Let's look at a schematic


We see that two different folders are merged into one folder, and the file folders with the same name are also merged together, and the unique ones are displayed separately

  • Example 1 riluo.jpg is unique to local 1, shown above

  • Example 2 Two folders have a video folder, but the content inside will also be merged, and the subfolders also apply to the display rules of merging with the same name

    • There are two videos in each of the two folders, but one of them has the same name. Finally, according to the display rules of merging with the same name, it becomes 3 files for display after merging

What are alias? alias is a function for path merging

Except download preview (read-only) operations ^(copy, delete, rename, offline download, upload)^ are not allowed

For example: cloud disk account 1 and cloud disk account 2 both have the folder Movies, but the contents may not (all) overlap

Previously (virtual path): can only be mounted to two different paths (cloud disk 1/movie, cloud disk 2/movie) or (movie\cloud disk 1, movie\cloud disk 2 ) Now(alias): Provide an aggregated folder (movie) which can contain the contents of cloud disk 1 and cloud disk 2 at the same time

The folder content rules when displaying are as follows

  1. Merge with the same name: the same files (folders) are automatically merged into one
  2. Priority of the same name: When accessing resources, the path file (folder) at the top (front) when filling in the path for each fixed access
    • If the files with the same name are merged, click to play, and when downloading, it will be called first. When filling in Paths, the file with the 302 mode path will be used first.

Let me explain same name first² access rules

How to fill in

There are two ways to fill in

  1. The first one is that you can only fill in the path of the subfolder and the folder with the same name must be used at the end. It is not recommended to use ❌

    -Paths filling example:

  2. The second is to directly mount the root folder path, using the renaming method, it is strongly recommended to use ✔️

    -Paths filling example:

    #Example 1 Directly write the root folder
    merge: /file1
    merge: /file2
    #Example 2 Mount different path folders for merging
    merge: /file1/localtest233
    merge: /file2/videos/TV series
    merge: /file3 2/TV/Domestic TV Series/Station XX

According to the second method, we can merge and display different folders, which is convenient and quick

Example 1. Fill in the access according to the following path(302 mode has priority)

local: /localtest/local1
local: /localtest/local2
local: /localtest/local3
local: /localtest/local4
  • 1, if there is a video 1 2 3 4, each visit is 1

    • If 1 3 4 uses the local proxy and 2 uses 302, call 2 first
  • 2, a video 3 4 yes then every visit is 3

    • If 3 uses a local proxy and 4 uses 302, call 4 first

The download method to use

​ When adding alias, Web Proxy and Webdav Policy are not modified by default. The storage path filled in the Paths path can be 302, Local Proxy, Download Proxy URL, three modes Mixed Playback Mixed Playback is possible

​ If you checked Web Proxy, the storage filled in by the Paths path, if there is a 302 mode playback, it will be played in transit (local proxy mode) at that time, and it will become a proxy mode. If the Webdav policy is also changed, it will also change

​ Of course, it is up to you to choose whether to change the mode

What if you don’t know how the cloud disks you added are different?

  1. You can go to the bottom of the corresponding document to view the document, there is a flow chart description

    • If there is a 302, the 302 method is used by default. If there are only local proxy and download proxy URLs, the default is to use the local proxy, provided that you have not manually selected
  2. You can check when adding storage, select the corresponding storage to view, for example, let’s check the methods of Alibaba Cloud and 115 respectively

    • As you can see from the figure below, Alibaba Cloud Disk has the option of web proxy, and webdav policy defaults to 302. It can be judged that Alibaba Cloud Disk uses the 302 method by default

    • As you can see from the figure below, the 115 network disk does not have the option of web proxy, and the webdav strategy defaults to the local proxy. It can be judged that the 115 network disk uses the local proxy mode by default

    • alias

other instructions

If you are using Windows, the following situation will occur, and folders with different capitalization will also be regenerated For example, Local 1 and Local 2 have a lowercase v for video respectively, and the folder OneDrive has an uppercase V Video folder Then a lowercase video folder will be generated, which contains only local 1, local 2 files merged by two folders At the same time, the uppercase Video will gather the files of the three folders

This is because Windows is case-insensitive, video and Video will be considered as the same folder, you will not have this problem if you switch to Linux or Mac

Aliases are not supported for load balancing for the time being (if it is supported later, the document will be modified here, if it is not modified, it is not yet supported)
