I noticed that my note were not syncing from Ubuntu 16.04 to Window 8.
My NextCloud installation is on a BlueHost server and is version 10.0.1 ( new install a few days ago )
File encryption is turned on.
On Ubuntu I am using ownCloud Sync app. On window I am using NextCloud Sync app.
I suspect my issue is on the server side rather then any of the client apps.
I did a test by creating a text file in the notes section on the server via that NextCloud web interface.
Creating the text file and placing text in the file seem to work as expected.
One of the issues is that on Ubuntu I get a zero byte file synced even if I update the text file via the Web Interface.
On Windows I will get a 0 byte file or an empty file warning and sometimes the file will simply not sync.
Windows Client Error
D:\Users\Paul\NextCloud,The downloaded file is empty despite the server announced it should have been 77 B.
From Ubuntu I might get sync message like this
2016-10-13 9:16:00 PM, Notes/Server Side No Version Test.txt, Nextcloud, Downloaded, 0 B 2016-10-13 9:15:00 PM, Notes/Server Side No Version Test.txt, Nextcloud, Downloaded, 0 B
I disabled version control and deleted files to make sure it was not part of the problem and I still get the errors and issues.
Creating a text file in Ubuntu
Client side test.txt with the contents of This is a client side test Oct 13, 2016 synced to the server without issue.
In windows the file
Client side test.txt ended up as an error in the NextCloud Sync app
2016-10-13 10:30:04 PM, Notes/Client side Test.txt, D:\Users\Paul\NextCloud,The downloaded file is empty despite the server announced it should have been 40 B.
Shortly afterwards, I assume on the next sync attempt it was fallow up with the following error
2016-10-13 10:35:57 PM, Notes/Client side Test.txt, D:\Users\Paul\NextCloud,The item is not synced because of previous errors: We received a different E-Tag for resuming. Retrying next time.
Client side test.txt was a 0 Byte file on the Windows computer
Creating a text file on Windows did not create any errors in the Ubuntu ownCloud Client but did create a 0 byte file.
2016-10-13 10:40:31 PM, Notes/Windows Client Test.txt, Nextcloud, Downloaded, 0 B 2016-10-13 10:36:31 PM, Notes/Windows Client Test.txt, Nextcloud, Downloaded, 0 B
The entry above
2016-10-13 10:36:31 PM should of been a 0 byte file as there was no text in the file yet.
2016-10-13 10:40:31 PM however should not be 0 bytes as text has been added to the file on windows.
The file created on windows did sync to the server properly with its contents.
The file created on Ubuntu did sync to the server properly with its contents.
My Ubuntu installation is set to run on local time rather then UTC time.
Windows as far as I know is on local time by default.
I am baffled on how to fix this or what the issue might be. I am grateful for any help.
