rclone

I’ve been looking for a server solution, and I think I just found one.

On the Linux Server I run

curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash

Enter my password so this can be installed as root.

Now I ran

rclone config

There was a lot to work through so this is what I did and what I wanted.

  • I have an unlimited account.
  • I created a Team Drive to receive these backups.
  • I configured my own certificates to create a secure connection between this server and my Google Drive Team Folder.
  • In my user fold on the server I created a Directory called googledrive.
  • I then ran this command to connect my defined Google Drive Team Folder in the cloud with my user folder of googledrive.
rclone config show
rclone mount theconfigname: /home/auser/googledrive/ &
the & completes and returns
df
theconfigname: 1099511627776 0 1099511627776 0% /home/auser/googledrive

Now that is a lot of available storage.
But then from this server I am backing up over 1T of data. And how to do that?

Issues

I seem to be able to get rclone operating flawlessly when I am backing up to a Google Team Drive. But to My Drive is still causing me a lot of issues.

Mounting Issues

I had an issue with mounting a Google Drive, it was fixed by doing the following after the error below.

rclone mount source /root/destination
2020/07/28 13:11:27 Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: fusermount: exec: "fusermount": executable file not found in $PATH
FIX
yum install sshfs

Bad Unmount

??????????? ? ? ? ? ? googledrive
umount -i /root/googledrive
