Android app 3.28.0 downloading everything on sync again and again

I use Nextcloud v; it was a short while ago and the same.
I made a test with a ~6GB share. Syncing with client 3.26.0 takes about 15 seconds (on an older tablet with much less power); using client 3.28.0, same share, takes ~17 minutes and re-downloads everything.
This is making sync effectively unusable. The alternative, browsing the entire tree manually, also is quite a bit of work, especially since folders don’t indicate if they are in sync or not. The app is broken like this.


Same for me + after every resync and redownload, it uses the space on my phone again. I sync a folder with 139MB three times, in the datamanager it shows 139MB (on the folder) but on the sd-storage-info it shows 450MB used.
I tryed to uninstall nextcloud-android-app, format the sdcard and retry it, same…
And iam not albe to free the used extra space becaus its not shown anywhere, only formating helpt…
PLS help!

That had me worried, so I checked that. I can’t confirm that in my case. The space usage on the card is consistent with the share size. So it might be a different issue, or an additional one.
Anyways, it’s rather hard to use space without being visible. You might want to check the SD card and (assuming you use Windows for that) switch on hidden and system files in Explorer or use a tool like WizTree. Or a Linux VM.

I tryed that all, checked with windows (hidden files), with linux, with adb-tools, nothing on the sd card but still using the space, even after uninstalling nextcloud and deleting everything i can see on the sd card
I dont think its the sd card itself, because if i put data on it with other ways its ok
I use a Huawei P30 Pro if this info is necessary and i can post screenshots if needed

Is there still no solution to everything re-downloading in sync, android NextCloud V3.28.0

Are there any chances for the issues with the “Sync” from nextcloud feature to be addressed?
I have found two more topics on them here, there are two open issues on github with the same problems. The feature is broken for some people since Android app version 3.28.0, that’s more than two months ago.
I understand that NextCloud team is not my personal tech support and all, but at least some information like “We need more info” or “Shut up we’re already working on it” or “Go away it works on my computer phone” would be much appreciated.
