Obsidian .md created date missing when using rclone?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I just installed rclone and syncing from Google Drive. Google drive is mounted using a .desktop file. The main reason for this is to sync Obsidian notes. When using Obsidian and creating a new note, the created metadata is missing. Modified gets updated, though. When testing a vault and creating the notes on the local file system, the metadata is there correctly.

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

➜ rclone version
rclone 1.64.2
- os/version: fedora 39 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 6.6.8-200.fc39.x86_64 (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.21.1
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: none

Are you on the latest version of rclone? You can validate by checking the version listed here: Rclone downloads
--> Yes

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

Google Drive

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

The below command is used in a .desktop file to auto start the mount.

rclone mount --daemon gdrive: /home/thunder/gDrive --vfs-cache-mode full

Please run 'rclone config redacted' and share the full output. If you get command not found, please make sure to update rclone.

➜ rclone config redacted
type = drive
client_id = XXX
client_secret = XXX
scope = drive
token = XXX
team_drive = 

A log from the command that you were trying to run with the -vv flag

No logs for this. I have an image of the file that was created for testing.

welcome to the forum,
please update rclone and test again.

I can't believe it. That resolved the issue. Feels so much faster as well. I thought I was on the latest since running sudo dnf install rclone returned I'm on the latest.

Thanks for the help.

yeah, no worries, the linux repositories are always out of date.
and a lot of work was done recently with metadata support
