Rclone downloads useless things

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

rclone downloads things i don't want it to download.
Like it downloaded over 24gb of Gotham even tho I watched something else the whole time. And it isn't just Gotham.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

windows 10 64bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

google team drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

cd C:\rclone1

rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full -vv --vfs-cache-max-age 2h0m0s --vfs-read-chunk-size 100M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 0 --buffer-size 2G gdrive:/ G:

How are you playing the content? Plex/Emby/Jellyfin read the file while performing scans, so rclone will download content as requested.

--vfs-read-chunk-size 100M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit 0 --buffer-size 2G

These settings are very wasteful for such scans, so please remove them and just use the defaults.

I use Emby. Ok I will try without those settings

It's worth to note rclone downloads nothing unless the OS requests it.

It's most likely however you have Plex / Emby setup.

This shows even more. It says failed to upload and smth

hi, i use emby,
there are a lot of settings that cause emby to download large chunks of files, possible the entire file.
thumbnails, previews, subtitles and so on,
emby does run such tasks on a schedule like transcoding, converting, etc..
the first thing i do when i install emby is to disable all of the above.

And how exactly do I disable those?

It doesn't download useless files now and that's great. Thanks
