Run .exe files with rclone mounted drives

How to run .exe files from my mounted rclone onedrive business drives. Please help.

Command used

rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full Games: G:

Hi! If you're on Windows try adding --file-perms=0777 to your mount command — that's what worked for me.

For example: rclone mount Games: G: --vfs-cache-mode full --file-perms=0777

There's more info on file permissions here in the docs.

Hi chiragnahata,

Here is a bonus tip that may improve your experience:

rclone mount Games: G: --file-perms=0777 --vfs-cache-mode=full --vfs-cache-max-age=168h --vfs-cache-max-size=10G --network-mode --buffer-size=0

It will hopefully make the start of games played the past week at lot quicker, and improve your experience in Windows Explorer. You can adjust the max cache size as it best fits to your free space and usage pattern, the more the better.

Please let me know if it has a positive or negative effect.
