Understanding Rclone Mount Download From Remote

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

When I upload a 1KB txt file to Aws S3, it takes around 4-6 mins for the local mount to reflect/ download from remote.
Is this the expected behavior ? Or is there a flag that determine the interval after which the download starts like write-back for upload ?

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

rclone v1.61.1

  • os/version: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 21H2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 10.0.19044.2486 (x86_64)
  • os/type: windows
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.19.4
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: cmount

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

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

--volname="vol" --vfs-cache-mode full --network-mode --file-perms 0777 --dir-perms 0777 --cache-dir c:\rclonelog --log-level INFO --s3-upload-concurrency 8 --s3-chunk-size 16M

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

a file will only be downloaded, if some local apps downloads it and there should not be a delay.
the issus here about keeping the rclone vfs dir cache up to date.
there are two caches that rclone can use, read about it

--dir-cache-time Duration Time to cache directory entries for (default 5m0s)
you can lower that value, but as a result, willl increase the number of api calls to aws.
