Nextcloud with existing network drives


I have a question, I’m planning on installing a nextcloud server on my home network.
I allready have a pretty complex server park, now the ideal situation would be that the nextcloud server uses my file server’s share to store the media I sync to my cloud.
Is this possible, because i can’t find anything on using windows shares as main stsorage for nextcloud?
This is kinda a necessity for me as I dont have a backup plan for linux servers since my server park is windows based.

I would love to hear what the options may be.

Kind Regards,


Can be deleted, found in the documentation that SMB shares are supported.
I’m sorry for the topic, should’ve digged a little bit deeper.
