The developers sadly decided it is okay to lock files

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): nope

Steps to replicate it:

  1. duplicati backups via webdav

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:


The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):


The output of your Apache/nginx/system log in /var/log/____:


It wont let me upload the log

Sorry but this post is hardley better than the first one.

From your post I can see that some files are get locked when you are trying to make backups with Duplicati.

My questions would be…

  • What kind of data are you trying to back up?
  • From where to where are you trying back data up?
  • Which operating systems, and what software versions (OS, Nextcloud, Duplicati) are involved?
  • How did you install Nextcloud and Duplicati? (manually, Docker, Snap, etc…)

Please describe in a few sentenences how your setup looks like and what you actually trying to do and what exactley happens, when you do it. If you’re not a native english speaker you can use Google translate or DeepL Translate: The world's most accurate translator. That’s what I do most of the time and as you can see in many of my posts, my sentencences are stylistically not always beautiful and grammatically not always correct. :wink: But that is not what matters. The people here need as much information as possible in order to be able to help you…
