Has anyone successfully used Google File Stream for the files and then rclone mount off what is visible in Google File Stream?
Previously, I have used rclone to upload encrypted data to my Google Drive. With GDrive file stream, I can now see that folder as another drive on my Mac, but obviously the contents are encrypted.
Is there a way to point rclone to this new drive+folder and say, “Decrypt this, please, so that I may see the real contents and stream them in real time?”
It’s really weird, I can use rclone mount for a normal google drive, and rclone mount for a crypt on google drive. For either of those options, the mount is successful and I can see the files in Finder.
But when I try to rclone mount a crypt on google drive using file stream, I get nothing. I tried using a symlink to /Volumes/GoogleDrive/My\ Drive/Encrypted/ (literally just typing rclone mount googlecrypt: /Users/ABC/rclonecryptmount ), it mounts but I don’t see anything at all in Finder. But I DO see the files in terminal. Very odd and I’m having a hard time trying to trouble shoot it.
Would love to hear your experience if you managed to use rclone mount from a crypt on File Stream?
WHY am I trying to do this? Why file stream instead of rclone mount directly? rclone mount is definitely slower than file stream since file stream has all the caching going on. So rclone can then use those cached results from file stream and at least show me the decrypted file names. I prefer to use file stream and then have rclone mount from file stream.
