy" "/tmp" "remote:tmp"]
2020/04/24 11:04:51 DEBUG : Using config file from "C:\Users\Seruschl\.config\rclone\rclone.conf"
2020/04/24 11:04:51 Failed to create file system for "remote:tmp": didn't find section in config file

I hope someone can halp me with this

Kind regards

The command should be rclone ls TD:. If that doesn't work, please attach the debug logs for it.

Thanks for this advice. The output for
rclone>rclone -vv copy /tmp TD:tmp is
2020/04/24 13:20:57 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.51.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "-vv" "copy" "/tmp" "TD:tmp"]

I think i will delete the config and set all up again

So i've set all up again and it is still the same. I don't get any informations from GDrive.

I changed the name for the remote but when i try to list all with

rclone ls GDrive:

i get nothing in return

rclone 3

That connected and looks like you have no files in there as there are no errors.

Can you copy a file up or validate you can see things in the WebUI?

I have around 40GB on my GDrive and on the Teamdrive aroung 400GB and connecting via Browser is no problem.

Here is the result from copying.

It looks like it isn't able to list the directory.

The translation from the last sentence is:

Der angeforderte Name ist g├╝ltig, es wurden jedoch keine Daten des angeforderten Typs gefunden.
The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.

I think i've found the Problem.

It won't work when i set the "shared files" as true. So i guess rclone is havong issues to get the files which were shared with me.

Now it is working

Oh I missed that in your rclone.conf as you are correct.

If you have shared with me on, it only shows files that are shared with you. You'd have to make a separate remote for that I would surmise.

It makes sense that the shared files won't be visible when I set it up as Teamdrive. It is working by now so thanks for your help :slight_smile:
