Rclone filling up my C drive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I am using rclone with winfsp to mount a http server on my pc(windows11) and using it with plex all works fine but every time I open a file my c drive get filled and its almost full now. I went to vfs file on local folder and deleted it but it fills up again now what to do. Is there any way to stop it from filling that much space I found this commend "--vfs-cache-max-age duration" but can get it to work. Sorry I am a Noob

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

rclone v1.57.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro for Workstations 2009 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22543.1000 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.2
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

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

HTTP Server

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

rclone mount remote:patch /path/to/mountpoint --vfs-cache-max-age 10s

shows this error 2022/02/16 14:29:48 Failed to create file system for "remote:patch": didn't find section in config file

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.


A log from the command with the -vv flag


That's tell you the mount never happened since the remote wasn't found.

Try rclone config show and post all your rclone.conf without the secrets/keys/passwords

Try rclone ls remote: and see if that works first.
