Stop sync on mobile device (android)

I am curious. In the mobile nextcloud app I can set a folder/file to sync. This will download the file to my mobile.

But there is no way to UNsync so it seems… how would I do that?

Downloaded files are automaitcally kept in sync with version 3.5.0.
The only way to stop it is to locally delete the file(s)

But why? I mean i dont want to delete the files from my server, but i dont want them synced with my phone all the time and it is not obvious that you delete the files from the phone or directly from the server. Especially since i need the files on the server but not on my mobilephone


was looking the same.

Here what was meant by “locally delete the files”

sync files are downloaded into your phone, you need to find where, for me :
android/media/com.nextcloud.client/nextcloud// …

If you delete from there, it’s only deleted from your phone, the app will show the files aren’t sync anymore but still on your server.

@pascuol @Bournout you can simply long click on the files (within the Nextcloud app) and hit delete from the menu. You’ll then be asked if you want to delete localy, on the server or both. So just choose to delete only the local copy and you are done.
