Setting chunksize in the desktop client


I’ve a selfhosting Nextcloud Instance. For a long time now I’ve some proplems with uploading files larger than 20 MB using the desktip client. Is there a way to set the chunksize to 5 MB for example in the desktop configuration file?

Best regards, @nihe

You can use environment variables to change the chunksize:

It is already 5MB by default.

Something is up with the latest version of Desktop docs. There’s a more extensive section covering this topic that is supposed to be above that in a larger table. It’s in repository so I think it’s an RST formatting issue. The older published revisions have it - e.g.:

Thanks for your post. It works now.
