I had a severe crash on a RAID5 system what I am trying to recover. But it will take some time and I am l not even sure to get my data back.
I have an nextcloud instance with data area pointing (through a link) on this safe (I thought ) place.
Now I have lost these data on server side, but I have a full set of data on a client that was sync before the crash occur.
So I have all the files I need and lost nothing, but I would like to push them onto the server again.
Database on server side is ok and safe.
I have stopped http on the server side, and stopped nextcoud client SW on the client machine.
Then I created a new place for data with an old server side archive I have.
Then I have started http again and checked nextcloud is happy with that : from the web interface I was able to find old documents.
But I kept client stopped at this stage.
When I start the nextcloud client, it does not detect the files that should be pushed to server as they are missing on the server side.
It is showing all is ok, except that on the server side I can check no new document were pushed by client.
I guess this is because in the database, these files are listed in tables and nextcloud does not detect that files themselves are not there.
Maybe I am asking something trivial, I tried to have a look to backup & restore procedures, but I was not able to figure out how to tackle that.
My question is: Is there a way to force nextcloud client to push all files as it has it, to the server?
Thxs for your help,
