syncthing android cloud folder


I’m trying to sync on android using an encrypted rclone folder (via rcx app) which points to google drive.

Syncthing refuses to let me use a cloud folder, and tells me to only use a local folder.

Is there a way around this please, as I don’t want to keep all the files on my phone?

If not, could this feature please be considered as it would be useful to many.

You can utilise ignore patterns to sync files on demand but the user experience isn’t the greatest, especially on a touch screen device, as you need to modify the patterns by hand.

Alternatively, there is which isn’t maintained anymore but may still work for you.

I also use rclone on my cell. How are you getting rclone to be recognized as a drive in the local File Explorer?

I downloaded an app from the Android store called files and it has the ability to see the rclone cloud drive.

I have both RCX and Round Sync too. It is a fork of rcx that is a bit newer.

It probably works on Windows Linux and Mac with rclone. I haven’t tried that yet but I am curious and having it available on Android would be spectacular.
