The issue you are facing:
I have installed Nextcloud AIO on a server with 4TB RAID1 configuration. the disk shows 2% full but when I try to drop a folder from my windows desktop into the group folder it says insufficient space

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

Steps to replicate it:
Drop a folder structure with 13 folders of 16.2GB with 973 photographs and videos in it.



I have dropped folder 2022 in successfully but folder 2021 will not go

Link to support extract

I have copied in a load of smaller files and the free space has reduced accordingly but still nothing seems to be full.

Can anyone help find out where it is?

I can supply any additional diagnostics but am not a Docker expert so I will need explicit instructions on how to do it.(I can open the console on the containers)

Same problem as this

The C: Drive was full on the source computer.
