RClone - Encrypted

Warning: If you very new to all this, I recommend going the unencrypted route. This setup can be a little complicated and requires some understanding of linux. Using unencrypted allows you to use PlexCloud (a ok backup) and just remember that this is business grade. Google will care only if you make them care (i.e.: like hey; here is my drive open and sharing links to all your buddies). @Admin9705 (myself) uses the unencrypted method!

Youtube Video (Instructions Below)


Instructions

Part 1 of 3
Pay attention, instruction may slightly change due to Versioning
Instruction are for Version 1.39
  • N < For New remote
  • gdrive < for the name
  • 10 < For Google Drive,
    • Double Check the Number Selected, just in case
    • Do NOT pick 9 - Google Cloud Storage!
  • Enter Your Google ID
  • Enter Your Google Secret
  • Just press enter when you are asked about Service Account File (or don't, if you know what you are doing...)
  • N < for headless machine
    • NOTE: If on a VM or the actual machine with an interface (GUI), select Y.
  • Enter Your Verification Code
  • [Json Question] if you see this, leave it blank and press enter!
  • N < Configure this as a team drive?
  • Y < If asking all is ok?
Part 2 of 3

  • This encrypted mount will be used for the move-en.sh to upload stuff to your Google Drive
  • N < For New remote
  • gcrypt < for the name
  • 7 < For Encrypt/Decrypt (double check the number select in case)
  • gdrive:/encrypt (encrypt being the name of the rclone encrypted folder within your gdrive)
  • 2 < Encrypt standard
  • 1 < Turn on Directory Encryption
  • Y < type your own password (make up a secure one and write it down somewhere safe otherwise use the one from before if you already created it for whichever original encrypted folder you want to use)
  • Y < type your own salt password (make up a different secure one and write it down somewhere safe otherwise use the one from before if you already created it for whichever original encrypted folder you want to use)
  • Should see something like this:
Bash:
[gcrypt]
remote = gdrive:/encrypt
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = *** ENCRYPTED ***
password2 = *** ENCRYPTED ***
  • Y < If asking all is ok?
Part 3 of 3

  • This encrypted mount will be for unionfs-encrypt.service to avoid bans as it will use plexdrive
  • N < For New remote
  • crypt < for the name
  • 7 < For Encrypt/Decrypt (double check the number select incase)
  • /mnt/plexdrive/encrypt (encrypt being the name of the rclone encrypted folder within your gdrive)
  • 2 < Encrypt standard
  • 1 < Turn on Directory Encryption
  • Y < type your own password (use the same password as above for gcrypt)
  • Y < type your own salt password (use the same SALT password as above for gcrypt)
  • Should see something like this:
Bash:
[crypt]
remote = /mnt/plexdrive/encrypt
filename_encryption = standard
directory_name_encryption = true
password = *** ENCRYPTED ***
password2 = *** ENCRYPTED ***
  • Y < If asking all is ok?
  • Q < to quit
*********** It is recommended that you restart after this

For those that are curious:-

  • /mnt/gdrive = Direct link to your Google Drive
  • /mnt/.gcrypt = Direct link to your Encrypted folder on Google Drive
  • /mnt/plexdrive = Mount to your Google Drive but with Plexdrive to avoid bans (for use by apps like Plex ) - This is Read-Only
  • /mnt/encrypt = The Encrypted mount of Plexdrive (/mnt/plexdrive/encrypt) - This is Read-Only
  • /mnt/move = This is the folder that will get it's contents uploaded to your Google Drive (apps like Sonarr & Radarr will place their completed files here)
  • /mnt/unionfs = This is a combination of /mnt/move & /mnt/plexdrive or /mnt/encrypt (most apps like Plex, Sonarr & Radarr should point to this location)
