The issue you are facing:

Me and my wife are using nextcloud clients on windows.

There are 2 users :

  • Me : Sharing a music folder with my wife account
  • My wife account : The windows client nextcloud says the music folder has been shared. But it never appears. how is it possible with a fresh install ? Its the most basic possible usage of nextcloud and it just not work…

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): No

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Install Nextcloud on a server
  2. Create 2 users
  3. Share a doc from the first user to the second user
  4. See the doc not being sync with the nextcloud client…

Not that this will explain the problems you are having, but the Group Folders app might be another way to achieve your goals…
