Trying to mount on my pc

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

trying to mount my rclone for Plex streaming

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

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


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

rclone mount remote ftp F: --allow-other --timeout=1h --poll-interval=15s --dir-cache-time=1000h --cache-dir= "C:\Users\nammm\Desktop\ftp" "C:\Users\nammm\Desktop\ftp\cache" --vfs-cache-mode=full --vfs-cache-max-size=150G --vfs-cache-max-age=12h

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Command mount needs 2 arguments maximum: you provided 4 non flag arguments: ["remote:ftp" "F:" "C:\\Users\\nammm\\Desktop\\ftp" "C:\\Users\\nammm\\Desktop\\ftp\\cache"]


  • need to change remote ftp to the name of the remote from the config file.
  • --allow-other does nothing on windows, so remove that
  • --poll-interval does nothing with ftp, so remove that.
  • and this not correct --cache-dir= "C:\Users\nammm\Desktop\ftp" "C:\Users\nammm\Desktop\ftp\cache"
    for the vfs file cache, pick a single dir.

and next time, post the debug output, by adding -vv to the command.

This is the ultimate cause of the error message. You can't have a space after the = sign... so



--cache-dir C:\Users\nammm\Desktop\ftp\cache

I've dropped the other directory
