It seems that when the Nextcloud app uploads files automatically to the server, it stores them temporarily in it’s storage. My client has recently tried to upload two 10GB sized Signal backups, but after uploading them it doesn’t seem to flush them from my Nextcloud app, so now I’m stuck with a 20GB sized Nextcloud app I have to clear data from every once in a while.
Sadly enough your post is missing almost all specific technical information. Thanks for your post, but please take a little time to get acquainted with the forum and make a stronger effort to troubleshoot. It is the least you can do when asking others to help you:
Search your question as keywords on this forum. If you find something useful, link it directly into this post.
Sorry, but your tips are not helpful at all, this issue regards the Android app, not server configuration, there aren’t any error messages or missing php modules.
I’m also having the same issue, turning on auto upload causes nextcloud app to consume enormous amounts of device storage even to the point of filling it up completely. The problem seems to be complex in that: 1. Pictures that get uploaded are duplicated to the “on device” section in the app, even though I explicitly chose to keep the uploaded files in their original folders. After each upload I have to manually delete these duplicated files, BUT
2. Even after deleting abovementioned duplicates Android settings still report that nextcloud is taking up multiple gigabytes of device storage (I have no files downloaded through the app) and the only way to remove that phantom data is to delete the app entirely and reinstall it.
I’m using NC 25, self hosted on a debian home server.
just for the good of it: searching the net for existing problems is always a good suggestion (you at least would have found some similar problems on here as well). And if you would dare to take a closer look at all the suggestions made you would easily discover a question for all involved systems. ALL. Meaning: cellie as well.
But yeah, it’s always the easiest thing to first ask and then telling them off if someone only dares to ask for more concrete informations.
