The issue you are facing:
When copying or moving folders or files (between external storage), the progress bar does not show any progress. When uploading via the browser to the same storage, everything works without problems.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):
Yes, but I am new to Nextcloud

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Copy file or folder from one external storage to another storage (tried WebDAV, SFTP and local mounts)

I couldn’t find any related information in the logs.

So, which is it?

Please detail your full external storage setup you are referring to, including permissions and ownership and which kinds of external storage you are using. Use ls -la if it helps to copy paste the proper info.
Pleas do not assume we have any idea of what you are talking about without logs or explicit details. We are volunteers. :wink:
