Reaching out to see if anyone is experiencing the same issue as me. I have installed v 8.1.3 and running PG Move with no encryption. My situation is when I delete a file form plex, sonarr, or radars, the file comes back in minutes. This is happening because the files are not being deleted on my google drive and getting synced back to these applications. Any thoughts or comments?

if you delete the file / folder from /mnt/unionfs you can*t delete this #

/mnt/uninofs/ is only for read open ..

this is the " n00b-safe-mode "

you can only delete the ffiles from
/mnt/gdrive
/mnt/gcrypt
/mnt/tdrive
/mnt/tcrypt

and lokal

Is this new in version 8, because I could definitely delete files directly from plex and have them appear in the trash folder in google drive.

Is the workaround to add /mnt/gdrive/tv to Plex instead of /mnt/unionfs/tv

Guess that won't work, /mnt/gdrive is greyed on in Plex.

/mnt/unionfs/tv and /mnt/gdrive/tv is the same folder ..

but in /mnt/gdrive/*** is read/wright open

and in

/mnt/unionfs/*** is only read-only open ..

I get that, so how do I delete files directly form Plex, Radarr, or Sonarr?

in version 7 the sync worked both ways, I shouldn't have to delete files in ssh by going to /mnt/gdrive/tv

If this is the case, how does Radarr and Sonarr delete files when a better quality is found? Are you using /mnt/gdrive/tv in Sonarr?

I'll redeploy and see if gdrive is available, but are you linking /mnt/gdrive/tv to Sonarr and /mnt/gdrive/movies to Radarr? Otherwise they would be deleting form unionfs and being synced back.

This is different than version 7, I could link /unionfs/tv to Plex and delete from there.

I am seeing the same issue, in version 7 I had Plex and Radarr pointed to /mnt/unionfs and deletes would end up being pushed back to Google Drive. In version 8, deletes via unionfs do not get pushed back. Is this a change or a bug?

I was able to get this to work by creating a mount manually by going to /opt/appdata/plexguide/rclone config.

Make sure you name the drive gdrive.
