Radarr/Sonarr - Google Drive

Posted May 9th, 2019    2927   3   radarr sonarr Google drive plex

Is there a way to point Radarr or Sonarr to the google drive? I can't seem to find the mount point for google drive. It would make the automation much simpler because it could handle moving completed data off into long term storage.

Official response from a ticket placed with this quesiton:

"The mount is not available inside your seedbox, it is only available to the plex server. It is made that way, dor the exact reason not to be used with any other apps, as this is mostly misused causing extreme load on the servers and quite often bans on google drive api."

I second this question. Not even to have Sonarr place files there but just to know it has files on both Gdrive and the files drive.

It really looses all purpose for Sonarr and Radarr as I do not know which shows or movies or missing or even the tool to rename everything

do what I have done.
Installed Radarr and Sonarr on my local pc, install rclone (with another google ID) and sync my data that way.
the script moves all files downloaded to google drive twice a day (or however you have configured it) so once its moved, and you refresh sonarr/radarr, it will show as downloaded.
I let sabnzbd sort the series and movies out for me. It does a decent job.

Why rclone with 'another google ID'? Won't that connect/mount google drive corresponding to that google ID?
@SainT0071 You're brilliant dude. Whu I didn't think this before.Thanks!

It should be available for Sonarr/Radarr too. It´s not useful to have them without accessing the GD.

We Need full automation other seedboxes do it so why can't you

Answering my own question from my experience.
I tried spinning my own flavor of seedbox, and I found that rclone and automation tools ate a ton of processor. So for a subdivided box I could imagine that being a resource killer.

Also there is a way to sync the files from the seedbox to the gdrive.
Basically what I have eneded up with is a Radarr instance that only handles new movie requests from ombi. It grabs them, renames them, and then they get shipped off to join their friends.

Edited: I just did, but my radarr on local pc just recognize gdrive only, not the encrypted one as path.
