The issue you are facing:
I’ve uploaded a PDF file. With the next sync it’s marked as ignored. The client log show:
retrieved resulted in “Die Datei ist in der Ignorierliste aufgeführt.”

But I never added there. The file is placed into a shared folder owned by someone else. A sync within owned folder works. It’s not happen to md files or txt files.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. place a PDF in a shared folder
  2. sync via Nextcloud client

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

[ OCC::SocketListener::sendMessage ]:	Sending SocketAPI message --> "STATUS:IGNORE:
retrieved resulted in  ...

prior this I found this in logs:

info nextcloud.gui.activity ... First checking for duplicates then add file to the notification list of ignored files ...

Can you check in the settings, in the general tab, there is a button to edit the ignored files, if that file is added? You are sure it is the pdf file and not just a temporary file like my_document.pdf.bak~?

The pdf is not in the (viewable?) ignored files. Is there a hidden list of ignored files?
An interesting note is: if the file is in a “private” folder, it was synchronized successfully. It’s ignored only in a shared folder.
