External local storage files showing to all users

Support intro

Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn’t supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 22.2.5
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Operating System: Linux 5.15.21-v8+ aarch64 Raspberry pi 4 8gb with nextcloudpi
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): replace me
PHP version (eg, 7.4): 8.0.15

The issue you are facing:
Install local usb storage to the usb of the Raspbery pi and when the storage it loaded into the external storage app it shows the files to all users when uploaded instead of separating each user to share the storage.

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

Steps to replicate it:

  1. usb to storage and install location into external storage
  2. open 2 different users and upload 1 file into the storage
  3. go to second user and see if the file shows that user 1 uploaded

There are actually two types of external storage: mounted in the admin’s settings, or mounted by an individual user. It sounds like you may have used the admin’s settings.

Thank you
Yes I have it setup in admin so all users can use the storage. Is there a way 2 separate them though so each user only sees there files that are uploaded to it?

I don’t think so within the same external storage mount point. Instead you might try mounting a subfolder per user.
