I configured rclone to mount gdrive correctly, and I can mount using the command:
rclone mount gdrive: Q:

hello and welcome to the forum,

there is no way to create a permanent mount.
every time you reboot, you would have to re-create the mount.

the easiest way is to create a task using task scheduler.
you can also use nssm, tho it is more complex.

create the task to use the system user.

  • you can have the mount start at bootup, without user logged in
  • all processes will be able to see the mount.

Hi asdffdsa,
thank you so much for your reply.

I solved using nssm, I created a startup services.

Kind Regards
