Question about mounting GDrive

Hey, I was just wondering if it’s safe to mount GDrive without caching if I don’t use Plex. I just want to mount my GDrive to my laptop to watch media, since my laptop only has 256GB and it’s really slow for me if I use cache.

I don’t see why not. I don’t use the cache at all for my plex playback. If you have the latest version, the defaults are sufficient for doing playback.

Wait really? thanks for the answer. :grin:

I just use the vfs chunk read feature that was implemented a few releases back:

 /usr/bin/rclone mount gcrypt: /GD --allow-other --bind --buffer-size 1G --dir-cache-time 72h --drive-chunk-size 32M --fast-list --log-level INFO --log-file /home/felix/logs/rclone.log --umask 002 --vfs-read-chunk-size 128M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off

A few of those items are default now but I just leave them in.
