I am using the latest version of rclone for Windows. I use my own client ID/APY key with Gdrive. I have 1Gbps connection.
I am looking to directly stream my videos from Gdrive with Rclone mount and Plex, without getting banned by Gdrive for too many API calls.
I have a crypted google drive remote and also created a cache remote for it.
This is what it looks like:
type = crypt
remote = gdrive:/Backup/
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = *****
type = cache
remote = gdrive-crypt:/
chunk_size = 10M
info_age = 2d
chunk_total_size = 10G
I use this to mount my Gdrive:
rclone mount gdrive-crypt-cache:/ G: --read-only
Is this good enough for my usage? Or should I use VFS cache options?
Thanks. Makes sense.
I'd still like to use caching though as it's faster in case I need to rewatch something.
What should I do then? Use any VFS cache options?
if you have a setup that is working for you and so far, not hitting any api limits,
then there is a need to change your setup.
in any event, the cache backend is going away.
it is going to be replaced with an updated vfs cache in the beta version of rclone.
I'm in the process of completing the changes to the vfs cache
This will have these 3 major new features (along with a host of bug fixes!)
--vfs-cache-mode full which will only download the parts of the file you need
I envision this will become the preferred way of using the vfs cache
--vfs-cache-mode writes will do delayed writeback of files
this will help with explorer lockups on windows
this will help with downloads and renames in quick sucession (eg downloading from a web browser)
rclone mount gdrive-crypt-cache:/ G: --read-only is just perfect enough for Plex?
One last thing. Say I have a txt file in the crypted remote I open with rclone mount, can I edit it from file explorer? Will it still be encrypted?
that is a fuzzy word.
if there is something not perfect for you with your current setup, what is it?
try it and see what happens.
all files in the mount an encrypted on gdrive but decrypted locally if you access it.
else plex would not be able to work.
I can copy files within file explorer to the mounted encrypted remote. They get encrypted/decrypted automatically as you say.
But cannot edit from within it.
Is there a way to do that?
