I’m new here, so first of all: Hi!
My webhoster (Germany, All-inkl) keeps sending me emails about reaching my webspace limit. When I check, it is always the same folder that has become ridiculously huge:
/nextcloud/data/__groupfolders/versions/4/. It is a shared groupfolder that does NOT have large files in it but it is a working directory in which small files get saved very, very often (like several times a minute). So my bet is: there is a huge pile of (unnecessary) file versioning information.
I can manually clean it up with
occ groupfolders:expire and
occ groupfolders:trashbin:cleanup -f 4. But I was wondering if there was a more automated way to do this – or even a way to prevent this from happening at all.
Any recommendations? Greatly appreciated, thanks!
Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5):

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? No, this keeps happening every other week or so
Steps to replicate it:
- Use a groupfolder to often save a small file
- Keep doing 1. until hoster sends warning email
The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:
(this logfile is huge – it seems like I have forgotten to recreate the /tmp folder after an Update. Is this needed?
The output of your config.php file in

Output errors in nextcloud.log in /var/www/ or as admin user in top right menu, filtering for errors. Use a pastebin service if necessary.
Many errors of this kind:

And a few of this type (but not about the directory in question):
