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, 12.0.2): 13
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 17.04): Raspbian
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (eg, 7.1):

The issue you are facing:

Nextcloud 13 is running fine and as expected on my Raspberry Pi3. However, I’ve got a friend trying to upload 74GB of video and photos to it (over 300 files), in the web interface, and we can’t see a way of confirming that the upload was complete. During the first upload attempt his cat managed to press F5, so he started it again from scratch because we couldn’t find a way to only copy the files that hadn’t already been done.

To summarise:

How do you know an upload completed successfully?

When uploading lots of files, is there an option to only upload ones not already on the nextcloud?

If upload is interrupted during a file’s upload, does a non complete version stay on nextcloud? And when that file’s upload is attempted again, will it ask you if you want to keep the already existing file (the corrupt one).

Basically, if I want to backup some data, how can I confirm it was backed up?

Nextcloud version: 14

I too am experiencing this issue and created an account with NextCloud community just so I could post this response. When creating a public upload folder, the web interface is lacking in a way of confirming an upload has completed. The current way leaves those that are uploading questioning if the upload has completed successfully and results in them trying to contact the owner of the public upload folder if the upload has succeeded. If this feature could be flushed out a bit, it would be greatly appreciated!

Something like in this app?

That app does at least tell you it uploaded the file correctly, which is a start, although you can only upload into the root directory with it.

Should the connection be interrupted though, I’ve got no idea what happens regarding resuming the upload or starting again and the client working out what files are already there and as such don’t need uploading again.

I experienced something worse and need occ to fix.

BTW, in NC 14, on user’s file tab, when user presses the [+] button to upload file, there is a status bar.
