Plex update new files

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

i have it set up so plex updates the library when it detects new files
this used to work when i had a cache setup
it doesnt work with the default(non cache) mount.
any ideas?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


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

Ubuntu 18

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)

rclone mount drive: /mnt/drive --allow-other --log-level INFO --log-file /opt/rclone/logs/rclone.log --timeout 1h --umask 002 --user-agent rclone --rc

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

For Plex to pick up changes, it does that via inotify on the file system. rclone uses a fuse module that doesn't support it so it does not work on cache or without cache unfortunately.

You can use something like:

As that can monitor your GD or use it via Sonarr/Radarr if you use them.
