Question local folder

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I want to use to mount a local folder an crypt it.
I create local and on config show:
type = local

If I do rclone ls localdepruebas:/ list ALL my HDd, I want lo limit it a folder like is was a gdrive example:

type = local

It is possible?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

version 1.53.1

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


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



a local remote cannot be limited to a local path,

if you want to have a local crypt, this is what it would look like

type = crypt
remote = /path/to/local/folder
password = *** ENCRYPTED ***
password2 = *** ENCRYPTED ***

I do it and Works.

Though you can make an alias if you want

type = alias
remote = /path/to/mydir

nice workaround and i can see a real world use for that.

if i am working on a file system, a rclone remote would be relative to the root of the file system.
a simple mistake with a sync command could be a disaster.
same could apply to a cloud remote.
