Set up a new remote for google drive, then you should be able to access it as

rclone ls "drive:Computers/bla bla"

what did you try and what happened?

Anyone got it working?

What I got was:
$ rclone ls “GD:Computers”
2018/03/05 14:43:39 ERROR : : error listing: directory not found
2018/03/05 14:43:39 Failed to ls: directory not found

$ rclone lsd “GD:Computers”
2018/03/05 14:44:33 ERROR : : error listing: directory not found
2018/03/05 14:44:33 Failed to lsd: directory not found

If you download the latest beta and look at the instructions here then you should be able to make it work by setting the root ID of the google drive.
