Rclone cache help needed, and other beginner questions

Yes, read up on that link there as it explains it.

ok thx, will look into that.

btw, I have another API question.
I have some other gdrive accounts which have unlimited team drive acces, by a shared google team drive.

How can I use/enable drive API for these accounts.. ?

I've read here on the rclone site ( https://rclone.org/drive/) , that the google drive API, does not have to be on the same google account.. ?
If this is correct, then I can just use any google account, and link rclone to that created drive API key.. ?
Or how does this work.. ?

I think I will need to create a seperate API key for each connection.. ?
And if I am correct the used google account does not matter at all.. ?

alright, so I have created an drive API, and seems to work fine :wink:
it's rock sollid, I have never expected it to be this stable.
other tools like netdrive and Mountain Duck are not even getting close.
And are all closed source, and commerical products..

Anyway it seems like my thought I was right, and so does the manual over here on rclone.
I dont need a special google account, just any google account works for creating and using the google drive API :slight_smile:
Anyway, I have been using rclone crypt with cache now for a few weeks, and it has been working great :wink:

Still I startup rclone browser, to mount the crypt folder.
I would love to find a way to enable auto mount on startup on MacOS, but have not been able to do so.
Perhaps somebody here can help me with that.. ?

Another thing I am still looking for is a way, to auto copy using rclone browser.
For example, I would like to add something like polling time, to always move files into my crypted gdrive.
Like auto move and check every 5 or 10 min., and then it auto moves new files into my gdrive crypt.
I have tried adding some commands using rclone browser in a task like :
--run-interval 10m and or --poll-interval 1m
but they dont seem to work so far, I hope somebody can help me out with that.. ?

Been using the following configuration now :
type = drive
scope = drive
token = {"access_token":"","expiry":"2020-01-16T13:12:48.28925+01:00"}
team_drive =
client_id =
client_secret =

type = crypt
remote = gdrive-cache]:confused:
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password =
password2 =

type = cache
remote = gdrive:/
plex_url = http://localhost:32400/
plex_username =
plex_password =
chunk_size = 16M
info_age = 2d
chunk_total_size = 50G
db_path = /Volumes/Muziek en Cache HDD/Rclone cache/
chunk_path = /Volumes/Muziek en Cache HDD/Rclone cache/
db_purge = true
plex_token =

Anyone has some answers for me.. ?

you can create a simple batch script

  1. rclone move
  2. sleep for 5 minutes
  3. loop to step 1.
