Hey all, I am a newcomer here and first time user of NextCloud.
I have sync’d all my important local files to the cloud (80gb), and now intend on formatting my HDD the next day, potentially exchanging it for a SDD completely.
After reading about 20+ threads here to get a better idea of how things work, I saw that I should not locally “untick” the sync box on a folder, since it would actually delete the files completely, at least that is my take-away from the many threads ().
So how do I stop the sever from making changes based on my local client?
Once I have a formatting HDD, or a new one, my intention is to re-connect to the sever and download the server files to my new HDD.
What do I need to do to make sure this happens, and that I do not end up deleting files locally and on the server? I am using the NextCloud client.
