Rclone cache - Plex showing as unavailable

Sorry… another question.

I’ve decided to make the jump onto cache and have setup the remotes in the following order:

gdrive - points to the encrypted files
cache - points to the gdrive remote
cachedecrypt - decypts the cache

if I run the rclone lsd command (while the cachedecrypt remote is unmounted) it correctly shows the directories. When I mount the cache it also correctly shows the files and i can write/overwrite to the remote. However plex is showing all files as ‘Unavailable’. Why is this?

My remotes are configured as follows:
type = drive
client_id = redacted
client_secret = redacted
token = redacted

type = cache
remote = gdrive:Plex/
plex_url =
plex_username = username
plex_password = redacted
chunk_size = 10M
info_age = 6h
chunk_total_size = 10G

type = crypt
remote = cache:
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password =

And my mount service:


ExecStart=/usr/bin/rclone mount
cachedecrypt: /mnt/plex
–config /home/dan/.config/rclone/rclone.conf
ExecStop=/usr/bin/fusermount -uz /mnt/plex


Thanks again!


Scrap that… I’d made a mess of the systemd script… after some trial-and-error I’m now able to see and play the files!
