Mount the remote as a mountpoint. EXPERIMENTAL
rclone mount allows Linux, FreeBSD and macOS to mount any of Rclone’s cloud storage systems as a file system with FUSE.
This is EXPERIMENTAL - use with care.
First set up your remote using
rclone config. Check it works with
rclone ls etc.
Start the mount like this
rclone mount remote:path/to/files /path/to/local/mount &
Stop the mount with
fusermount -u /path/to/local/mount
Or with OS X
umount -u /path/to/local/mount
This can only write files seqentially, it can only seek when reading.
Rclone mount inherits rclone’s directory handling. In rclone’s world directories don’t really exist. This means that empty directories will have a tendency to disappear once they fall out of the directory cache.
The bucket based FSes (eg swift, s3, google compute storage, b2) won’t
work from the root - you will need to specify a bucket, or a path
within the bucket. So
swift: won’t work whereas
Only supported on Linux, FreeBSD and OS X at the moment.
File systems expect things to be 100% reliable, whereas cloud storage systems are a long way from 100% reliable. The rclone sync/copy commands cope with this with lots of retries. However rclone mount can’t use retries in the same way without making local copies of the uploads. This might happen in the future, but for the moment rclone mount won’t do that, so will be less reliable than the rclone command.
rclone mount remote:path /path/to/mountpoint
--allow-non-empty Allow mounting over a non-empty directory. --allow-other Allow access to other users. --allow-root Allow access to root user. --debug-fuse Debug the FUSE internals - needs -v. --default-permissions Makes kernel enforce access control based on the file mode. --dir-cache-time duration Time to cache directory entries for. (default 5m0s) --gid uint32 Override the gid field set by the filesystem. (default 502) --max-read-ahead int The number of bytes that can be prefetched for sequential reads. (default 128k) --no-modtime Don't read the modification time (can speed things up). --no-seek Don't allow seeking in files. --read-only Mount read-only. --uid uint32 Override the uid field set by the filesystem.
