What's your experience copying data through the mount?

I have a plugin for my server that backs up certain config files by using rsync. It would be kind of a pain to adapt it to use rclone so I am going to try using it as is but set the destination to my rclone mount.

Does anyone have any experience copying files through the mount instead of nativly with the rclone copy command? How does it work? I’ve read the documentation on it and I know it is not as reliable but I wanted to hear from users’ experiences.

It will depend on how reliable the cloud storage system you are using is as copying the files to the mount won’t do retries.

It will be Google. I’ve always done it the “correct” way so I hope it doesn’t need retries. Maybe I can see if rsync will do a retry.
