I'm seeing varying types of cache posts, but not quite what I'm looking for - so I guess it's going to be a feature request unless my google-fu is just broken.
So I have vfs cacheing enabled, and it caches in the ~/.cache/rclone/vfs (linux) for the duration of my max-age parameter.
What I'm essentially looking for (or requesting) is some sort of flag that will keep a directory persistently in that state. So for example:
--persistent-cache = "my-remote:/Documents"
I could keep it cached via vfs it will stay local kind of like those offline/online sync settings the proprietary clients use.
Rclone has been 100% necessary as my work uses Office 365 and I've been able to mount my onedrive/sharepoint directories but there are just several quirks that I feel like would be resolved by implementing this. For example, when opening a csv or xlsx, Libreoffice tries to import blank data and the temp-open state has caused files to become corrupt. I can go in the web and restore but I feel like if I could declare a directory to be cached, my everyday job would be much easier.
