I’m struggling to the get the grip of the file/folder flow utilising rclone cache in my media server. I have some basic questions just to understand the fundamentals of the flow:
- I’ve mounted a unencrypted rclone cache remote (gcache) to /media/. Gcache is pointing to my google drive mount (gdrive). In the /media folder I can see my movies and tv folders as expected.
- I’ve setup Plex library to look in the /media mount. Works as expected.
Now the big questions. What do I do with radarr/sonarr? Can they do file/folder renaming and moves directly to the cached /media mount? Or do I have to use the unionfs local/cloud trick still? Cache mounts are RW right?
- If I make a script that moves local files from /media to gdrive every once in a while, will rclone manage to differ between a cached entry and a local file?
Sorry for my stupidness. It’s really hard to find good information regarding rclone cache as it’s still quite new. And I’m the kind of guy that needs guides to learn
