Nextcloud client 3.2 - error on each local file or directory


Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 20.0.0 on QNAP, docker/containerstation
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): client side: Windows 10 Pro, 20H2
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): Apache
PHP version (eg, 7.4): 7,4

The issue you are facing:

  1. installing the new client 3.2 and switching the new virtual files mechanism on
  2. each creation of a file or directory - also these new “local links” or local placeholders" - the nextcloud client 3.2 is stopping the scan of the files: “Fehler beim Schreiben der Metadaten in die Datenbank”
  3. but anyway the top directory is created
  4. next scan is starting and aborting again with the same error message
    → but the next entry is created
  5. next scan is starting and aborting…
    → next entry is created
    this is re-occuring again and again …

With changing to the non-virtual file mode the client is working as usual.



Check out the logs, with F12 you can open a log window. Not sure what about the database if there is a problem creating it or with access…


I found this topic already handled in github:

And it’s a bug or existing issue within the client itself.
