pCloud Client Crypto Drive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I have an existing pCloud Encrypted drive with their Client SW. I documented my Password and their initial Salt. Can I enter the PW and SALT into rclone and use my existing Entrypted Folder

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

$ rclone version
rclone v1.56.2

  • os/version: darwin 11.6 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 20.6.0 (x86_64)
  • os/type: darwin
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.8
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

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


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

rclone lsd secret:

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Gregs-MBP:~ Greg$ rclone config dump
    "pCloud": {
        "hostname": "api.pcloud.com",
        "token": "{\"access_token\":\"HLNF………9rBdk\",\"token_type\":\"bearer\",\"expiry\":\"0001-01-01T00:00:00Z\"}",
        "type": "pcloud"

        "directory_name_encryption": "false",
        "filename_encryption": "off",
        "password": "FTrI9fP2p……………qkwrNm",
        "password2": "mLHV2s6ofk…………D064",
        "remote": "pCloud:Crypto Folder",
        "type": "crypt"

hello and welcome to the forum,

rclone does not support that pcloud client crypt drive.

if you have that pcloud crypt drive mounted as local storage, then rclone can access the decrypted files, same as any other application.

i would not use secret:, will lead of corruption of data in pCloud:Crypto Folder
