Anyone try to do it ?

rclone mount Dropbox: /dane/Dropbox/ --vfs-cache-mode=writes allow-other


samba share config

[Dropbox] path = /dane/Dropbox browseable = yes read only = no writeable = yes valid users = user force group =grupname directory mask = 777

Hello!

You can make 'samba share' from any already mounted directory.

but not allowing to create and delete files / folders
Who is the owner of the files inside the /dane/Dropbox/?
Try to setup 'force user' equal the owner's name.
force user = dane

force user = dane
The owner of the files and directory is root.
Rclone takes and set directory permission from root.

As you can see above samba share is set with force group ( group from ad dc) but it's not working.

I think it's not possible to set the rclone folder for everyone with full permission.

In your case, the 'grupname' have to be a group for your files and directories, with write permission.

Just try to setup 'force user = root' for testing purposes.
smb.conf(5)
Code:
Once connected, all file operations will be performed as the "forced user", no matter what username the client connected as. This can be very useful.

Use the 'owner' instead of 'everyone with full permission'.
Another idea is a try to mount 'Dropbox' with non-root owner.
Code:
--uid uint32  Override the uid field set by the filesystem. (default 1000)
--gid uint32  Override the gid field set by the filesystem. (default 1000)
Set the owner as a regular FreeBSD user like 'dropbox', and try to use this user for samba 'force user = dropbox'.
