Rclone create multiple folder in windows 2019

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Powershell.exe -WindowStyle Hidden -Command "rclone mount aws_s3:XXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXX d:\S3Backup --vfs-cache-mode full --allow-other"

Our AWS team already created a S3 bucket and have mount it successfully
However when we go into D:\S3Backup and try to create a new folder, it automatically create 4 folders instead of one. Other normal drive C:\ D:\ location is working fine. Only the S3 bucket which are mounted with rclone.

Please advise.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

C:\Users\a5115049>rclone --version
