Setting up mount on windows 10 64bit

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

im trying to mount my mega folder to be accessible on windows (i have config it as the name mega)

I am lost how to "mount" this so its visable on windows and particularly for radarr and sonarr

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

1.55 latest windows

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

windows 10 64 bit

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


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

This is the command i am trying to work out (i know in linux it would be mkdir /home/hhh/mega then
rclone mount mega: /home/hhh/mega and the flags i need but i am unsure how to get this right on windows 10

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

Start with a simple command, pick one of these:

Mount to next free drive letter:

rclone mount mega: *

Mount to specific unused drive letter:

rclone mount mega: X:

Mount to directory path, where parent must exist:

rclone mount mega: C:\path\parent\mount

Mount to UNC path, which is just another way of doing rclone mount * --volname \\cloud\remote

rclone mount mega: \\cloud\remote

(examples from rclone mount docs)

best to mount to a folder. there are a few reasons for that.

mkdir c:\path\to\mount\
rclone mount mega: C:\path\to\mount\mega

so literally the same as mounting process etc in linux?

well, not exactly.

on linux, each time, must create the mount folder and then rclone mount into that folder.

on windows, the root folder for the rclone mount must exist, so that needs to be done once, never again

after that root folder is created, you can create as many mounts as you want.
rclone mount mega: C:\path\to\mount\mega
rclone mount gdrive: C:\path\to\mount\gdrive
rclone mount remote: C:\path\to\mount\remote

do i need the flags i would normally use in linux as well?

thanks just setting this up because radarr hates me using netdrive3 to mount my mega as network drive.

well, it depends on the exact command.

post your linux command and we can tweak it.

rclone mount mega: /home/hhh/mega --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 10G --allow-other

--allow-other does nothing on windows.

no worries so make it this?

rclone mount mega: /home/hhh/mega --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 1G

and tweak the folders to path to mount

tweak the folders and try the command.

have done that.

so i did the mount command but nothing is showing up in the folder path?

well, i cannot see into your machine.
so add -vv for debug output and post the output.

try to make it look like this, by use three backticks before and after the text

2021/04/24 22:31:11 Fatal error: unknown flag: --vv


screenshot of the folder and cmd window.

sorry, i meant to add this -vv

that looks ok to me

the mount is empty though? no files or folders in there which my cloud (mega) has in there.

i added the -vv flag

c:\rclone>rclone mount mega: C:\hhh\mega\mount --vfs-cache-mode full --vfs-cache-max-size 1G --vv
Error: unknown flag: --vv
rclone mount remote:path /path/to/mountpoint [flags]

the flag for debug outpit is is -vv

and what is the output of rclone lsd mega: -vv
