Scan entire directory

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

1.How can i make rclone mount scan entire directory (cache) so it not buffering when im searching file next time?im not using plex,just stream directly. please advice to avoid any ban from google
2.Will my cache del if i use same letter with different remote everytime i mount it?
3.This silly question,why command to make rclone never delete cache?i want manually del it

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.


Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Paste command here
```rclone mount --vfs-cache-mode full movie: O: --cache-dir=D:\tmp\rclone --vfs-read-ahead 1G```

#### The rclone config contents with secrets removed.  
<!--  You should use 3 backticks to begin and end your paste to make it readable.   -->

type = drive
client_id = 
client_secret = 
scope = drive
token = {""}
team_drive = 
root_folder_id = 

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here
  1. you want to pre-cache the vfs dir cache, the list of dirnames/filenames in movie:
    --- --rc to the mount command.
    --- after the mountpoint is active, run
    rclone rc vfs/refresh recursive=true -vv
  2. the short answer is no,
    if you change the drive letter, the files in the remote's cache will not be deleted.
    each remote uses its own vfs cache.
    there is no global/shared rclone cache shared between all remotes.
  3. can tweak this flag.
    in my testing, cannot prevent rclone, at some point, from deleting files in the vfs file cache.
    --vfs-cache-max-age duration Max age of objects in the cache (default 1h0m0s)

but it only bound to memory right?there any command exist writing to disk permanently?for dir cache

tl;dr = the answer is no.

to be clear, there are two caches.
each cache has:
a. different purpose
b. different data
c. different storage location
d. different levels of volatility

vfs dir cache
a. to speed the listing of folder/file names from slow cloud based storage.
b. a list of folder/file names and metadata.
c. stored in memory.
d. does NOT survive a reboot.

vfs file cache
a. to store the contents of files read from slow cloud storage. suffice explanation for now.
b. the contents of files.
c. stored in local storage at --cache-dir
d. does survive a reboot.
