storJ Cloud - Map as a Windows Network Drive

I would like to use the storJ Cloud storage as a mapped drive in Windows, but I don´t get it.

Bucketname: storage

Rclone Version: v1.60.0
WinFSP Version: 1.12.22301
sshfs Version: 3.5.20357

Rclone config entry ist just called "remote".

I can list the files with the following command:
C:\Users\Reini\Desktop\rclone-v1.60.0-windows-amd64\rclone-v1.60.0-windows-amd64>rclone.exe ls remote:
0 storage/Files/.file_placeholder
195791 storage/portfolio_one_ETFs_WELT_AG.png

So the access should work. But if I want to map the "storage" bucket as a network drive I receive always the following error:

C:\Users\Reini\Desktop\rclone-v1.60.0-windows-amd64\rclone-v1.60.0-windows-amd64>rclone.exe mount remote:storage S:
Cannot create WinFsp-FUSE file system: unspecified error.
2022/10/29 23:07:17 ERROR : FS sj://storage: Mount failed
2022/10/29 23:07:17 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: mount stopped before calling Init: mount failed

I can´t find any solutions on the internet for this problem :frowning:

I ve checked the Windows Event Viewer, and there is a message showing up, which says, that WinFSP couldn´t start, beacuse I don´t have enough ressources.
My System:
AMD Ryzen 3900
1TB nvme (660GB free space)

Thank you for your help!

hello and welcome to the forum,

can you post a screen snippet of that?

fwiw, i have run rclone mount in a cheap router with just 128MiB of memory.

can you run this command, and post the full output
rclone.exe mount remote:storage S: -vv
or if you can to use a log file, just change the location to match your system.
rclone.exe mount remote:storage S: --log-level=DEBUG --log-file=c:\path\to\rclone.log

Hi, Thank you for your reply.

Output of the verbose command:

Screenshot of the Message (eventlog) => german :-/

best regards

can you copy and paste the text from event viewer or use google translate.

make sure there is not another rclone mount running in the background.

Hi Terry,

Agree, the eventlog message says: "The service WinFSp wasn't started due to: Not enough system resources to start the service" and your system seems to have plenty of resources (if most of them are free).

I suggest you first make sure you have the latest version of WinFSP installed and then try starting the mount while checking the Performance tab in Task Manager, that may give a clue.

You could also try starting a mount of some local folder to rule out any issues with the StorJ backend (having a relatively high resource usage).


sorry for my late reply, but I ve tested it on my old laptop and it works from the beginning without any issues.
So I removed everything on my main pc and did the same steps as on my old laptop and I get the same errors as before. I have no idea whats wrong and I give up.

Nevertheless thanks for your help
