After upgrade from an older desktop client to Version 2.5.0v2.5.0 (build 20181112) I am getting the same error message: An error occurred while opening a folder Network access is disabled.


Same problem here…

This issue is also mentioned for owncloud here:
And in bug reports for Qt:
According to that conversation a workaround is described here:
Can somebody from the nextcloud devs look into this?

Then please open an issue on the bugtracker at, that is where bugs belong.

as there is nothing more the forum could do about it this seems to be the “solution” in this case. gonna mark @tflidd 's answer as that.

pls be nice and post your filed github-issue here… thanks in advance

I experienced the same problem after stand-by.

I have build 2.5.1 desktop client, and it says the same error “Network Access is Disabled.”

Restarting the desktop client it makes it fixed. it’s syncing normally now… however. Am seriously considering Seafile due to lack of reliabilty of sync in NC lately.

Can confirm the problem with NC client 2.5.1 with win 10 1809 on three different machines. Server is NC 14.0.6.

hey… the solution answers tells that there was an issue filed on github. and with s simple click you could have found out yourself that it is still open.

thats probably way faster than typing new answers with known problems :wink:
