How do I mount rclone in the background to my google drive without having to keep putty open?

i assume from the use of putty that the computer running rclone mount is not windows.
as per the documentation.
"On Linux and OSX, you can either run mount in foreground mode or background (daemon) mode. Mount runs in foreground mode by default, use the --daemon flag to specify background mode."

if using windows, then there are a bunch of ways to run a process in the background.
nssm, psexec, nircmd and what i use task scheduler,

if you want to run rclone mount at boot time, on linux you can use systemd or cron
i can share a good weblink for that.
