Nextcloud can store your data anywhere you point it to.
I was thinking. What if i have a linux file server, serving CIFS to my PC which is windows. so i use CIFS to connect to my shares on my file server. what if i want this data to be in my nextcloud.
Well i would just mount the CIFS share using NFS on my nextcloud and tell nextcloud thats where my data is.
This would proberly work if i was using the Nextcloud windows client…
but i don’t think it would work if i logged into the web interface. At least with owncloud the webpage only shows the files that in the mysql index. so i would hard copy data into the my nextcloud data folder the data would not show on web because it was not indexed.
so in my example if i copied a file from my PC to my CIFS network share i would not show in nextcloud web interface before the file was somehow indexed.
is this assumption true? and if so any way to fix it?
THANKS for a awesome product!
