I am brand new to Rclone.
I would like to point out that I am French and that I speak English very poorly.
Actually, I use Mountain Duck + cryptomator + plex + windows server 2016 + Google drive currently but I have to change my solution because I often get banned when there are scans of new elements.
I was unaware that there was Rclone on Windows and I am testing this solution and I must say that for the moment I am extremely amazed.
Here are my needs and what I want to do:
- Use Plex with Google Drive.
- Encrypt data on the fly.
- Performance as well as mountain duck in download / upload (15/20 mo / s per upload / download with encryption / decryption)
- Metadata cache to prevent Plex from banning me
- Metadata cache to speed up Plex scans (because on a tidy 30 TB library, it currently takes 1h30 without adding new elements)
- Optimal operation for direct readings in Plex but also readings in "transcoding" (for bad connections)
Here is what I have done so far.
- Creation of a shared folder on Google Drive
- Creation of a "Remote" on Rclone
- Creation of a second "Remote" which encrypts the first
- Installation and use of WINFSP latest version
- Network drive mount via this: rclone mount mydrive: / x: -> Ok
- configuration seen on one of the topics: rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full mydrive:/ x: --fuse-flag --VolumePrefix=\server\share
I would like to tell you that I don't really understand all of these options, but what I want is to be able to access my drive via UNC path.
My second test does indeed make a UNC path and that suits me perfectly because in addition it encrypts the data and the writing speed and about 15-20 mb / s which suits me very well.
I would like to have advice on how to optimize my current configuration (which is quite basic) especially concerning the mounting of my network drive.
I would like someone here to offer me an optimized mount configuration for my needs cited at the start of this topic.
I specify that my SSD is 500 GB, but that I only want allocated 80 GB of maximum cache for Rclone.
What is important is that Rclone always keeps the metadata cache well in memory to avoid Google BANs. (AppData \ Local \ rclone \ vfsMeta)
The entire file cache, are they really useful (AppData \ Local \ rclone \ vfs?) Because if the only objective is to speed up the reading of a few files, it is useless to me.
And I would also like to know if there is something special to be done in rclone.config compared to the base config, if so what can be interesting to do?
Thank you all
