My Question and I have the commands working - What is the better option - mount or serve http? I would like to host my site on our regular server and move the images to Google Drive to save server space. I know that nativly serve http doesn't serve images in a https format and i have working out how to get this done. Mount on the other hand seems so much simpler? Any Thoughts?

serve http is probably more efficient. mount will work fine though.

I do a very similar thing with mount to serve beta.rclone.org from an object store. I keep meaning to switch it to serve http but never got round to it!
