  5. Organizing RClone Encrypted Remote in Windows Explorer

In some circumstances, you might want to have a copy of your RClone folders within Windows. In this guide, we aim to provide you with the steps you need to achieve this.

1. Download and extract rclone.zip for Windows

https://rclone.org/downloads/
https://downloads.rclone.org/v1.51.0/rclone-v1.51.0-windows-amd64.zip

For the simplicity of this guide rclone will be extracted to D:\rclone

2. Download and install winfsp to allow rclone to be mounted in Windows Explorer

winFSP:
http://www.secfs.net/winfsp/rel/

3. On your QuickBox Pro server, download/copy your rclone.conf file located in /home/USERNAME/.config/rclone/rclone.conf and save it on your local machine in C:\Users\USERNAME\.config\rclone\rclone.conf (this will be the default folder rclone will store your .conf in should you choose to do a local setup)

4. With rclone, winsfp and a your rclone.conf file now in place we can mount the encrypted google drive.

5. Start Command Prompt and navigate to your rclone folder

C:\Users\bate>cd /d D:
D:\>cd rclone
D:\rclone>

6. Verify that rclone.conf is readable and remotes are “configured”.
rclone listremotes

rclone listremotes

7. Mount rclone crypt to Z: drive
rclone mount --allow-other --dir-cache-time 1h --drive-chunk-size 64M --vfs-cache-mode writes --vfs-read-chunk-size 32M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off --fast-list gcrypt: Z:

8. In Windows File Explorer a new drive will now appear

9. From here you will see the content of your encrypted remote unencrypted.Β 

Now simply open another window (ctrl+n) and drag n’ drop your folder around. All moving done on your remote is handled as Server side copy

Bonus info: Say you would also want to mount the unencrypted remote simply run

rclone mount --allow-other --dir-cache-time 1h --drive-chunk-size 64M --vfs-cache-mode writes --vfs-read-chunk-size 32M --vfs-read-chunk-size-limit off --fast-list gdrive: X:

And your gdrive remote mounts to X: driveΒ
