Ah okay, so instead of downloading to my own PC and encrypting there I can download to GCP and encrypt there and then reupload to my gdrive from there.
This is probably going to be much faster to do the encryption on googles hardware (my desktop here at work is not verey powerful), but my connection is pretty decent 100 mbits / 50 mbits - but still probably quicker to transfer all internally in googles infrastructure… I will play around with this to see if I can get it to work. Can you point me to the right location inside google where I would setup such an instance? Thanks!
After I’ve cleared my gdrive of media then, I should reupload it through the encrypted rclone remote, correct?
On the download side, I just mount plexdrive to the same folder as the decrypted rclone, correct?
Well I’d do it on the fly. You’d set up a new remote and just rclone sync oldremote: newremote:
This will temporarily use twice the storage. Or you could rclone move oldremote: newremote: if you don’t want to use twice the storage. (I’d do the copy and then run rclone check oldremote: newremote: but I’m paranoid about data loss!)
Thanks for the tip. I have it all backed up on 2 separate HDDs already (also paranoid here :)) so i can be a bit reckless with this gdrive data haha.
So would you recommend doing the following as well:
create a new encrypted Gdrive remote [GdriveEnc]
run “rclone move Gdrive:/plex GdriveEnc:/plex/enc” ?
This will create an encrypted copy of everything in /plex/enc on my gdrive, right? This downloads eveyrthing onto my VPS, correct? I only have about 40gb sotrage available. Can I force it to do just like 10-20gb at a time and then delete that to move on to the next set of movies?
delete my orginal, unencrypted media in Gdrive:/plex/movies and Gdrive:/plex/tv
remount my plexdrive to GdriveEnc:/ (?)
Where does my gdrive cache rclone remote fit into all of this? Is the rclone cache remote even worth it? Should I maybe just delete it in the interest of simplicity?
