Use rclone mount to mount a fixed disk drive and open the folder slowly

Use rclone mount to mount a fixed disk drive,When a folder is opened, it will trigger the downloading of pictures, resulting in slow opening,please
1、Can I download pictures without triggering, similar to a network drives?
2、Whether webdav can distinguish between downloaded files and open folders, and return thumbnails for open folders?

hello and welcome to the forum,

  1. rclone does not download files, something on your computer is doing that.
  2. what are open folders?

when you posted, there was a template of questions to answered.

I use commands:rclone.exe mount cloud:/ Z: --vfs-cache-mode full --config=C:\xxx\rclone.conf
After the mount is successful, open the Z disk folder (the folder contains a large number of pictures), triggering the picture download, resulting in a slow opening of the folder

rclone does not download files on its own, something else is doing that, perhaps windows explorer.

perhaps try --network-mode
tweak windows explorer behavior, as has been discussed in the forum.

fwiw, i gave up on windows explorer over a decade ago, been using open source double commander.
it runs on windows and linux.

might change the view mode with windows explorer.
