Hi rigerCLOUD, thank you for your reply.
nice to know aobut filesystem_check_changes option!
Correct me if I’m wrong,; this is useful in case:
- samba writes directly into data/ folder or subfolder.
- files are changed by ssh
- anything that changes data/ content but the sync client or the web interface
Honestly, I’m don’t sully understand what it means by “Check each file or folder at most once per request”.
- What request are we speaking about?
I wish to understand how often the check is called.
- Does the check call ‘occ file:scan’ for all users?
I wish to know that because, if a server has many files, it will be very heavy duty.
As of now my samba share is connected as external storage.
The “old” owncloud installation I have doesn’t deal well with the external storage.
But I have a new nextcloud test installation and it seems to update the file and folder content of the samba external storage instantly, without any trick.
In the old owncloud installation I used a work around:
I check if files has been changed within 1 minutes by command find.
If so, I run ‘occ file:scan --user myuser’.
file:scan updates also files of external storage (on owncloud).
