Rclone mount a nas drive

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Rclone mount my NAS drive directly to windows. I like how Rclone mounts my google drive so all of my programs see it as a loal disk. I would like thios for my NAS drives also. Currently they are mounted on drive Y and Z.
I need the instructions on how to create a remote more than i need instructions for how to mount

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

rclone v1.57.0

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 2009 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.22000.556 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.17.2
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

Are you on the latest version of rclone?

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

Google Drive

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

I tried setting up a new remote for my NAs and it did not work.
I have other drives mounted with
rclone mount \\mediacenter\data Z:

why not use the windows built-in net use to mount the nas drive.
net use \\mediacenter\data Z:

Is that just regular mapping? Like in windows explorer right clicking and choose map network drive? I did that and the drive is then just seen as a symbolic link type of connection. So some programs see it still as a nas. A good example is google drive sync. I can not backup my nas with it because it sees it as a nas drive still. There are other examples and I have already fixed my original issue of backing it up to google drive, but I would like to be able to mount it with rclone.

sorry, i guess i am not understanding what you need help with.

can you decribe what you want in a single sentence?

you want to copy files from that NAS to gdrive?

I want to map (Mount) my nas using rclone.

The problem with mapping it in windows is that windows simply makes it similiar to a symbolic link.
Rclone makes the drive look like an internal drive.

about that NAS, is it synology, qnap or what?

net use will mount the NAS share as a local drive letter.

net use v: \\vserver03\v$
The command completed successfully.

rclone mount has significant limitations.
imho, would never used it in that way.
but if that is what you want.
