I don't know that we've ever tried the union backend... we normally recommend the mount one. I have no idea how union could be used to upload files.

Union Backend is like unionfs and mergefs....we can merge different cloud account to show as single view.....and also after mounting could see the size is showing 16E.

That sounds like it would be incredibly slow. And on writes, I don't know how it would choose which cloud to use.

I don't know how we'd test this for you.

Thanks for the reply.... But when mounted the storage size is showing as 16E for even individual remote. Which is making issue in finding free space.

So no true disk size can be shared via the protocol. rclone is just using the max size it has to show. It used to show 2E in an earlier version. We've seen users who change the code to limit to 1 PB or similar, but this is outside of our use cases.
