For a long time, I have wanted to have access to all my encrypted files in Google Drive on iOS. Currently I upload them with Crypt which works great, but rclone being unavailable on iOS, I can't have access to my files this way (I do have a secondary Android phone, but since I prefer iOS I want them accessible on that platform).
So after googling for a long time I came across Cryptomator. It allows me to create encrypted "vaults". locally and mount them as drives. They also have an iOS app.
So I thought of mountaing Google Drive with rclone, creating a Cryptomator vault in the mounted drive, and then use rclone to copy the files from my hard drive into the Cryptomator vault.
Unfortunately this is not working well because of how unreliable Google Drive is (bear with me - I know I could get a different service like B2 or even Wasabi, but the monthly cost for 8TB is way out of budget right now, not to mention the Cryptomator iOS app only supports Dropbox, Drive and OneDrive).
The biggest problem seems to be that the mount disconnects when under "heavy" load. Rclone starts printing errors in the lines of "Device not configured".
I have created a Cache remote to wrap around my standard, non-encrypted drive, and I mount it like this:
rclone mount aibanezkautschme_Cache: gdrive2 --vfs-cache-mode full
So I have two questions: Has anyone here had any success using rclone and Cryptomator this way? Basically using rclone to mount Drive, and then create the Cryptomator vault in the Drive mount. And two, are there any other parameters I'd could try to improve the reliability of the rclone mount when using Drive? I'm aware Drive has been having issues since yesterday, but I'm not in an affected zone (none of my normal rcone sync logs show excess of 4xx errors).
