there is “Ignored files” setting where one can define files should be excluded from syncing. my client (upgrade from 3.1) doesn’t list *.lnk files even after “Restore defaults”, but maybe this is different for clean installation. Please double check .lnk files are listed there… Maybe some other definition matches you lnk file names?
I made some tests and confirm .lnk files will not upload from Win 10 Client 3.2 to Nextcloud.
client log shows following lines:
2021-05-05 09:50:57:506 [ warning nextcloud.gui.activity ]: Item "Readme.md.lnk" retrieved resulted in error "Symbolic links are not supported in syncing."
2021-05-05 09:50:57:506 [ info nextcloud.gui.activity ]: First checking for duplicates then add file to the notification list of ignored files: "Readme.md.lnk"
looks like links are excluded by intention:
Little more investigation gives you lot of discussions been around for ages:
there on-going discussions how/if .lnk files will be supported - stay tuned.
