Setfacl operation not supported on rclone mount of gdrive

hi there,
i’m using

[~] # rclone -V
rclone v1.42
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.11

to mount gdrive for backup.
i would like to use setfacl to set an acl to let only the owner delete and modify files, and allow the other users to add and read existing files, but when i run the setfacl command i receive an “operation not supported” message.

any idea how can i set this acl?

thanks a lot

rclone mount doesn’t support ACLs or permissions on files. You can set the permissions on the whole mount with

  --umask int                          Override the permission bits set by the filesystem.

This is because most file storage systems don’t have a concept of ACLs or permissions which maps into POSIX-like permissions.

big bummer :frowning:

i already use --umask 002 in mount, but that removes any write right to others, not only delete and append, if there is a umask that allows what i want i don’t know it.

anyway thaks for your work and your time to answer
