The issue you are facing:

I have the same issue as 413 Request Entity to Large on Desktop Client Sync

I am unable to sync larger files on my desktop nextcloud client, returning a 413 error

I can’t find the files mentioned in that thread to edit to allow larger files to be stored on Nextcloud

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (N):

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Copy/move/create a large file in the Nexcloud directory
  2. Wait for desktop client to attempt to sync

Please can you let me know what files I need to edit to allow large files?

Anyone got any ideas?

Still having this issue!

Does this forum work?

The forum technically works.
But community support is just a fancy way of saying not really any support.

You may find some hints here https://help.nextcloud.com/t/files-not-getting-synced-413-request-entity-too-large/45681
I am having the same error for any file, so changing the file sizes did nothing.
