Operating system and version: TrueNAS-SCALE-22.02.4

Hello all,

My first time with the community and configuring my storage so that it is seen in NextCloud.

I am using TrueNas Scale. In the NextCloud app configuration I have mounted my storage so that it is mountable within nextcloud, as per the following screenshot.

Inside NextCloud>Administration I can setup my External Storage as “Local” and I get the green tick to suggest all is fine.

if I then go to browse the External Storage files, I can see my storage root directory and all its subdirectories, however when I open any of the directories, it is empty.

I however notice that under “Personal Settings”, I can see the local storage I have added, but notice if I click on the tick, it gives me an error to check the configuration.

This looks to be some sort of permission error, but I am not sure what I am missing ? I ensured when setting up the local storage inside nextcloud that admin and the admin group had permission under the “Available” section.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
