PS: Proton Drive beta testers - I changed the config key name for the mailbox password at the very last minute before the release to make it consistent with rclone's other config keys - so you'll need to rename it in your config.

This also applies to 2FA so you'll need to do 2FA again - sorry!

I think it should just work if you rename the keys in the config file like this

old new
clientUID client_uid
clientAccessToken client_access_token
clientRefreshToken client_refresh_token
clientSaltedKeyPass client_salted_key_pass
mailboxPassword mailbox_password

I was using rclone beta with proton support. It worked fine. I just updated to this version. I tried renaming the config as you mentioned. rclone was giving the error I see below. I went ahead and deleted the protondrive config completely and started over with a new config.

First time trying to use protondrive with the new config, the same way I had previously set it up, gives me the following error on first try.

rclone lsd Proton: --protondrive-2fa=xxxxxx
2023/09/13 08:18:11.119855 ERROR RESTY 401 GET https://mail.proton.me/api/core/v4/users: Invalid access token (Code=401, Status=401), Attempt 1
2023/09/13 08:18:11.334837 ERROR RESTY 422 POST https://mail.proton.me/api/auth/v4/refresh: Invalid refresh token (Code=10013, Status=422), Attempt 1

It hangs at this point. I get the notification from Proton that rclone has logged into my account yet I do not get a directory listing. If I ctrl-c out of it and just do an rclone -ls Proton: it hangs as well.

rclone ls Proton: --log-level DEBUG
2023/09/13 08:24:32 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.64.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "ls" "Proton:" "--log-level" "DEBUG"]

2023/09/13 08:24:35 DEBUG : proton drive root link ID '': Used cached credential to initialize the ProtonDrive API

But it hangs here.

Not sure what has happened there.

The old config should work if you rename things as shown in this commit

Maybe @henrybear327 has an idea?


I got it working again. I deleted the remote again. Used a completely different name for it. Hopefully, it was just a me issue.

i know i'm kind of the only person waiting for this, but the new VFS can't function as a cached remote yet, can it?

Not sure what you mean as I use full mode cache without a problem for some time now. Best to start a new post if you have a new request or probably one that's already on out there.

the caching of a remote locally so it doesn't need to be scanned for each sync. nick has a prototype, so i'm guessing if it were released it would be one of the major points on the release :slight_smile: it used to be doable with the cache remote. but as per your post here, the current cache remote should no longer be used.

@jared alas this is still a prototype. Hopefully one day soon it will make it out the dev incubator :slight_smile:

thanks for stopping by. i'll keep waiting. :crossed_fingers:

Yep, that is correct.

There a few issues that you may want to follow:

Is probably the best I'd imagine if I'm following.

Sorry for the late reply.

No, I don't have an idea either. I can't reproduce this case on my side for some reason. I will try again tomorrow to see if there is anything that I might have missed :slight_smile:


I noticed that after an initial usage of proton drive session refresh keys are generated and stored. I removed the username, password and 2fa code (expired anyway) and everything keeps on working.

I do not know what happens after an expiry time but would it not be best to have an initial connection when creating the config to get the keys and never even store password and 2fa code?

Rgrds A

I think @henrybear327 has plan to remove the username and password from the config file. It is only used at the start to get the token.
