Hello, I recently moved from linux to windows for simplicity. I learned on the forum that I could speed up Windows Explorer which was very slow by default. I would like to know if what I did is optimal or if I can do even more to have an almost perfect reactivity under windows with rclone and google drive. Here is the .bat that starts rclone at windows startup Thanks
C:\rclone\rclone mount Gcrypt: x: --bwlimit 20M:off --network-mode --cache-dir=C:\rclone\cache\Gcrypt --vfs-cache-mode full --user-agent="ams"
timeout /t 20
rclone rc vfs/refresh recursive=true
I don't know your free disk space and therefore set the max cache size to 10GB. The more disk space you can allocate to the cache the better. I don't see a need for rclone rc vfs/refresh recursive=true with this setup and therefore suggest you try disabling that.
The mount command is tuned to give good responsiveness in Windows Explorer. You may get even better performance by using the latest beta. It contains a fix to optimize the cooperation with Windows Defender.
I had such a problem with plex under windows in connection with rclone that I restarted linux, probably a tv series was involved, but plex itself sometimes closed on its own or stopped responding without too know why. Maybe the beta version of rclone would have solved the problem too, but that will be for next time..
I try: rclone mount Gcrypt: /mnt/unionfs --bwlimit=20M:off --allow-other --allow-non-empty --cache-dir=/mnt/Cache/vfs/unionfs --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 200G --vfs-cache-max-age 750h --tpslimit=7 --stats=0 --drive-pacer-min-sleep=10ms --drive-pacer-burst=200 --network-mode --buffer-size=0 --vfs-cache-poll-interval 10m --user-agent="ams" -v
I don't know if --network-mode is useless on linux.
I don't know some have different settings that's why I was asking the question. I often see --tpslimit in docker mounts etc too. So I would use rclone mount Gcrypt: /mnt/unionfs --bwlimit=20M:off --allow-other --allow-non-empty --cache-dir=/mnt/Cache/vfs/unionfs --vfs-cache -mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 200G --vfs-cache-max-age 750h --buffer-size=0 --vfs-cache-poll-interval 10m --user-agent ="ams" -v
So it's just a story of \ after each line
Here's what I put, I'm not sure what it's for:
Those are setting the log file location and the level of the log file.
--log-file string Log everything to this file
--log-format string Comma separated list of log format options (default "date,time")
--log-level string Log level DEBUG|INFO|NOTICE|ERROR (default "NOTICE")
I run a local server only I use so I use remote control to interact with rclone. This allows me to run things like a priming of the directory / file cache with a post command. It's not needed but something I do and allows me to change logging levels while rclone is running should I ever want to. Not requrired.
This is specific for Google Drive as Google had updated their API quota (not upload / download limits) so this allows rclone to use more API as you get 1 billion hits per day.
This means that each file upload or download can only use 32MB/s of bandwidth.
