I set the location for my data directory on a USB storage limited to 16 Go. I figured that this is not enough because I want to save all pictures from my iPhone.

So, I want to move the data directory to a new USB storage with 128 Go.

How can i change that?

I use Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe this is helpful?
