Installed on 2 pc's.
One pc is plex, one pc has sonarr/radarr on it
When sonarr/radar has finished copying a new file to rclone, Plex cannot see it for a long time however if i stop and restart rclone it sees it straight away. (Don't think transfers 1 is doing anything was there for a trial)
IS there anyway to make RClone check for files live?
I have rclone setup individually with their own GDrive credentials
What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)
Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)
10 Pro x64
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
As animosity says, on a mount any changes on the drive should be caught by the polling interval (1min by default). This is typically fast enough for most uses but it can be changed to a lower value at the cost of some extra API calls.
The other value that affects this is
But this is what cloud-drives that don't support polling rely on (and google drives do support polling), so it should not be necessary to rely on or set lower. If anything you generally want to make this value higher when you can rely on polling because it helps cache to make the drive feel snappier. I think both me and Animosity basically set it to infinitely long for this reason. Polling changes is generally far more efficient than re-listing directories every time you access them.
So just to be sure, both sides use the same configuration as you shared here? It would be the computer that needs to detect the changes (the plex one I guess?) that is the most relevant for this discussion.
I don't know if maybe Plex also has some set interval between checking for changes also. If this is a larger interval it might explain it (and may be configurable). Just because the drive knows of the file doesn't necessarily mean Plex automatically does, not unless you are talking about browsing for the file manually within Plex.
It would help if you can test if you can manually see the file on the mounted drive (not via plex). Wait until your test file completes and then it should be visible to you maximum 1 minute later on the other computers mount. Let's try to reduce the problem down to the most basic by removing Plex from the equation so you can cut the problem size in two and figure out where to focus your troubleshooting.
