Unable to open file in drive shared with me

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Hi Guys!

I have shared a drive with a user and am trying to mount it with the --drive-shared-with-me flag. I can read the file/folder structure and read small text files. I cannot, however, read larger files (e.g., video files). I When I mount the GDrive with the owner credentials I can read video files without issues.

Is this a policy issue (i.e.m Google blocking me from doing this?), or a user error?

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

rclone v1.55.1

  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.16.3
  • go/linking: dynamic
  • go/tags: cmount

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)

C:\Users\Vasco D'Orey\Desktop>rclone.exe mount --drive-shared-with-me --log-file logmimis.log --log-level DEBUG mimispersonal: mimis

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

The log file shows you are reading the file fine. What error are you seeing?

The file wasn't playing. I tried to use a different player (VLC in this case) and it's now working. Sorry to waste your time.
