I am installing a Nextcloud 20 server on a Ubuntu system.
I have about 2 TB of data that I want to copy to a dedicated disk (these are two disks combined via LVM).
For the moment this disk is empty, I need to copy the data to it, in the directory defined for this purpose during the installation of Nextcloud.
If I use Nextcloud’s synchronisation tool, the copy will take me at least 1 or 2 weeks.
If I connect a disk to my machine and copy the files “manually”, via the Ubuntu file manager, it will take me about 48 hours.
The time saved is more than appreciable. Will this procedure cause any problems?
For example with regard to access rights and the user concerned, normally the access rights to Nextcloud data folders are assigned to “www-data”. Will copying the files myself cause problems? How, if at all, can I avoid them?
Thank you in advance for your answers
