Dear Nextcloud experts,
On my Linux computers, I have a folder with a lot of PDF files in subfolders and set up a folder sync with the desktop client. The synchronization stops at some point with a “connection closed” and “operation canceled” error message. It seems to be stopping at a file with a particularly long file name. Therefore my guess is, that there is some kind of limitation to the file name, or absolute path including the file name.
The file system I am using on the clients and on the server is EXT4 and I am not having any issues using those files on the command line, the file manager, or any software I have been using them with so far. For instance, one of the problematic files has a file name of 244 characters, together with a path of 24 characters.
If I rename the files listed in the error message, the synchronization is successful. Of course, this would be a solution to the problem, but I am interested, why there is this limitation and if there is a way to keep the original file names. The full name helps me find the articles I need at a later point.
Thank you very much for your help!
