Possible to rename a remote that is not mine but a friends?

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Not actual a problem more if it possible to rename a drive added in my rclone.conf that is not mine? as I need the name to own of my own drive name?

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

rclone v1.61.1
- os/version: ubuntu 21.10 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 5.13.0-52-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.19.4
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

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 config : rename remote

The name of remote doesn't need to be anything.

You can make it whatever you want.

You can just change it.

Thanks, so I can just change the name and it will still work, I don't need to make changes to my rclone mount file to that drive?

If your remote is called "Bob" and you are using rclone mount Bob: /some/spot and you change it to "John", you'd have to change your scripts/mount to be rclone mount John: /some/spot

Is that what you are asking?

Yes. that was it thanks :slight_smile:
