Local storage being used for uploads from sdcard

If you upload say 10 files from SD card the android app will copy the 10 files to the local storage on the device before uploading.

Files can be found in /nextcloud/user@//…

This is extremely inefficient and wastes storage space on local device. This part of the upload process needs to be re-coded.

This only applies to files uploaded manually, auto upload does not do this.

Is anyone working on this? This has been like this for months; including ownclouds same issue with it.

Why would you want to duplicate the data? Makes no sense to me.

I am not sure what the first intention of this was as I did not implement it.
But we should have a deeper inspection of this.
I will create an issue on github for this.
