The issue you are facing:
Nextcloud Client freezes when a file is added to the syncronized direcotry. Client can syncronize by downloading files from the server but can not synconize when uploading a file to the server. No error message is shown.

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

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Start nextcloud client
  2. Add a file to the syncornized directory
  3. Wait until the client starts synconizing, freez occures before any data is uploaded

I just removed the nextcloud app from /Application directory and removed the directory /Library/Containers/com.nextcloud.desktopclient.FinderSyncExt/. I then installed nextcloud via homebrew. When I started the client it started to sync straight away, without me loggin in or choosing folder to synd and the same issue as before occured. The client downloaded data from the server but was unable to upload local data.
Any one know how I can resolve this?

Solved by uninstalling the client with appCleaner and then reinstalling again.
