Deleted folders under admin on new install, but still showing under other users

We have just setup NextCloud, and under the admin user, we have disbaled the features we do not need, and so far all worked ok.

Have setup a test user as well, gone in as admin and setup a Test folder, and removed other un-needed folders so everything is tidy.

Have logged in as the test user, and all the folders and files I removed are showing for this test user, but not the admin? Is this a bug or a design feature of what new users see when they first login?

All help greatly appreciated


By default the default directories are user specific, except you’ve created group folders. Therefore it is absolutely normal that some default folders are seen by each user. Please read the related chapter in the administrator guide.
