My Windows 10 desktop client reports “nextcloud conflict: server version downloaded, local copy renamed and not uploaded” for one file. As such, instead of having a reassuring ‘green tick’ I have an annoying ‘yellow exclamation mark’ in my system tray.
The file that is the cause of the conflict does not exist on the server, nor on my Windows 10 client machine.
I am therefore puzzled as to why the warning persists (all other files sync perfectly), and I am at a loss as to how to fix this issue and so remove this warning.
Can anyone help me with this…?
Thanks very much - a happy “Onedrive > Nextcloud convert”!
You should search on your Windows 10 Nextcloud folder for a file within conflict in the name file.
When you will reach it see into his folder you will have both file.
One with a short name and one with conflict+timestamp after the short name.
Now you have to open those two files and see which one is good and which one is old or bad.
If the file with conflict inside si good. Get the short file name out of the sync. Rename the conflict file and after a sync everything will get good.
You can delete the unsynced file if you want / and sure to do that

SSHing into my server and deleting this file, then re scanning the files using:
