rclone setup

Install rclone plugin

Unraid => Apps => search for rclone and install the one with Waseh's Repository in it

Setup UI

create password file output => https://hostingcanada.org/htpasswd-generator/

From unraid terminal: echo "htpasswdOutput" > /boot/config/plugins/rclone/.htpasswd

Unraid => Settings => User Scripts => Add New Script name it rclone_gui

Click cog icon next to rclone_gui => Edit Script

Copy the contents of rclone_gui.sh to the text box.

Change Schedule Disabled to At First Array Start Only Click Apply at bottom of User Scripts page. This will make it start automatically after every reboot.

To manually start it now click Run In Background. Now the UI is started on http://unraidIP:7559

Setup remote configs

Open the UI http://unraidIP:7559 and login

Under Configs create two configurations:

  1. Provider type is local
  2. Provider type is Google Drive (detailed directions at https://rclone.org/drive/#making-your-own-client-id)

Setup Log Folder

In Krusader create a new folder at /media/appdata/rclone-logs

Setup gdrive sync (GDrive => Unraid backups share)

Unraid => Settings => User Scripts => Add New Script name it rclone_gdrive_backup

Click cog icon next to rclone_gdrive_backup => Edit Script

Copy the contents of rclone_gdrive_sync.sh to the text box and save

  • Make sure you replace gdriveConfigName with the name of the drive config you made earlier
  • Modify the backup location (/mnt/user/backups/gdrive) if you want it to backup somewhere else

Choose the schedule you want to run the script on, hourly is a good start.

Setup nextbutt sync (Local Nextbutt share => Unraid backups share)

Unraid => Settings => User Scripts => Add New Script name it rclone_nextbutt_backup

Click cog icon next to rclone_nextbutt_backup => Edit Script
