Rclone GDrive share over Samba


I mounted GDrive in Rclone on my Ubuntu server and this mount is shared via Samba. I am using --allow-other option.

On client I can open this Samba share, but there are some problems when I access.


  • write to a file from any software works (example: save text from text editor)
  • copy from server to client works (command line + drag and drop)
  • copy from client to server from command line works ($cp unnamed.png /Volumes/rclone )

Not working:

  • copy from client to server via drag and drop
    Mac: The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50).

After trying I see an empty file with the actual filename on the server, so it is created, but the content is not copied.

  • file delete
$rm /Volumes/rclone/unnamed.png  
rm: /Volumes/rclone/unnamed.png: Operation not supported
